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.

My friends kept telling me to try this but I couldn’t find it anywhere. So I leapt in joy when I saw this in a small liquor store in Cape May, despite the extortionate price. Perhaps the expectation got to me. I mean it wasn’t bad. Big coffee, chocolate and oat notes, with a decent bitter finish. But it tasted blander than most stouts, was too strong, and goddammit not chcolately enough. Get Young’s Double Chocolate Stout instead.

Schwarz. Geruch nach Schokolade, dazu leicht nach Röstgerste. Im Geschmack dann leicht restsüß. Zum Ende bitter, aber ausgewogen (Flasche 2m über MHD). Wie zartbitterschokolade.

Douce, légèrement amer, assez fluide, pas très onctueuse mais pleine d’arômes et saveurs : agrumes, épices, chocolat, notes végétales. Bien balancée et subtile.

650ml bottle. Deep brown/black colour with a nice beige head. Chocolate, sweet, liquorice and oat in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium to full body. Taste is bitter with some sweet chocolate notes. Long dry, bitter and light astringent finish. Overall, a very good beer.

This is a great stout. Thick and smooth, almost like a milkshake. Aroma is fabulous.

Dark chocolate mainly, sweet, more chocolate.

Pitch black beer with a small off-white head.

Starts undefined sweet, then the sweet chocolate hits. Ends in dark slightly bitter chocolate.

Bottled. Poured into snifter. This is an amazing stout. Big flavors of dark chocolate on the front, back, and everywhere in between. Like eating a savory dark chocolate bar. Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SkillsFactory (280) - ITALY - OCT 10, 2015
Marrone scura, praticamente nera, schiuma nocciola di buona persistenza. Abbastanza acida, aroma di caffè e cacao, leggero aroma di frutti rossi, zucchero. Al palato sempre acida, prevale il caffè tostato sul cacao amaro, con una bella coda amaricante tostata. Corpo medio leggero, poco carbonata, oleosa.
