Chocolaty flavor and rich yoo hoo ish character. Toasty malt . I wanted to love this one, couldn’t though. The raw chocolate character was too dominant and singular. Full bodied and viscous.

Black in color with a frothy, mocha colored head. Lacing is okay. Nutty and chocolaty aroma. I also notice some vanilla and a hint of cherry. Creamy texture with a smoothy sweet finish. Medium-bodied. It reminds me of those chocolate liquior bottles you could buy at costco around christmas time but not as strong. I thought it was a great beer to enjoy while watching a movie.

12fl oz bottle poured into an English pint. Black as oil with a medium brown head. Aroma is chocolate. Flavor is very much chocolate milk with a slight hops bite and some serious alcohol on the back end. Long bittersweet cocoa finish. Nice dessert beer.

Scored a 4 pack of these while in St. Louis on a business trip. Pours an inky black with a small creamy chocolate colored head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma of cocoa, molasses, lactose. Taste is cocoa and milk chocolate through and through. Truth in advertising here. This is a very chocolaty beer! A bit of coffee, molasses, caramel and black licorice in the background. Very full bodied. Thick, creamy texture. Fairly high carbonation. Long, somewhat dry finish of cocoa and milk chocolate. Simply an outstanding chocolate stout! Great dessert beer.

Pour from four pack of 12oz bottles. Smells like chocolate, soot, roast malts, and sweets. It’s dark, smooth and rich. Very good!

On tap at Odell. Wow, very silky smooth and delicious. Big chocolate taste and aroma. Like a chocolate shake, but it is beer.

Bottle, shared with my wife. Dark brown, dark copper highlights, tan head. Aroma of cocoa powder with roasty undertones. Semi-sweet chocolate flavour without having an extract quality. Dark roasted malts balance out the residual sugars so that this doesn’t ever come close to being cloying-- not too sweet at all really. My only criticism is that this beer doesn’t have the weight or body of an imperial stout; it is an excellent sweet stout however.

Bottle at home. Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Lots of chocolate on the nose, and some roasty coffee. Flavor is lots of chocolate malt with some milky coffee. Smooth bodied, slightly sweet but not cloying. A nice beer.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with paperthin beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong milk chocolate and light roast. Slick mouthfeel with rich chocolate malt, easy to drink, very good.
