Bottle from Apple Valley 3, pouts a brown color with absolutely no head. Big nice dark chocolate and cream scents, taste is similar with a decent chocolate roast finish, wasn’t expecting it to be so flat. Possibly a bad bottle?---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a good two fingers of tan head on a pitch black body.
The aroma is a huge dose of chocolate with some roasted malt.
The taste is roasted malt with some bitterness, chocolate throughout.
The texture is crisper, with moderate carbonation.
The chocolate maintains a nice low profile.

Sample at Yard House in Houston. Brown-black pour with a medium tan head that diminishes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is very chocolatey with some roast malt behind it. Medium-bodied with flavors of bittersweet chocolate, coffee and hops. The finish is semi-sweet chocolate and little hops bitterness. Solid all around.

Very good chocolate stout, one of the best ones yet. Smells incredible, and very prominent chocolate taste but not too much.

I shared this beer for desert with my girlfriend on valentines day. We paired it with strawberries filled with a vanilla cream cheese frosting. The beer pours a very dark thick looking black and the head gives it some brown undertones. The aroma is strongly if chocolate reminiscent of childhood when we would have hot coco on a cold winter day. When the beer hits your tongue you pick up the chocolate and that sweet flavor. It turns to a bitter chocolate taste and finishes with a coffee after taste. A beer that is really put together well. Great to share with that special someone in front of a warm fire on a cold winter evening.

Poors a pitch black thick liquid with huge dark head. Intense aroma of burnt dark chocolate. Hoppy and alcohol tast first, then burnt chocolate. Thick. All over very, very good stout!
