4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a jet black color with a dark brown head. The aroma is of dark chocolate with light notes of coffee. The flavor is of semi sweet chocolate with notes of roasted malt. The body is full with a bitter aftertaste. Overall a very good beer.

Black pour, moderate tan head, good lace/retention. Aroma is chocolate malt and chocolate itself with lesser notes of roast, caramel, and a touch of darker fruit. Chocolate flavor obviously dominates with a medium to full body.

Dark, dark beer, dark bthick brown head. Looks like you’re drinking jet fuel. Leaves a bittersweet taste in the back of you’re throat.

Black pour with a thick brown head. Chocolate aroma with a sweet chocolate taste. Weird off taste that was hard to identify... Decent finish with low carbonation. Great chocolate flavor overall, decent stout.

750ml bottle from De Molen Beershop
Pours pitch black with a thick brown head. Aroma of chocolate malts, roastiness, cocoa, vanilla, dark chocolate and ash. Taste is smooth, sweetish and milky with notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, cocoa, hints of syrup and hops. Finish is roasty, sweetish and chocolatey with notes of vanilla and cocoa. Quite sweet but complex chocolate stout.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Wow, without actually checking, I believe this has been my biggest disappointment among the "100%-ers" so far. Pour is opaque black, large dark brown head, dissipates fairly quickly and leaves decent enough lacing. So far so good. Aroma is strong chocolate malt, very chocolatey, coming off as fakish and overbearing. Flavor is superchocolate; a mix of chocolate malt flavors and that waxy stuff that you get in cheap Easter candy. Quite sweet initially, sickly in fact, fading to quite sharply bitter on the finish, but they don’t show up at the same time, so the effect is again offputting. Medium body, actually a bit watery for the best of style. Wow. Either I got a shit bottle or this beer does not belong in the elite ranks.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque very dark brown with a dark mocha colored head. I’d like to say this beer smells like anything but chocolate, but I can’t. Milk chocolate. Moderately thick and astringent mouthfeel with a bit of a scrubby texture. Chocolate flavor with a touch of clove and some bitterness.
