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.

hawthorne00 (2469) - Melbourne, - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle, 13C. Black with a large tan head that collapses to an inch. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, light roasted malt, hints of cardamon and cloves. Silky mouthfeel. Plenty of good chocolate and vanilla but not that sweet, roasted barley rather than malt (but not that much) balancing bitterness with a touch of orange and spices that match well. Bitterness and a slight astringency at the end. Good chocolate, texture and balance - thatís about it, but thatís fine.

Fin og rund kaffe og sjokolade. Litt tørrende sot. God svak aroma av rosinish i tillegg til kaffen. Rund finish, over 40

650mL bottle BB 01/08/14 Looks good; jet black body small tan head. Nice aroma; milk coffee, dark chocolate - in a good way, not artificial - toasted nuts & cereals, caramel, with a generous helping of citrusy hop. Full body, smooth texture bit oily, moderately low carbonation. Palate starts with some sweet chocolate (70% cocoa-like), touch of caramel & nuttiness, then dries out with leafy, resiny hop, citrus rind and a bold lingering bitterness. Tasty stuff, additional chocolate flavour noticable, but not overdone.

Voodoo (320) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Pours a deep, dark brown with a large creamy tan head which lingers a bit.........aroma is chocolate, raisins (Chunky bar?) ........taste is rich chocolate, coffee aftertaste, dates but far too thin for the amount of flavor. Needs mouthfeel, body, chewiness whatever you want to call it....far too much flavor to be so thin.

Abrakarl (323) - SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2014
Thought it would be closer to a imperial stout, but this one lacks the full, thick richness of a good RIS. Chocolate and some coco. Thin palate and very bitter. Should not be their highest ranking beer.

Willsaar (16) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2014
This isnít a. Bad beer, but itís not a great beer either. It pours a deep silky black with a thick tan head. The aroma is very straight forward- lots of chocolate notes with subtle smoke. This smokiness carries through in the taste, as does the chocolate. Initially very sweet, with a creamy mouthfeel. The fi ish is weird though with a hoppy bitterness that I donít get. One minute Iím tasting yummy chocolatey goodness and then this weird bitterness?? Sort of strange. But up to the finish this is a great beer. I wish theyíd tweet it a bit and fix the finish,
