KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2013
750ml Bottle. The pour was a thick deep dark black with a large (2-3 finger) medium cocoa brown creamy head that reduced slowly, down to a thick puddled film with a medium collar and produced absolutely great drippy sticky lacing. The aroma right up front was all about the chocolate with a bold roasted malt and a heavy doughy yeast along with notes of chocolate of course (dark and milk), roasted coffee and a slight hint of vanilla that was just barely noticeable. The taste was really fantastic with a nice thick maltiness and a milk chocolate sweetness from the get go, becoming a just tad bitter with a mild coffee presence and a big dose of bitter chocolate towards the finish. The flavor lasted for an extremly long time following the swallow, with the chocolate taste fading away and leaving behind a mild bitter roastiness to linger for a while longer. Mouthfeel was full in body with an exceptionally creamy texure and a soft carbonation. Overall this is one fantastic tasting brew!! It possesses a ton of roasty chocolate flavor along with a mild smooth bitterness, which together does an awesome job of totally concealing the high ABV, making this a very easy to drink and extremely enjoyable brew...

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours a deep brown with a creamy tan head. Deep roasty aroma with pronounced chocolate notes. Silky mouthfeel. Flavor is malt, coffee, and of course bitter chocolate. Chocolate is strong without being cloying. An excellent stout overall.

chinchill (2769) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Growler. Pours nearly black with reddish-brown edges. Very little head and a little bit of spotty lacing (growler). Big aroma of dark malts, dark bread and dark chocolate. Flavor follows, but with hints of coffee and light smoke that linger into the aftertaste. Mildly sweet up front and mildly bitter in the finish. Hops mainly contribute some bittering. High ABV is fairly well hidden. Full body with light carbonation.

dutchtuga (146) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2013
Pours very black, nice full creamy brown head. Leaves a great chocolate taste from beginning to end. With the Southern Tier Choklat the best chocolate stout.

kermis (6571) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2012
Draft at Beer Temple. Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is awesome but by no means complex, simply massive milk chocolate. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very nice in small quantities.

On tap at rogue Newport - nice frothy head. Think creamy hot chocolate! Perfect stout to finish the meal with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Euston Tap. Opaque black - brown beer, little tan head. Palate is silky smooth with nice fine carbonation. Mild minerals and errr yeah - chocolate! Dark chocolate, chocolate gateux cream and chocolate wafers. Creamy dark chocolate! Finishes smooth and silky with a little carbonated nip. Slightly maltesers aftertaste. Pretty bloody good. I bolted this one!

cantankerous (9) - - DEC 26, 2012 does not count
A: Wow, this looks inviting. Pours absolutely jet black with no light peeking through whatsoever. Rocky khaki to light brown head leaving beautiful, elegant lacing on its way down. S: Dark fruits (plum, blackberry), baker’s chocolate, caramel and toffee, a hint of coffee grinds. T: Mimics the nose--dark fruits, mostly plum, with a healthily competing dark chocolate kick and a little punch of espresso bitterness that lingers on the finish. M: Slightly less full-bodied than the appearance and aroma would suggest but nice and smooth.

Delicious. Rich and chocolaty taste as you’d expect, with a bitterness and coffee on the finish.
