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.

wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2008
black with a great lasting fluffy dark tan head. great lacing. Rich cream and chocolate heavy mocha aroma. really just a beautiful round mouthwatering aroma. bitter chocolate coffee flavor with a hint of sweet cream. not quite as round or balanced as the aroma but still good. bitter lasting coffee chocolate finish big roasted malt flavor...almost burnt flavor but not quite. full body creamy mouth feel. very nice. some things like the finish seem a bit off but overall a very nice stout.

swannycellars (33) - Swanbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2015
Bottle from swanbourne. Deep brown pour with beige head. Lots of vanilla and milk choc on the nose. Flavour is choc as expected but quite a firm bitterness and boozy finish. Seemed a bit out of whack. Still ok

Pours a jet black color with a foamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roast. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate. Overall pretty good, though the bitterness is a bit harsh.

Bosskie (555) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2015
Pitch black beer with a big foamy brownish head. Smell is sour fruitiness and milk chocolate. Leather, maybe some nuts, but mainly lots of chocolate. Taste is watery first but then gets overwhelmed by milk chocolate. Not sweet, just very creamy oily and smooth chocolate taste. With a touch of mineral. Quite smart.

androman (826) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
On tap at beertemple, amsterdam. Body is pitch black, head is big, brownish, creamy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Nose is cocoa, flavor is chocolate, mild coffee, brown sugar. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting dark chocolate, later quite hoppy as well. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Excellent dessert beer, tons of chocolate, not too sweet, great one.

Pours a deep dark brown with a khaki head from a bottle. Aroma of dark chocolate, flavor of dark chocolate, floral, hint of black coffee, some caramel notes, bittersweet. A little thin in the mouth. Good beer.

alteregoo (249) - POLAND - APR 26, 2015
Piwo ładnie prezentuje się w szkle, bujna drobna piana oblepiająca szkło. Z butelki czuć mleczną czekoladę, kakao i kawę wiedeńską. Po przelaniu aromat czekolady Milka i czekolady Lindt przenikają się sprawiając troszkę mdlące odczucie. W smaku ciekawie - nie jest sodko, dość treściwie, lekko popiołowo, szorstko, nieduże drobne nasycenie. Bazą smakową oczywiście deserowa szwajcarska czekolada, pozbawiona zbędnego cukru czy kwaskowatości - czysty czekoladowo-kakaowy smak, któremu towarzyszy delikatna paloność, kawa zbożowa i wyraźna ziołowo-żywiczna goryczka od chmielu Cascade. W afterteasie doszukać się można nawet zakamuflowanych owoców tropikalnych i rodzynek. Alkohol niewyczuwalny. Choć jest to Sweet Stout, to trzeba zaznaczyć, że świetnie zbalansowany i idący w kierunku wytrawności, bardziej pijalny niż zalepiający.

Fashawn (382) - Montesarchio, ITALY - APR 26, 2015
Ottima. Odore di cacao in polvere e cannela,pulito ma intensissimo e bellissimo. Cacao dolce in bocca.che tende al fondente sul finale,con sentori di orzo tostato. Beverina e quasi liscia,una delle stout più buone mai bevute.
