UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 [bomber] HUGE cocoa aroma, I smelled it as soon as I opened the bottle. Pours a thick black with a very small tan head. Flavors match the aroma with strong chocolate and cocoa, mild coffee and an excellent balance between overall bitterness and sweetness. This is one of my favorites.

Cask (GBBF): Black with a huge tan head. Bitter coffee/choc flavour. Loads of cocoa in the aroma. Medium bodied, quite nice, but nothing exceptional.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Chocolate is not over baring... 22oz is a perfect service size. Would not suggest drinking large amounts of this. Like all of Rogue’s beers, this one is smooth, malty, with a sweet chocolate start, and finishes with a smooth rosted and ever so slightly hoppy finish to break the sweetness.

22 oz bottle, cellared for about 1&1/2 years. Pours a nice thick black pint with a craggy chocolate brown head. Smells wonderful with lots of roasted barley and chocolate. Had to get my nose in there real deep to suck up the wonderful aroma. Thick full-bodied mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation. Packed full of flavor, reminds me of dessert in a glass. The chocolate really comes out in this brew but not in a sickening sweet way. The finish hangs out for a long time and sets you up for the next sip nicely. This is one of my favorites, I’ve been drinking this for about 3 years since I tried it at a beerfest where it was served by the woman on the bottle herself. Cellaring has certainly not hurt this one. I find that it has led to a lot of sedimentation that has left the beer a lot brighter and cleaner tasting. This one deserves a try if you come across it.

Tap. Had this in a sampler yesterday. I didn’t take notes but remember a black color with a good sized brown head. The flavor was rather sweet chocolate and dark roasted malt with noticable alcohol that fit in well. It had a flavor like a chocolate liquer cordial. It was interesting but a bit too sweet for me and the body was a bit lighter than the Mudshark porter I consumed just before it.

Wow, I like this. Pours opaque. The chocolate is present in all aspects of the beer, but is balanced well. It would make a good dessert, for it’s a better food complement than a "drinkin’ beer."

Bottle: Poured ink black in color with an nice, creamy, chocolate ice cream colored head that left good lacing. To the nose, the aroma was sweet milk chocolate and brown sugar oatmeal. The taste was malty with a light bitterness but moderate flavors of coffee and chocolate. Full, creamy body. Great beer for after dinner.
