COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer pours a dark brown with a moderate tan head and smell of toasted coffee and light cocoa. It has a pronounced roasted coffee flavour with slightly sweet cocoa notes concluding with a subtle, well balanced, hop bitterness.

Pours very dark brown with a huge foamy tan head and a chocolate and a treacle aroma. There is a chocolate and molasses flavor with a slightly bitter chalky finish. Not bad.

Bottle from Trader Joeís Sacramento. Pours dark brown with a rich tan head and a strong treacle aroma. There is a chocolate and coffee flavor that finishes a bit soapy and bitter. Looks good, smells good, but the flavor leaves a lot to be desired.

This was a lot better than I expected. Coffee and chocolate balance with some bitterness. Much better than the Boatswain DIPA.

Me likey the Chocolate Bunny Stout. Plenty of cocoa in the flavor with roasted malt and something sweet, maybe brown sugar. Hops are present in the finish but arenít overpowering. Milk chocolate lingers after the hops fade.

A very strong tasting chocolate stout. Pours like black syrup, with a nice tab head. Smells and tastes of chocolate as well as coffee and caramel. Definitely more of a chocolate taste then most of its kind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scored this beer for under $3 at a local grocery store. There is a slight chocolate aroma, but not much. Tasted is a solid stour with a good chocolate presence, but nothing overwhelming. Overall for the price this is a very solid beer, Iíve actually purchased this one a few times now. Itís a great buy when your looking for a solid beer without having to dish out too much dough.

Wow...a double aliased beer...thatís how you build a brand.... Anyway, hard to find any chocolate in the aroma, just smells like a boring stout. Flavor has a slight hint of chocolate but mostly only the bitter aspects and those can easily be confused (or correctly identified) as crappy hops. An average stout...the chocolate is hardly worth mentioning.

Enjoyed via trader joes for 2 bucks. Some rich dark cocoa on the nose with form dark coffee. Clean black, thinnish body, mocha head. Amazing balance of dark grain, chocolate, and coffee. Iím serious. Such a deal!

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 I found this to be a pretty solid beer. The flavor is good, plenty of consistent chocolate throughout. A decent thickness. Pleasantly surprised. Thanks Trader Joeís! Had again under Underworld label. Still liked it a bit.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is light roasty and sweet, bland but not offensive. Sweet and some caramel candy sugary and cocoa. Flavor starts sweet, quickly picking up a more bitter chocolate, which is good until it becomes metallic and astringent. Finishes bitter and sharp. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.
