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.

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 (11405) - 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 (6174) - 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.

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - OCT 14, 2004
Drank this with some wonderful dark chocolate. Opaque black with a moderate tan head. The aroma is very roasty with vague hints of chocolatey goodness. The chocolate becomes increasingly assertive as the beer warms. The roast prominent when cold correspondingly fades. Finishes with a very enjoyable lingering bitterness.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Bottle. Inky shiny black pour with a deep brown thick head. Flavor wise: okay, the chocolate is there. The bitter is there. What else? Well, not much. but that isn’t a bad thing. Big up front flavor that tastes like chocolat icing. Nice. Good bitterness with a big fat slap of chocolate malt. This is good. I dig this beer.

Kevin (2192) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 8, 2004
bottle. black with a brown fat head. slightly bitter chocolate aroma.watered down bitter chocolate flavor also. leaves an oily mouthfeel. chocolate flavors dominate and linger. the bitterness is too strong in this and takes away from the enjoyment.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Deep black motor oil in color and leaves a thin brownish head. Smell is delicious, roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate. Bittersweet chocolate and roasty malt flavor. Spicy hop flavor also present. Full bodied palate and warming as it goes down. Thick coating on the throat. This is a really good beer to be enjoyed after a nice meal.
