Enjoyed on tap at Goose Island Stout Fest 2012 in Chicago, IL. This was one of the more enjoyable stouts that I had throughout the day. App is pitch black, moderate to thick consistency, rich tan head. Aroma of chocolate, bit of lactose, cocoa, decent amount going on with the sweetness but it didn’t smell too much like a candy bar. Taste is very good, bit of peanuts, like Nutella, rich like a peanut butter consistency, very good stuff.

A beautiful beer, not extreme in any way, just beautifully crafted. Subtle aroma of roast malt and coffee, beautiful pitch black with a thick tan head out of the growler. Mellow tasting, like a perfect pot roast is mellow, with a hint of chocolate, very creamy but not viscous palate, slightly bitter, just a touch sweet. A total home run from the local boys. About to finsih the whole growler by myself in about three hours, have only ever finsihed a growler by myself once before (Half Acre Big Hugs, yum). So good. These guys can do porters and stouts like no one else in the region right now. They seem to shoot for great taste and balance instead of extremeness and gimmickrey. Though if they ever barrel-aged this stuff, all hell would break loose.

Fresh from the growler on its release date, this dark, thick stout was meant for happy drinking on a Chicago winter day. Great aroma with milk coffee and chocolate, full bodied and a little flat makes for easy drinking. Deep dark notes of chocolate and dark malts with no hops to speak of. A favorite of mine!

poured from growler into a half acre tulip. Pours a nice dark chocolate color with a nice roasty head very well balanced and aromatic with notes of dark chocolate, cacao nibs, roasted coffee beans and malts. Full bodied with a real nice and smooth feel. Very drinkable with flavors of coffee beans, roasted malts and dark chocolate Though it slightly lacks in the middle, this is a great stout at 5%. Brings real good depth and flavor while being at a lower abv.

Draft at Devil’s Den in Philadelphia, PA. Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a one finger beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind. Complex malt aroma with a nice balance of sweet and roasted notes.  Hints of sweet and dark chocolate, oatmeal, coffee bean and toffee along with lactic sugar/cream.  Smells like a chocolate milk shake. Slightly chewy medium body with a nice balance of sweet and roasted chocolate malt along with earthy, bitter hops and lactic sugar.  Really chocolate-y with hints of caramel, toffee and nut.  Some roasted dark malt notes and hops contribute bitterness.  Hits of oatmeal, coffee and toast but the silky chocolate and lactic sugar notes dominate making this beer silky smooth and easy to drink.

Is Chocolate Camaro a sex joke? Because I think it should be a sex joke. Not going to come up with one though because that would require actually being funny. Very dark brown pour, near black, with medium tan head that slowly dissipates into a tan film. Nice lacing. I’ve always thought it was OK to have 7 out of every 10 jokes fail. .300 batting average will get you into the hall of fame. Aroma of Dark chocolate, oreo cookie, light roast. Maybe a bit of cocoa. Flavor is dark chocolate, cocoa, some nuget. Actually, extremely dry. Probably the driest chocolate stout I’ve ever had. Basically, liquid dark chocolate without any annoying sweetness. Which is really nice. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Light lactose sweetness peaks out as it warms. Quite an excellent chocolate stout. Hard not to get behind this.

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.

Shared growler with Sherm1016....my pleasure!! As noted, pours black with thin head..will do more if you are in a hurry (as we kind of were). Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate....a little bitter but that mellows out as you let it warm....it is better as it warms a bit...but that let’s you savor it as well....loved it. Do hope that Half Acre bottles this one so we can enjoy it more often.

Growler and served in Bells snifter: Deep brown and nearly opaque, some purple and tan highlights, frothy but small tan head with okay lacing. The aroma has notes of bakers chocolate, vanilla beans, burnt coffee, blackstrap molasses, prune, fig lactic acid, walnut and roast, some leathery and tobacco earthy yeast esters. The taste starts a tad sweet and syrupy but a nice dash of lactic acid and acidic fruit help balance before the hop and coffeeish bitterness comes about. Nutty and roasty throughout with an earthy component. Even a touch tannic and woody toward the end. The mouth feel is quite smooth and moderately carbonated, a but thinner than expected but that makes it quite easy to drink. Overall a very successful effort IMO. I am now enjoying glass #3, yummy.
