Opaque dark chocolate body with a milk chocolate head. Aroma of chocolate. Flavors of chocolate and bitter chocolate and chocolate beans and a tiny bit of coffee and cocoa powder. Even the mouth had a chocolate astringency. If your like chocolate you will love this.

Yummy. This is what I expect from a double chocolate stout. At first it was real bitter for me, but then that just smoothed out to chocolate goodness. Poured black. Had nice chocolate aroma. Didn't have much head or lacing on the glass. If you can find this, get it. - check out more at www.beeriam.com

Pours completely black. Head starts off like a chocolate foam but quickly goes away to nothing. Aroma is chocolate. Starts off chocolate and finishes with some roast flavor. Wait around and you can detect the higher alcohol.

Beaver (1614) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown black with a medium creamy brown head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass some

. The aroma is sweet bakerís chocolate with some roast and a touch of alcohol.

The flavor is a bit thin and subdued. Itís some slightly chalky, very sweet, roasted chocolate malts, with some vegetal notes. The finish is some strong roast bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly watery with soft carbonation.

Overall, it had promise as a sweet dessert beer, but it had too many flaws.

Pours near black with a minimal off white head and some spotty lacing as it makes its way down the glass. Nose is abundant chocolate. I got both milk and more bitter dark chocolate along with a bit of roasted malt. Taste adds a touch of creamy sweetness alongside a tongue smack of chocolate indulgence. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy. Not too alcoholic and certainly not cloying. This sits really well and goes down easy. Reminds me of the chocolate factory tour at Hershey.

Several times in bottles. Pours beautiful jet black with luscious head. Chocolate, dark roasted malt with expresso, sweetness balanced out with hop presence. Just a powerful mix of flavors that really work well together.

Incredible aroma and great black appearance leads to real chocolate taste with basic mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pailhead (6358) - Plymouth, 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. Itís 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. Itís still very good...but make sure you split a bomber with at least one other person.

lusikka (7649) - 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, itís almost like eating Ben & Jerryís chocolate chip cookie ice cream.
