Draft. Pours near black with a small tan head. Aromas of brownie, chocolate pudding, vanilla, and a touch of roast. Imagine melting down a chocolate bar and then mixing it with chocolate ice cream....Bam! What a wonderful brew. Insanely drinkable and full of flavor. Yummmm

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Opaque, tall, very persistent, tan head.
Rich coffee nose.
Full body, lean despite thick foam, rather dry, hint of sourness, intense flavor but rather hollow middle and lacking, watery, flat mouthfeel. Here it would be nice to have some acidity, alcohol, sweetness or bitterness. Short on palate with a dry, sour finish.
Intense milk chocolate flavor, roast grains, chocolaty finish.
Contradictory ensemble of qualities and faults, will probably appeal to some palates but for me, I just hope it could be fixed.

A fairly decent aroma but lacking in flavor. If you want a chocolate flavor there are plenty of others to go for.

Pours dark tan with a frothy tan head. Aroma is decadent with loads of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of espresso. Smooth medium body with a medium sweet flavor and a bitter medium lasting finish.

Great beer. Rich dark brown color, creamy head, excellent lacing. Sweet aroma, not too chocolaty, and the taste has a different flavor than the aroma... More malty, mocha.

Tap at Stags Head. Deep brown pour with creamy head. Nose of fudge. Tastes super chocolaty, with some heavy cream, earth, vanilla, coffee, and more chocolate. Just rich dessert beer. Just a touch to cloying for me

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Bottle into pint glass, deep dark brown color with tan head. Aroma of heavy chocolate and roasted malt, light notes of coffee and marshmallow. Taste adds notes of chocolate milk, nuttiness, cola (interesting note), black coffee, liquorice and slight earthy hop note. Light body, low carbonation, slick, dry with bittersweet roasty finish. Smells like a chocolate bomb but taste brings out much more complexity. Very nice.

Avg stout. Taste like it needed to brew longer. Plenty of chocolate and malt. Just not enough beer.

Had this one from the bottle. Pours out a nice black with a beige head. The aroma is just huge walls of chocolate. It almost has a fudge type of smell to it. This taste right off the bat is chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. But in the aftertaste you get some coffee flavors coming through mixing in with the chocolate. Which is a great finish. This beer is super, super sweet. Definitely one to have as desert after dinner. But pretty good overall. In my honest opinion.
