JoeMcPhee (8210) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2010
Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Deep brown/black pour. The nose is intensely chocolatey. Lots of soft milk chocolate syrup over a sweet rich maltiness. Not at all brash or roasty. I don’t know if there is chocolate in here, but it would stack up well against any chocolate stout in the chocolate department. Soft sweetness and a thick wheaty texture make this drink like a glass of dessert.

GT2 (7884) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pours a deep brown with okay lacing. Nose and taste are loaded with cocoa, dark chocolate, coffee. Taste is a lot like a malted chocolate milkshake. Very yummy.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Rich cocoa tops this Stout’s caramel malts, as light roastiness undermines the otherwise smooth and sweet finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the coppery dark brown.
-The cocoa provides a beautiful aroma for dessert lovers, but also a few vegetal notes in the flavour profile.
-This might be a tad too intense on the cocoa for my liking, but I know a lot of people who are going to love this.
-The body is rather lean for a sweet stout.
-The finish is quite low on the hop side of things.

On tap at the brewpub.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Pours pitch black, not too much lacing. Aroma is strikingly bold: roasts, soil, burnt crème brulee, chocolate, toasted biscuit. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate, toasted nuts, and a wonderful smoky tone throughout. Deep flavor for the ABV, the sweetness is mild, well integrated, and 100% tasty.
