Beachmaster (110) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bomber into a pint glass. Pours black, with a moderate tan head which quickly fades into a disc on the surface. Not much aroma, but faint notes of dark malt and oatmeal present. Taste is dark malt and good chocolate. Finish is long, with a creamy mouth feel and long finish with just the right note of hop bitterness. Very good.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Black pour with a fast fading tan head. Sweet chocolate snout with notes of vanilla and roast. Smooth, sweet chocolate laden flavour with some malts present. Some hop bitterness emerged towards the finish. Drinkable but I’m not really sold. Seems over-rated.

Bottle - Pours black with a big tan head. Chocolate, espresso and some hop. Taste is chocolate up front with a dry finish. There’s a hop taste in the middle which I’m really not sure of. Medium mouthfeel.

Wittales (633) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Appearance was clear black with diminishing creamy beige 1/2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are chocolate, roasted barley, mocha latte sweetness, no alcohol. Taste are chocolate coffee upfront with middle mocha sweetness and roasty finish. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, lasting roasty light dryish finish. A enjoyable chocolate stout, smooth out the finish, then would be stunning.

The aroma reminds me of a sweetened coffee or perhaps a Bailey’s with coffee, it truly is intoxicatingly outstanding. Bitter chocolate also on the nose. I also detect some slight hop bitterness on the aroma and it is very pleasant. Pours a dark brown with a tan head that endures well over a couple of minutes and leaves great lacing everywhere. Dark malt sweetness on entry but not overly sweet, The bitterness will always be present. On the palate the bitterness pops out very nicely, perhaps a bit exaggerated, but it works well given the other elements present here. When it warms up enough, the chocolate aromas shine more than the coffee ones. However the bitterness will stay on the palate for a rather long time, unless you’re having a rich chocolate dessert with this, which I feel is what it was made for. An outstanding bittersweet example of this style and would probably be a great component in a cocktail.
