Really nice dark chocolate flavor. Seemed overpowering at first; but once the beer warmed up a little, the malt flavors came through, and brought more balance.

fdomig (654) - München, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2016
650ml bottle at home in Munich with goflo and claudi, courtesy of Claudi. Aroma is dark chocolate, light caramel, toffee. Amazing. Appearance is black with a dark brown, thick foam. Taste is sweet and light bitter. Dry and perfectly balanced with a soft to medium strong carbonation. Just right. Impressive.

King_Alex_II (916) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 2, 2016
Black color with brown foam layer. The smell is an absolutely delightful sweetish mild chocolate aroma. The taste is almost harsh and aggressive compared to the smell. The taste is sweet, has chocolate and roasted coffee bean aromas and a decent, but still almost too strong, carbonation. Compared to the smell and aftertaste, this beer seems nearly watery, despite its rich flavors. The aftertaste is mild with a strong but calm chocolate finish and hints of roasted coffee beans.

Aggiebob (517) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle: Poured into a shaker glass, it was an opaque brown with a tall tan head. The aroma was chocolate malt. The taste was semi-sweet and it had a medium body and a creamy mouth feel.

petewhitley (459) - Nagoya, JAPAN - JAN 11, 2016
coffee, chocolate, black, tan foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, cream. Wow, incredible dark chocolate aroma, hints of coffee. Dark black. Head looks oddly a bit like oil and water; curious separation going on. Velvet chocolate at first, transitioning into a slight bitterness, ends as soft as a pillow. Sweet but not cloyingly so. Very, very well done. If I was a choco-alcoholic I would inject this into my veins.

MarkoNm (1986) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 6, 2016
Pours a pitch black color, topped with a decently sized head, dark beige color. Strong sweet chocolate aroma, lots of cocoa in there as well. Taste is dominated by chocolate notes, some sweet and some dark bittery chocolate feel. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Semi full body, actually quite on the light side. Mild roasty aftertaste, but very lasting. Nice, especially aroma is amazing.

Huge chocolate nose. Nice body carries through to a good chocolate finish. Solid stout.
