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.

Gangstergafje (684) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
The beer has a beautiful dark appearance. The color of the beer is a nice dark brown, with a slightly ruby red glow. The beer pours a nice soft creamy foam, with a yellowish color. The bulk of the foam collapses, to leave almost nothing behind. The smell is very nice. There is a good sweet chocolate aroma, combined with some nice roasted aromas. It reminds me of the Porterhouse Chocolate Truffle Stout. All those nice dark bitter tones, balanced out by the sweetness of the chocolate, delicious. There are also some nice fresh hop tones in the smell. The taste of the beer is slightly less. There is less of the chocolate deliciousness. There are some nice roasty bitter tones and a fresh fruity hop flavor. The aftertaste is nice and bitter. All in all, a delicious stout, like it should be. A good preparation for my trip to Dublin

Fisler (397) - Bamberg, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2016
Ein Stout kann im Glas kaum was verkehrt machen. Schön hier: Der leicht braune Schaum, erinnert gleich an Luftschokolade. Und die riecht man auch, superlecker. Reingebissen, klar, ein Stout, und mit dem Abgang kommt die Schoki, leckerleckerlecker, etwas bitter, dann süß, megasüffig. Gigantisches Dessert-Bier!

Mediocre foam. Chocolate, duh. Espresso. Watery. Slightly roasted. Meh. Choco-too-late-not-for-the-second-round.
