Taster at Whole Lotta Brews Going On at Whole Foods in Folsom. Aroma and flavor has a good amount of bittersweet chocolate and very light chili. Palate has great carbonation and overall mouthfeel. Nice beer.

Can from Bier Huis, Ossett. Not sure how a 7% beer brewed with chocolate and spices (which spices?) can end up so thin. Everything is in the aroma.

The pour is dark with a thin tan head. The nose is coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts, dark fruit. The taste is medium sweet And low bitter. A little on the bland side. The texture is smooth and creamy, body is medium and finish is medium.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From notes, consumed on 4/25/13. Can poured into a snifter. Pours black with a finger and a half of tan head. Aromas of clove, chocolate, ginger, cinnamon. Tasting notes of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, subtle chipotle and spices. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Was expecting this to be a bit better but still solid.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours black with a large brown head. Moderate retention and no lace. Soft roasted aroma and flavor with a touch of chocolate. Minimal spice or chilies. Medium body, soft carbonation and a short finish. This came off flawed to me. Disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
high marks for aroma and appearance - aroma has many things - nice chocolate, coffee, maybe smoke or roasted. dark dark pour. palate is thin for style/ what aroma is like. too much carbonation in taste. this would be better with much lower carbonation - still good, slightly creamy - vanilla, with all of the aromas in taste. good brew with much happening.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Chocolate nose. Creamy tan head. Sips sweet chocolate. Middle has Chipotle pepper and sweetness, which to my surprise isn’t working well. Full body throughout. Milky cocoa in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can in the Head of Steam, Durham. Black body with fading tan head. Huge chocolate coffee aroma. Vary dry and bitter with lots of coffee and dark chocolate and a burnt toast finish. Nice but lacking something.

Very tasty Belgian stout. Unique flavors that compliment the aromas. Let me turn down the thermostat and enjoy.
