4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett. 9.0%. Very dark, clear, cola colour. Thin, tan head. Chocolate milkshake. Dark chocolate. Dried fruit. Caramel. Vanilla. Booze. Taste is dry. Light sweet. Light bitter. Palate is surprisingly airy. Smooth, too. Finish is dry, chocolatey sweet, with light, nutty bitterness. Really good, and a lot more restrained than I expected. So glad this is a huge bottle...

Black pour with a thick brown head. Strong chocolate aroma. Sweet chocolate flavour with some slight coffee notes as well. Thick texture to it but a very nice chocolate stout.

Had this beer very early on in my craft beer quest and would give it a 4.5 if possible. A very good beer that gives off wonderful aromas of chocolate! A great desert beer.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a black color with a creamy dark khaki head that leaves lots of lacing down the glass. the aroma is overwhelming amounts of chocolate. the taste initially was sweet chocolate but as it warmed up on me it turned into a more bitter dark chocolate. the beer is smooth for the high abv. there is also some coffee notes in this and some roasted malts but mostly chocolate. this beer would be a perfect desert beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Issaquah Brewhouse. Pours a dark black color with a brown hue that had a small tan head that leaves decent lacing. Smells of chocolate, caramel and mild espresso. Tastes of mostly chocolate with a hint of Carmel and coffee. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with great carbonation. Great beer. One of the best chocolate stouts I've had.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
black with a tan head; chocloaty aroma with hints of roasted malt; a smooth beer (deceptively smooth at 9%abv) with LOTS of chocolate flavor with notes of roasted malt, coffee and alcohol; but the dominant flavor is chocolate; an excellent desert beer

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of chocolate, hard caramel candy, freshly cut oak, and bow rosin
Appearance in fantastic thick blackness almost like Surly Darkness but with a smaller head
Taste is beautiful with complements of the aroma adding a nice bitterness, licorice, and espresso
Palate is nice and thick and creamy
One of my favorite beers uo there with Surly darkness and stone sublimely self righteous
