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.

Pours black w/ a dark brown head. Smells like "Quik" fake chocolate with a slight flowery bouquet and maybe some cherry notes. First taste tasted like it smelt...Fake, cheap chocolate. Nice rich malt flavour finishing with a slight flavour of roasted coffee. Palate... leaves flavour of roasted malts and that bad taste of chocolate again. If you can overlook the Quik flavour this stout isn't too bad but I couldn't. This doesn't even come close to something like a Youngs Double Choc Stout.

THis beer had an amazing chocolate mocha aroma. The chocolate taste was VERY sweet. I just couldn't handle drinking more than about 6 ounces. It was sweet to the point of almost making me feel a little sick.

Poured black with a fine tan colored head and excellent lacing. Fantastic aroma-Cascade, sweet milk chocolate, vanilla and pipe tobacco notes. Hearty in body with a rich chocolate flavor and a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish.

egajdzis (5576) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Poured an opaque black color with a medium sized tan head and some lacing on the edges of the glass. Sweet chocolate blunt wrap aroma. Nice full chocolate taste with some roasted malt. Although I gave the palate a 4, I was being generous. The chocolate certainly was there, but it was not as rich as I hoped for.

This is a great stout, dark/dense body, lightly laced dark tan head, aroma of roasted expresso beans and chocolate, thick mouthfeel, dark chocolate flavor, hints of other roasted notes, a great, consistantly good stout for sure.

Started off with an amazing aroma, and poured a beautiful mahogany. But I was put off by the very bitter chocolate taste. Something just didn't seem right with this. Could have been a bad bottle as the other reviews show it much better.

Hop nose at first that gives way to chocolate. Taste was chocolate bars with some perfumed hops swirling around. i did not care for such an assertive hop flavor in this, however it mellows out later. finishes with chocolate and leaves a slight hop residue.

This beer poor with a black body and a light brown head. Significant lacing exits. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Nice flavor as the Chocolate is not overpowering but makes a significant presence. Typical stout malt and initial sweetness also present and a nice bitterness in the finish. A nice beer albeit not in my favorite style. Cheers

Very dark brown with a somewhat dark tan head. The aroma is a wonderful blend of chocolate, coffee, and a very faint hop aroma. The flavor largely consists of the chocolate mentioned in the name but there are coffee flavors as well. The roasted flavor stays in the mouth for awhile and never goes sour.
