hopscotch (9487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle... Pitch black ale with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. Good retention. Chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla nose. Sweet, chocolaty flavor with just enough bitterness to prevent cloying. Full-bodied and velvety with pillow-soft carbonation. Mostly chocolaty, lightly bitter-sweet finish... dries out just a touch at the wee end.

Gorbalev (2950) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle courtesy of and shared with Blankboy. Rich malt, sweet and dry chocolate, yeasty, smoky - very nice aroma! Pitch black, nice sized bubbly and foamy brown head. Decent taste - unfortunately bottly at first (how?) then nice dry chocolate with the Belgian hint of yeast. Not near as flavourful as name suggest, but still a good beer.

Pours a dark drown body with a medium-sized creamy tan head. Aroma of cocoa, sourness, roastiness, pepper, and vanilla. Flavor of chocolate, lactose sourness, vinous, and light coffee.

The aroma is very chocolaty with burnt malt and coffee. The appearance is dark brown with a medium sized foamy tan head. The flavor is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a great beer.

The beer came in a classy looking 750 ml bomber with a wire cage and a cork. The cork popped up on its own while being unscrewed, and the pour revealed a highly carbonated dark brown stout. The head looked like whipped cream on a hot chocolate. The smell of this beer was sweet and full of chocolate. The real chocolate present in the beer showed up very well in the smell. And unlike most other beers of this type, there was not a hint of roastiness. The taste felt the same way, and reminded me of the occasions when I had paired dark chocolate with a stout, except this time everything was already in the glass. Very well blended taste as the dark malt and chocolate played off each other’s strengths. The taste started off like a dark chocolate, and finished with a sweet flair. If was to pick a bone with something, it would be the sort of thin body. Everything else about this beer was indulgent and luscious as promised on the label. Dessert in a bottle with a second helping to spare.

RSRIZZO (1870) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2008 Had at GABF on 10/11/2007. Aroma is a faint roasted scent. Color is a solid black with light carbonation and a thin tight head. Flavor is a nice roasted malt flavor that finishes with a toasted flavor and mild bitterness. There is no chocolate to be detected at all. I am very disappointed, I was expecting a very complex brew not just a stout. 11/27/08 - From the bottle this time and the beer is the same. I just don’t get any chocolatte off of it.

Stine (1627) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2007 Tap at Max’s on Broadway. Pours somewhat thinly to a charcoal hue that retains a wispy head of tan. Vinous aroma suggests raspberries and black cherries, layering into baker’s chocolate, cola, and raisins. Late hint of wet graham. Flavor asserts itself with a banal, tinny metallic note intially, settling comfortably into soft smoke, pumpernickel bread, oak and bittersweet cocoa. Smooth, lightly carbonated, and of medium thickness. Slighty sugary finish with hazelnut mocha; earthy coffee beans drying it out. Off-putting in an indescribable way, but certainly a solid effort.
