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.

rougeau13 (2017) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2011
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.

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.

Inky black pour, dark head lingers quite a while. Chocolate and cherries and a bit of wood fire on the nose. Lots of dark chocolate flavor, a mouthfeel similar to a good espresso, but not as bright. Lingers on the tongue a while. I really like this one.
