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.

I didn’t really like this one, but having said that, I recognise its greatness. It certainly tastes like a chocolate bar, but is this a good thing? I don’t know, I just wasn’t feeling this one, although I may very well give it a reprieve at another time.

22 oz. bottle. Pours jet black with thick brown fluffy head. Aroma is malty and roasty and only slightly of bittersweet chocolate. Toward the bottom of the glass the aroma of chocolate is more apparent. Taste is very roasty and of bittersweet chocolate. Finish is bitter and hoppy. Not too shabby.

Pours black with a dark tan head which doesn’t hang around for too long. The aroma of chocolate and expresso can be detected while pouring and is very present as you bring the glass towards you at every sip. The taste has the perfect balance of bitter chocolate, expresso and some hoppines. Unique and incredible in every way, my fave stout but I’d love to compare it next to a Victory Storm King Stout.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 This beer is absolutely amazing. Wow. Beer for dessert anyone? Nice dark color with a thick head. This beer is thick, smooth, chocolatey, with a nice bittersweet finish. I think this might be my fav beer to drink in the winter time... Re-rate: Had from bottle. This beer’s flavor comes out better on tap.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2005 Rerate 10/22/05... Poured a dark brown color with a small chocolate head.. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate.. Flavor followed suit with light roasted flavor and some chocolate and cream.. Good stout but had rated at 4.4 and don’t feel it is that good my second time around.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2005 My #1. Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. For the English among us, this tastes like Smarties (not the smarties that Americans know). Wonderful chocolate aroma, chocolate taste all the way through. The most chocolatey beer out there.

My new favorite. Rich, creamy flavor that’s not too sweet. Great maltiness with a little roasty edge. Earthiness is imparted in its aroma and palate. A truly great one from one of the best breweries on the planet.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 22oz bottle, pours a thick chocolate, with nice frothy head. Smells wonderful, like mocha. Nice rich chocolate flavor. Finishes nice and bitter. I’m a chocolate lover so this is perfect for me. It still maintains its beer shape though, it isn’t just a chocolate drink, its got some nice stout going on as well. Nice chocolate lace clings to the glass as it empties.

Bottle. A seriously nice chocolate stout. Huge chocolate aroma, smell is just delicious. Near black in color, Very nice brown head fades out and leaves a decent lace. Full bodied. Very smooth mouthfeel, silky. Taste is chocolate with just a hint of hops in the finish. Very nice.
