COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bigger and more chocolaty than ever... brewed to export strength (7%ABV) using over 26 pounds of Valrhona chocolate as well as an additional Kilo of Dutched Cocoa Powder and Belgian yeast for a little added complexity... dark, rich and well chocolaty... forget the flowers, get your valentine a beer.

Tap at the brewpub, served warm. Full aroma, coffee, bittersweet chocolate. Light cookie. Slightly sour milk flavor, with a very muddy yeast. Almost more reminiscent of a chocolate weizenbock than a stout. Not too bad; itís tough to fault a brewer for lack of accuracy when they are brewing a nonexistent style.

Dark, but not opaque and a thin tannish head. Roasty malt with a bit of chocolate, somewhat less than expected given the description. Very nice and crisp finish. Not bad, but not a standout.

On draft at the brewpub during the March 8 pre-Flyers game pub run in Philly. The pour was deep brown black, tan to chocolate colored head, good lacing. The aroma was belgian yeasty, chocolate and cocoa. The flavor was the same, some spicy elements under it all, caramel and fruity notes emerging and distracting, full chocolate presence along with some phenolic yeast character. Mouthfeel was full, yet not sticky. I donít think Iím much into Belgian Stouts afterall.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasted malty aroma with some sweet chocolate notes. The flavor has roasted grains, chocolate, cocoa powder, and a light, almost fruity sweet note. Pretty good.
