COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re rolling out the muscle of love, Chocolate Camaro. This year, this tubbed out guzzler of choco thrust power rounded out just as we’d hoped. Smooth, milk chocolatey delight cruising down your fun highway all the way to pleasure town.

An incredible stout from half acre. Super chocolately and smells like chocolate. Easy to drink. Had at half acre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler from the brewery courtesy of dwm1034. Thanks! Pours a jet black with a thin tan head. Aroma is nothing but chocolate. Medium to heavy on the palate with medium carbonation. Flavor is bitter chocolate and roasted malt. One of the better sweet stouts I’ve had. I hope they bottle this and make it a regular.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2011 growler card #2 punch #3. aroma is black cherry, raspberry and luscious fudge brownies. appearance is 99% opaque with filthy brown tinged head in large amounts but moderate to low carb. flavor echoes aroma with further pressure from the fruity notes, raspberry espically. those esters lighten the chocolate and keep it tempered and interesting, checking pure sweetness.

Nice espresso head with great lacing on top of a dark murky pour. Aroma of nutty chocolate. Creamy mouth. Taste is full of nut and chocolate. Slight bitter finish mellows the sweetness. Nicely balanced.

Bomber pours an opaque black with medium tan head that never completely disappears, but which leaves faint lacing. Aroma is full of chocolate, coffee, cream, and bready malts. Body is medium to full, befitting a stout, with minimal carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Taste is sweet, but not as sweet as I had feared it might be, with a touch of hoppy bitterness in the middle. There’s nothing over the top here, just a very good chocolate stout and another reason I’ll check out what Half Acre might come up with next.

ryecatcher (787) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Bomber from the brewery. Pours a dark and opaque stouty brown-black, thin espresso colored head that dissipated quickly. Nose is chocolate, caramel, hint of butterscotchy diacetyl, and dark roast. Mouth is smooth, but a bit watery -- particularly for a stout. Surprisingly dry (where’s that lactose they’re advertising) and most of the chocolate flavor s overwhelmed by the roasty notes. More like a Chocolate Economy Car. Not bad, but not mnd-blowing.

5 ounce sampler at the Half Acre tap room. Aroma was coffee and cola, appearance was dark brown and thinly foamed on top, taste was more predominantly coffee than chocolate, palate was fairly light and fizzy. The chocolate flavors are a dark, semisweet variety. Overall, it’s A-ok, drinkable, accessible for the masses. I had expected a heavier body, thicker, creamier, more chocolate.

Growler thanks to msante79. I’ve been extremely impressed with everything I’ve had from Half Acre so far so I’m excited to try this one. Pour is dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla in the aroma. Sweet taste with milk chocolate, coffee, nuttiness, and some cream. Not overly sweet at all. Slightly bitter in finish. Fairly light mouthfeel.

ddemmingjr (701) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2012
On tap at Hot Chocolate in Wicker Park: poured blackish brown with a pleasant ring of light brown head. Nose is milk chocolate, espresso, milk thistle, roasted malts. On the palate, light to medium bodied, subtle chocolate, more roasted malt profile than hops. Dry with more going on in the nose than once on the tongue. Solid session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from trade. Pours black with tan head. Smell is sweet, sugary, roasted. Taste is smooth, roasted coffee, a bit sweet. Tasty.
