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.

Pretty good, not my favourite. I miss a nice body but it’s really drinkeble and enjoyable. I like the roasted barley and the chocolat. Rogue rules but this ain’t my cup of tea.

Intense mocca pie... great... more darker chocolat tones in the back... light body, a bit watery.. roasted finish with more chocolat... soft carbs... quickly fading head... sweet n a bit bitter, lacks some sweetness?

Avalanche de chocolat sans écoeurer. Assez légère et facile à boire. Bonne stout mais pas si exceptionelle que ca.

Shared at my Summer Plunder Tasting by Kery. A dark cola pour which is black with ruby highlights. 5% great cocoa nib aroma very smooth. Medium bodied with a bitter dark cacao flavor and some sweet vanilla notes. A nice solid chocolate stout.

Majek (333) - Ząbki, POLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Totally black with thick beige head. Nice lacing. Strong aroma of sweet chocolate, hint of vanilla and mocha. Good at nose, but taste is even better! Lots of chocolate, coffee with milk and vanilla background. Texture is oily. Full body. Low carbonation. Awesome stout, one of the best I’ve drank.

I wanted more than I got. The aroma is amazing, but aside from that I thought this let me down somehow. It’s not bad, it’s just not good.

Alengrin (1742) - BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2014
Chocolate stout with thick, beige, creamy head and dark mahogany colour, approaching black. Aroma strongly dominated by cocoa powder, toffee and chocolate bars, some coffee and dark fruits as well; very chocolatey taste, like a fluid bar of bitter chocolate, powdery, soft mouthfeel, oats and cocoa powder, sweetish and yeasty but assertively roasted bitter in the end with leafy hops. Great if you like chocolate.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkelbraunes fast schwarzes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch intensiv schokoladig, röstmalzig, Vanille. Geschmack röstmalzig, Schokolade, Vanillee, leicht würzig.
