SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2011
On tap at the brewery this past weekend-served with Godiva chocolate-which is always fun. A- Being that this was a nitro-tap the appearance is perfect. Served with a wonderful frothy, creamy 3 finger or so creme brulee colored head. Perfect retention at 1 finger with lacing all the way down the glass. Body is a treanslucent, nearly opaque dark brown hue. S- Yep. The nose is pretty much what you would expect when you read/hear about/see a chocolate beer. Nose is very rich of thick, dark chocolate. Bittersweet with the accent on the sweet, a hint of toffee as well. T- Flavor is very similar to the taste. Flavor is very rich and chocolatey. Liquid bittersweet chocolate with the faintest hints of roasted malt and toffee deep in the background. M- Low to medium carbonation and a rich, thick, smooth, creamy mouthfeel. D- This is an excellent stout and pretty much fits the description. A chocolate stout with more chocoloate added to it. Its like the triple chocolate cake of beers. I really liked this beer but I see it as somewhat more of a novelty brew-but it really is one of the better single stouts I have had. This really reminds me of Southern Tier Choklat-its just as thick and rich-but the alcohol is not there. Its a shade sweeter as well. Serving type: nitro-tap Reviewed on: 02-23-2011 03:20:03

Big sweet stout that is dark but has a nice head or lacing. Great chocolate taste with a little roast along with the mounds of chocolate.

Refrigerated 12oz. Brown bottle poured into a glass. Black with very small light brown head. Aroma is milk chocolate, medium body, lower carbonation, and little small bubble lacing. Taste is milk chocolate. Back to back with Terrapin Liquid Bliss, I prefer Liquid Bliss.

Bottle: Very dark brown with a small tan head. Chocolate fudge, cocoa, vanilla aroma. Sweet chocolate malt, vanilla flavour. Very tasty...though it comes across with BIG powdered chocolate attitude... A little artificial, but pretty good, anyway.

Bottle. Powdered milk chocolate, hay, and malt aroma. Dark brown with small tan head. Lightly sweet chocolate malt and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Good body. Tasty.

Underdogs88 (261) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Strong chocolate character on the nose. Appearance is a very dark brown with a small tan head. Flavor tastes like a chocolate wafer with a mild acidic bite on the backend. Mouthfeel is medium high with medium low carbonation. Overall, this beer is ok. The chocolate is there, but it tastes one dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rather lack luster and forgettable. Expected more. Aroma was solid and appearance was average. Felt like it needed something more body wise. Kinda thin and light with less creaminess than I was looking for. Slightly fizzy in the mouth. Flavor was sweet but i thought i was going to get more chocolate. For some reason i kept making a connection to a cola. Wont be revisiting this one.

ttutony (789) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Dark brown with a brown head. Aroma of chocolate and a slight bit of coffee. Fairly light and easy drinking for a stout. Seems more like a porter. But overall pretty enjoyable if not slightly sweet stout/porter/whatever you want to call it.

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a thicker brown to black with a thin, khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has chocolate, graham crackers, toasted marshmallow, chocolate milk powder. The taste is sweet and chocolaty. Thicker mouthfeel with lower carbonation. Pretty nice.
