The name says it all. Like a cold hot cocoa. Beautiful head with chewy texture. Had a slight gingerbread-like aftertaste. Not overly bitter at all (as stouts go). Perfect brew for cold winters and holiday gatherings. Paired great with cigars and friends.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [22 oz. bomber] Dark black color with a big and thick brown head. Rich and potent aroma of sweet malts and lots of roasted, bittersweet chocolate. The taste is very sweet and thick. Sweet malts and roasted chocolate throughout with a very thick and chewy body and a smooth, sweet aftertaste. A little too sweet to drink all the time, but good nonetheless.

bottle. big black colour with a brown mocha head. everything about the aroma screams chocolate! WoW! Flavour has loads of bitter chocolate and satisfying roasted malt. Very smooth thick body. I couldn’t see myself drinking this too often, it’s very filling and difficult to get through an entire 660mL bottle.

Black as sin with a runaway head. Seemed very bitter to be til I realised it was a more a dark or bittersweet chocolate flavor--maybe with some mocha? Very full feel, and sits heavily--a dessert in and of itself.

Bottle. LCBO. Pitch black, big milk chocolate coloured head diminishes surprisingly fast. Big dark chocolate and cocoa aroma, slight notes of roastiness. Flavour is of dark bitter chocolate over a sweet foundation. Nice full bodied mouth feel, sits a bit heavy on the tummy. Nice beer that you don’t really want a whole bomber of to yourself.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2006 TAP and wonderful. Poured deep and dark, Aroma was toasted and roasted. Full mouth feel with choclate kick. I love the dark brew, and this was special. re-rate: 11-15-02 Damn, I failed to mention just how thick this was, you could stand a knife in it. Very chocolate, bitter and dark.

JadoreBlanche (114) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2004
Bottle- A brown body with a medium sized foamy almost black head. Smells hoppy, with a strong chocolae accent. Taste is strong hops, with a bitter chocolate flavour. Bitter chocolate aftertaste. Easy to drink, a very nice dessert beer. Mmmmmm I love chocolate!

madsberg (10608) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2004
Bottled: Pitch black coloured. Chocolate brown huge head. Aroma is pure chocolate. Amazing. Can’t really find any other scent, but its quite delicious. Flavour is chocolate again. In the beginning its quite delicious, but in the long run it gets a bit cloying and sweet. Too sweet for me. Mouthfeel is creamy. There is some vague hops notes, and a light bitterness in the end. This is quite good in small doses, but drinking ½ of a bomber was too much for me. Thanks to Bück Dich for trading me this.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2004
Black with a small tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malts and chocolate. You can really taste the chocolate in this beer. Nice roasted malt flavor with a background of dark chocolate. Sweet, but not overly so. Dries somewhat on the finish thanks to a decent hop bitterness. Excellent.

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2004
Pitch black pour. Rather long-lasting big tan head. Rich malty aroma reminiscent of chocolate milk, smarties, vanilla. Definitely reminds me of smarties... Gets a bit too tart (citric and lactic) to be extremely enjoyable to me, but as far as sweet stouts go, I’ve rarely encountered better. I guess I’d just love it more would another less citric hop replace those astringent cascades. Well made nutty bitter finish counters the heavy sweetness, although it tastes more like bitter black chocolate. Gets roastier and roastier as it warms, like burnt chocolate. Good full body, oatmealish, velvety.
