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.

Nice aroma and wonderful bitter chocolate flavor. Perfect chocolate color. It seemed like it would go well with whipped cream, but it didn't.

The hard parts of this beer are the hops and carbonation and they keep me from being able to enjoy the mixture of bitters(roast and chocoalte)and sweets. Decent enough stout and so good quality, but I'm not a fan.

This is the most chocolatey beer I have ever had! I sampled a little chocolate with it. I think my chocolate was too cheap, it didn't compliment very well. Dark black-brown that will not let the light through. Dark brown head and a bitter sweet finish. With a chocolatey nose to it. All make this stout great. Everything compliments each other quite well. By far one of the better brews I have had. Excellent job.

The most chocolatey of any brew I've had yet, as if they just dropped in a big bar prior to my opening of the bottle. Fat, foamy, mousse-like head that dried itself to the sides of the glass and laced right down to the bottom. Bitter bakers chocolate taste mixes with the ending hops bitterness perfectly. Notes of burnt coffee and oatmeal there to greet you also. Great beer to serve with dessert!!

Dark black w/ creamy coffee coloured head. Chocolate nose. Full bodied. Earthy roasted malt character & strong bitter chocolate flavours give way to dry, assertive finish.

Black colour. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee. Tastes of chocolate, mocha coffee, very creamy and bitter. Finishes malty, chocolaty with a long bitterness.

Many flavors, but I was surprised at how much it does taste like chocolate. Pours very dark with a good sized creamy brown head. Not as acidicly bitter as some sweet stouts, but the high hops content is noticable in the end. Tops in the chocolate stouts.

Thick pour, very dark in color, dark brown head... a deep roasted chocolate taste. Long lasting, bitter, bakerís chocolate aftertaste. Would go really well with a nice cavendish tobacco.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2013 Draft & bottle, multiple times - Pours a rich dark brown with a light brown head, not very long lasting. Smells of caramel? First taste on my tongue was mild and slightly sweet. Midway through the mouthfull the richness of the stout makes its entrance, but by the end of the drink, your mouth is punched by the fist of sour. Iím re-rating it now, because Iíve feel in love with it. The semi-sweet richness in both the drink and the finish is such a wonderful feeling. Drink this with a chocolate bar and youíll love it. Smokey, rich, not too sweet, with what I would think is a fairly complex finish consisting of subtle roasted malts, big chocolate malts, and some semi-sour baking chocolate characteristics. One of my favorites now.

Had this on draft at the Grey Lodge in Phila. Now this is a stout!! Nice and chunky with a ton of flavor.
