Ebony in color with a rich creamy head. The mellow flavor of oats, chocolate malts, and real chocolate are balanced perfectly with the right amount of hops for a bittersweet finish. Chocolate Stout is brewed with 10 ingredients: Northwest Harrington and Klages, Crystal 135-165 and Beeston Chocolate Malts, Cascade Hops, Rolled Oats and Roasted Barley, Natural Chocolate Flavor, Free Range Coastal Waters and PacMan Yeast.

On tap @ Buckeye Brewing Co: Very dark opaque brown w/ a lasting tan head. This beer is like smelling Nestle tollhouse chocolate chips! Some caramel, some espresso notes, but itís all about the chocolate in this one. Low fruitiness. Very chocolatey flavor w/ some dark grain & hop bitterness. Light roastiness in the finish and has a light hop flavor in the aftertaste. Also has hints of caramel, but again, chocolate dominates. Higher medium carbonation(possibly from being on tap), prickly m/f, medium body and smooth after it warms. Sort of 1dimensional in the fact that the dominant flavor and aroma is chocolate. It pretty much masks a lot of the other malts and grains that were probably used.

Aroma: dark and chocolatey Appearance: pitch black with a little head thats very dark. flavor profile: dark chocolate/nutty with a little bittersweet chocolate. Very creamy mouthfeel with a smooth texture. Overall: For one claiming to be a chocolate stout I didnít find much chocolate in it. Still, not a bad stout

The darkest beer Iíve ever had, completely opaque with a thick dark brown head. Intense, heady, chocolatey aroma. There is a strong musty, dusty smell along with sweet toffee. Flavour is mostly bitter chocolate that lasts into the roasty finish. Incredibly creamy mouthfeel, velvety texture. Finish manages to balance hoppy bitterness, roastiness, and chocolate bitterness. Very tasty.

Deep black color with a thin light brown head. Aroma of chocolate and biscuity malt. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malt and toasted bread. Lasting bitter finish. Full body, powdery texture. It has the distinct signature of a Rogue stout and i like it !

This wonder of a beer (no not wunderbier....wonder of a beer) pours a black as night black color with a thick puffy orange and dark brown head littering my glass. Heavy degrees of carbonation here..a surprising amount. The aroma is lit obviously with heavy chocolate, wood, espresso, cocoa, vanilla and other sweet scents. The flavor is much of the same with heavy dry and gritty chocolates balanced with a nice meld of hops in the finish to end bitter and dry. Some sweet vanillas and chocolate grains finish this heavily carbonated beer as well. Good thick mouthfeel, well rounded, very very dry, but that was to be expected. Nicely done chocolate stout!

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2004 black body with just a little red at the edge of the glass. cascading head to a dark tan color, very creamy and foamy. long lasting with thick layers of lacing. very sweet chocolate malt nose, like a chocolate covered sugar wafer! also sweet chocolate and malt flavor. medium mouthfeel and lively to mild carbonation. bitter and dry hop taste second, then dissapearing finish and no aftertaste. kind of porter-like. very drinkable and not a problem to finish the bomber to myself.

Not as good as the hazelnut, but a very good beer. Not as heavy on the chocolate as I would have liked, but still satisfying.

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.

zach8270 (3913) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2004
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.
