Pailhead (5066) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy cocoa, milk chocolate, faint maple syrup, and the slightest touch of espresso. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a two finger tan head that fades to a thick film within a minute or so. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a moderate cocoa and light milk chocolate. The finish has light-moderate maple syrup with a touches of smoke and roasted coffee. It’s medium-full bodied with with mild carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I generally like the maple syrup quality that shows up in some Imperial Stouts, but the combination with with the moderate-heavy cocoa makes a 22oz bottle a bit much to consume on my own. 12oz bottles would be an ideal serving size. It’s still very good...but make sure you split a bomber with at least one other person.

lusikka (6530) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2012
Draught @ Rogue Ales Public House, San Francisco. Rated on 17.10.2012.
Pours a pitch black colour with a small, beige, creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts and really strong chocolate chip cookies. Flavour of roasted malts, chocolate chip cookies, milk chocolate, grass and floral hops. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a long, warming, strong malty finish with chocolate. Yum yum, it’s almost like eating Ben & Jerry’s chocolate chip cookie ice cream.

KatSassafrass (6) - Nevada, USA - OCT 15, 2012 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2012 Poured from bottle at home. Thick and dark. Chocolaty and coffee tasting but not overpoweringly so. Reminds me of eating a few dark chocolate covered espresso beans. Tried drinking at room temp and refrigerated... Best at room temp...

Dark black. Thin tan head. Coffee and chocolate. Somewhat milky but not much. Some spices I can’t place. Excellent balance. Not quite double in chocolate though.

OldGrowth (2755) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2012
bottle from Triangle Wine. Good aroma, sweet. Chocolate, little hazelnut. Dark brown color, small head, though I poured rather slow. sweet flavor. medium body, creamy smooth mouthfeel, sweet bitter finish. Pretty good, nice chocolate brew. all chocolate, not anything else, all chocolate in aroma, flavor. Kind of lighter in mouthfeel than I was thinking it would be.

Thisis12ptfont (863) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Deep aromas of raisins, molasses, cocoa and some toffee. Blackish brown in color with no foam at all. Complex flavoring with tons of chocolate and fudge overtones. Other notes of raisins, expresso, mocha and burnt molasses. Overall, this is a well done, chocolate filled stout. Surprisingly light bodied. I’d give this an A rating.

dfinney23 (1839) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Pours dark and oily with a beautiful caramel-colored head. Aroma of cocoa and roasted malt. Taste is bitter dark chocolate, malt and a hint of vanilla. Delicious!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a black color with a huge creamy dark tan head that lingered forever and left great lacing. The aroma was sweet cocoa, vanilla, marshmallow and chocolate syrup. The flavor was sweet and tangy vanilla, marshmallow,cream and strong cocoa. Very long sweet cocoa, marshmallow and vanilla finish. Thick, full and creamy body. The alcohol was very well hidden. Excellent.

Got lucky to try this bottle at Big Beers and Barley Wines. I had no idea this was in such limited release. Holy cow, this is like drinking melted chocolate spiked with a little vanilla. Awesome. Super dark and rich.
