Yard (45) - Senoia, Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Dark with no lacing, and a frosty off white descending head. Roasted Malts and a burnt roasted flavor. Thick but outstanding full bodied and long lasting aftertaste. One hell of a great beer.

Epi91 (18) - Tychy, POLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Pours clear black, with solid, dark head. Chocolate and oats in aroma, with a note of coffee. Itís sweet, slightly sour and roasty from dark malts. Body is medium, with medium-high carbonation. Low biterness, but it is not a con in this type of beer. Overall itís a great chocolate stout, but I slightly prefer Samuel Smithís, because of higher sweetness and still maintaing better drinkability (probably because of softer carbonation).

0.65l bottle from The George and Dragon, Barcelona - shared with my girlfriend. It pours a deep dark brown one with a really good looking dark brown chocolate top. The aroma is just like smelling a chocolate bar. donít think Iíve nosed a beer as chocolaty as this in, oh, I donít know how long. Lovely milky chocolate with mocha and cocoa powder. Kinda sweet and caramelly also, but the chocolate is just so overwhelmingly nice. The mouthfeel is light oily and the carbonation level is below average. The chocolate is almost just as present in the taste as it was in the aroma. Itís really round and surprisingly balanced this. Traces of cold coffee, fudge, cocoa nibs and some roasted malts appear. Guess you could call it a Nesquik/O-boy for adults. Scary lightdrinkable, tasty and just a plain old damned nice chocolate stout. 02.02.2013

tfredvik (1700) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2016
Black body with a large, creamy, medium brown head that stays a finger-thick layer until the glass is empty, good lacing. Sweet, malty and Intense aroma that isnít exactly very complex: itís mostly a massive sweet chocolate overdose, backed up by other roasted malty notes, some fruits in the back and hints of both lactic sugar and brown sugar. The chocolate is less sweet on the palate, itís dark and bitter with additional dry and dark roasted malt to further contrast the sweetness. Also fruits in the background, together with wood, and lactic sugar and brown sugar. Moderate to light sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish. Medium body, it actually feels a bit too light-bodied for the intensity of the aroma and flavour. Nice creamy texture, though, with a light dryness in the finish. A lovely brew indeed!
[65 cl bottle, enjoyed 16 months after BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika (RIP), Oslo]

Draft @ ōlbaren. Pours black without much foam. Aroma mostly chocolate. Light body with taste of chocolate malt and an okay deal of bitterness. Bitter aftertaste with notes of chocolate malt. Okay.

PhilosophyGuy (305) - Lodz, POLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Piana brązowa, ładna, z czasem degeneruje się obwoluty wokůł kieliszka. W aromacie dużo mlecznej czekolady, odrobina amerykańskiego chmielu, troszkę karmelowości. W smaku natomiast gorzka czekolada, trochę mlecznej, odrobina kawy, odrobina chmielu, odrobina słodůw palonych. Goryczka jest krůtka, lekka, palono-chmielowa. Profil jest raczej wytrawny. Piwo jest kremowe i gładkie. Alkohol idealnie zakamuflowany. Dobry balans między smakami. Oczekiwałem, że będzie trochę bardziej słodkie. Nagazowanie średnie w stronę niskiego.

Bottle. Opaque brownish-amber with frothy brownish head, nice lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, coffee, licorice and almonds. Sweet flavor followed by bitterness, notes of milk chocolate, roasted malt, almonds, some smokiness, coffee, somewhat dusty. Medium to full-bodied. Very nice.
