Tap sample. Poured a black color with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark chocolate malt, toasted oats and milk sugar aroma. Medium to heavy dark chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy sweet candy finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good rich beer.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2010
Growler RBWG 10 Pours motor oil black with a very small, fat-bubbled, beige head. The aroma is nutty and chocolaty more nutty than anything else. Full-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is much like the nose, plenty of sweet chocolate, almonds and cardboard-like oxidation. Fades rather than finishes. Thanks to darkguardian for bringing this one along to share!

Sample at the brewpub. Brownish-black pour with a medium creamy beige head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Sweet chocolate and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of chocolate syrup, roast malt and mild coffee in the background. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

This came out on tap at Jackie-Os on 2/14 this year, I was looking forward to trying it since theyd announced that it was upcoming on their blog. Didnt make the connection that it was a V-day beer until I showed up that night, but whatever -- this is legitimately a fantastic chocolate stout, despite the gimmickry. It definitely delivers in the chocolatiness department (I often find a lot of chocolate stouts to be lacking there). Black color, great creamy brown head, leaving plenty lace. Really great-looking. Excellent, thick and creamy texture, bigger body. Slight viscosity / oiliness, but its an appropriate amount for this type of beer.. Light and crisp carbonation makes this easy to drink still, as does the balance. Good taste - really sweet, but balanced with enough bitterness to back it up. How chocolate should taste, really.. its of the darker chocolate variety, but the milk stoutiness comes through wonderfully making this like an really rich chocolate milk. Very fair price at $4 each, and an outright steal during power hour ($2 each). Really delicious - was still wowed by it after the first pint, so I had another... Another half-pint was all I really needed, though, 32oz of this stuff can be pretty intense. No way I could have finished a 3rd. Like actual chocolate, this is one to enjoy in moderation - something to treat yourself to. It fulfills its niche very well, it is what it is.
