The aroma, quite simply, is pure chocolate. Great. Flavours are good too, very smooth chocolate, sweet, earthy and creamy. Some roast malts as expected. Good alcohol vapours on the finish. I prefer Youngs Double Choc - but this is still fine.

nice and black with a tan head and some nice lacing. Chocolatey, sweet malty aroma. Strong chocolate flavor, with a hint of coffee and roasted malt and nice and sweet. This is a freakin good beer, but probably best for an after dinner thing.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2003 I'm so glad I just found this close to my house. For pure enjoyment, this gets 5 out 5 stars. I friend brought some over last week for my birthday party, and I was in love from first sip. It smells like choclate milk. It tastes like chocolate espresso with cream. Mouthful is thick and creamy. Initial malty chocolatey sweetness followed by bitter, burnt aftertaste. Kind of like a Young's Double Chocolate Stout on steroids.

A dark beer but thinner than most stouts with a deep vanilla aroma. Very bitter flavour with slight after hints of chocolate. A decent chocolate stout but nothing more.

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2003
A black beer with a fine dark brown head. The aroma is powerful sweet and dominated by chocolate. The flavor has a soft sweet start, then the chocolate hits you and it ends on a bitter chocolate note combined with sweetness. It tastes just as the best bitter chocolates I've had. A great beer.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Black as tar color,nice small but creamy brown head that lasted for quite awhile.The first whiff of this brew is astonishingly hops,with a mild fruit hint and the chocolate comes in last place.The malty aroma is quite subdued and faint,but there is definately a sweet qualitity coming through.It might just be that it's still a little colder then it should be for optimum aroma.Definately warmed up enough now,The chocolate comes through very loud and clear almost to the point of drinking nestle quick(chocolate of course)the hops aren't as prolific as they where in the aroma and there is no fruit in this that i can make out.The after taste is what else but chocolate with a slight bitter side to it and maybe some hops but it's hard to say with such an overwhelming amount of chocolate in the way it manages to stay quite hidden.I've never been a real big chocolate fan but this is something i could definately drink a lot of.It very well done and even though one sided IMO it is quite good.Well worth trying .

Near black in color with a few small off white floaties in the lower half of the glass. Fine instant coffee like lid of bubbles. Loads of chocolate aroma. Smoother feel with with chocolate liqueur flavors. Flavors taste to synthetic to me.

Coffee and choclate overpower the nose. Taste is along the same lines. Perfect bitter finish.

Pours a shadowy dark deep brown with a large dark beige head. Great lacing. Aroma has nuts, chocolate and malt. Interesting taste, the chocolate is definitely there.
