3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger and a half of off-white head that settles to leave some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by chocolate with some hints of vanilla and roasted grains. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a light roasted grain bitterness with some hints of vanilla. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. A decent brew, but there could be some more roasted bitterness to offset the sweetness of the chocolate.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light brown color with a poor head. No co2. It smells strongly like sweet chocolate, I can sniff my glass all night long. The taste is watery, a little bitter with an astringent palate. The notes of chocolate remain in the brain. Somehow good.

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkle, rotbraune Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist röstig, schwer, Halbbitterschokolade und etwas karamellig. Der Geschmack ist schlank, Zartbitterschokolade, leicht säuerlich und kaum bitter. Die Karbonisierung ist stark. Im Nachgeschmack kommt die Schokonote gut raus.

Dark brown reddish body with foamy off white head and nice lacing. Malty prune aroma, a touch of cocoa. Taste is a little bitter dark chocolate, sweet malts. Not bad.

Looks more like a 2IPA than a chocolate stout. The aroma certainly has some chocolate as well as milk and coffee. The palate is thin for a stout but it’s not watery. The hops are more prominent in the mouth, together with chocolate.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Clear golden brown with nice white head. aroma is roasted malts, sweet chocolate and some floral hop. Medium mouth feel with medium carbonation. Aftertaste is floral hop bitterness with cocoa sweetness in the end. overall: miss the wow factor. Good implemented chocolate.

Beer and chocolate - awesome.
Dark brown color is topped with a small off-white head. Initially the aroma is nothing but a strong alcohol smell - disappointed. But after letting it breath for some moments, you get an amazing dominant chocolate aroma (similar to chocoltae liqueur). Taste is sweet, chocolatey and pleasanty roasted. Finish is slightly hoppy, but otherwise neutral. After some time the bitter aftertaste kicks in, and rounds this beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bit of a bland brew with a hit of chocolate. The pour is dark brown with a thickbeige head. The nose is malty with a light roasted note, toasted barley, toffee and caramel. Mild malt flavour with a bit of sweetness but lacks a balance. A mild chocolate flavor lingers.

(Bottle): Pours a mahogany with a small off white head. Aroma of cocoa powder, nuts, caramel. Quite a potent chocolatey / nutty taste, somewhat artificial-ish. Some malt and caramel on the finish. Overall not bad, the chocolate flavours aren’t quite right for me.

Heavy found it in Vrutak and shared with me, thanks Natko! Didn’t note the colour, just the small off white head. Sweetish cocoa aroma, quite nice if simple, common among chocolate beers I guess. Cocoa taste mixed with herbal bitterness which shows up near the end, light sweetness, slightly messy but not a bad beer.
