A little let down on this one. I guess the fact it was named after cheap chocolate sold to the masses should have been the first sign. There are better stouts and better chocolate stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (15188) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. As Boatswain Chocolate Stout. A two-finger, light beige head forms over a clear looking dark brown to black body. The aroma is cocoa-ish and lighlty chocolate-ish, with some roasted notes. A touch of dms in the initial flavor is soon overpowered by roasted malts and chocolate. Some bitterness. Soft and smooth on the palate, medium body fullness. A bit sweet towards the end, but it dries up. Perhaps a bit one-tracked, but far from bad. 130808
