Pours near black with a dark brown thick head. Aroma is almost pure chocolate and cocoa powder. Taste is deep rich chocolate followed by a slightly sour and mostly bitter after taste. Gets better as it warms up. Strong notes of coffee as well.

Pitch black appearance with a thin tan head and aroma of chocolate. Taste is sweet and big on chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and hints of vanilla. Finish is bitter and smooth. Great double chocolate stout from Rogue and a step up from their chocolate stout.

Bottle. Pours very syrupy. Black, with a thin to medium brown head. Strong aroma of chocolate with perhaps a little coffee. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter,with loads of chocolate and a good amount of coffee, very roasty. Full bodied, syrupy. A very dry, roasted, lingering bitter finish.

750 mL bottle from Total Wine (Triangle) in Raleigh, NC. Pours way-past-time-for-an-oil-change black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of rich dark chocolate mostly with light roasted coffee and faint floral hops in the background. Chocolate lovers will not be disappointed in the flavor of this one; rich chocolate is easily the dominating flavor. Some light smoke lingers on the tongue. Detectable alcohol warming. Medium to full bodied. A stellar beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black with a big, resilient, light brown head with substantial lacing. Aroma of sweet chocolate, coffee, caramel and a touch of pine. Taste is rich dark and milk chocolate with coffee on the back of the palate and a serious dark chocolatey bitterness throughout. Moderate thickness; not really as full as many ISs. Solid

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2012 Wow this smells like a dessert. Rich dark chocolate on the nose and not much else. Pours a think inky black with a off white foam. Flavor is full on dark chocolate with a balanced citrusy hop finish. Pretty much a bigger version of the chocolate stout like the ad says. An excellent beer for any stout lover.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black with long lasting brown head. Aroma is chocolate cake. Pure, unadulterated chocolate cake. Taste is Portillo’s chocolate cake, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, and a hint of coffee and hop bitterness to balance. Body is full, creamy, low carbonation, chocolatey slightly roasty finish. Overall, this is the best chocolate beer I’ve ever had. Seriously tastes like a chocolate cake in a glass. If you like chocolate, buy this without hesitation.

Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at a good friends house while watching the movie Gran Torino. Appearance is pitch black with very rich dark tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, espresso, a touch of hazelnut, lactose, really nice, sweet aroma. Taste is similar, can really taste the dark chocolate, a bit of lactose, very rich and decadent. Great stuff.
