Pours an opaque black on tap with creamy off-white head. Aroma is yes, chocolate with a slight roast. Taste follows, sweet and creamy. Very nicely done.

Key at the brewery. Pours a deep brown, very thin tan head that reduces to the edges. Heavy chocolate aroma, with some toffee, bubblegum and cream. Very chocolatey sweetness, very light roasted bitterness. Bit prickly for a stout, but a nice creamy chocolate aftertaste. Very tasty effort.

Not may favorite from Harpoon, there is a definite chocolate note to it, but I am not a big stout guy, so my opinion is biased.

I like chocolate stouts, this one is fairly tasty although somewhat light body. Creamy feel and a strong milk chocolate taste

Pour is so dark that it is almost black. Small dark tan head that disapates quickly. Aroma is bitter dark chocolate,malts and coffee. You can’t miss the chocolate in this one it is rich and delectable. You get just a touch of hops in the finsh a great beer.

Dark as night. Looks like black coffee. Very strong chocolate aroma. Tastes almost entirely like dark chocolate with toasted malt and hints of espresso and nut. Very strong alcohol (5.9 ABV). I love Stouts and this is a great example. If they dialed back the chocolate and the alcohol a tad, it would be close to perfect.

Pours black with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Great milk chocolate aroma. The flavor doesn't quite live up to the aroma. Flavor of chocolate is definitely there with a bit of an alcohol/cough medicine flavor.

Bottle. Pours as one might expect, if perhaps just a bit thin. The predominate character is most definitely milk chocolate. Both in the milk chocolate aroma and the vaguely more alcohol-laden but still chocolatey character. Fun beer. (#5412, 1/8/2014)

Not necessarily my cup of tea, but not horrible. Big fan of dark beers but this is too far from my comfort zone to buy again.
