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.

Draft poured @BusboysandPoets in Hyattsville, MD. Solid, dark pour. Creamy, foamy, tan head. Great chocolate, coffee nose. Bitter on the palate. Taste did not live up to nose. Dry backend.

Fatehunter (1089) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours a finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is rich chocolate, a little coffee, and roasted malt. The taste is nice and chocolaty with some mild coffee bitterness in the background to balance it out. The texture is crisp with some smoothness on the side and moderate carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

Pyrmir (2761) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
On tap at Pipes of Scotland. Black with tan head. Aroma with massive milk chocolate plus some darker chocolate notes, roasted and creamy. Taste is not as thick as the smell promised, massive chocolate, milk chocolate, light smoke with low bitterness. Decent

Teku/Nonic glass. Pitch black with great, medium lasting, beige, big head. Good lacing. Aroma is not very inviting. Aroma is chocolate, but block of chocolate not hot liquid chocolate. This is really nice and the aroma is not too strong. Taste is coco, dark chocolate, some roasted malts. Medium sweet, light to medium bitter with some very light sour elements. Thick texture, creamy, low carbonation, medium body. In overall you really feel that chocolate, it could be more sweet, beside chocolate nothing knocked me down. Worth trying.

Brenhophead (524) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2014
650mL bottle. Pours pitch black with a nice mocha head. Amazing milk chocolate aroma which follows through to the flavour with a bitter coffee backing and a slight spice/fruitiness from the hops. Nice beer.

Excellent on tap, chocolate aroma and aftertaste are exceptional. Smooth texture, smallish tan head and a hint of malty sweetness.

Malrider69 (15) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2014
An excellent stout. Pours with a well defined head and appearance is near perfect. Moderate flavour of chocolate, but not too strong to overpower the hops, as well as a slight hint of coffee.

Barreras (849) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours an ebony brown with a chocolate malt aroma. Taste is distinctly coco and roasted malt. A little too much malt overpowered the flavor. The taste wasn’t as simple and complex as expected which lent itself to being less than enjoyable. I prefer the double chocolate ...

Barwa: ciemna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana jasno brazowa, obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, stosunkowo szybko opadająca, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: czekolada do potęgi (głownie gorzka) i nieco kakao. Smak: słodowy, niezbyt pełny. Czekolada gorzka, wytrawna paloność oraz lekka goryczka, ale posmak pozostaje czekoladowy. Interesujące piwo, ale jak dla mnie zbyt deserowe. Wolę raczej nieco bardziej pełne, mocniejsze i słodsze wersje stoutów. W tym przypadku gorzki posmak nieco przytłacza odbiór. Piwo dla miłośników takowej czekolady.
