Bottle. Cocoa, coffee malt flavor. Dark black color with moderate tan head. Sweet mocha malt flavor with a light bitter grass flavor. Moderate acidic finish. Very nice.

BBB63 (6373) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Bottle and served in NB Worthy glass: Pours almost opaque with a big creamy tan head which left excellent lace upon the glass work. The aroma is big time powdered chocolate milk! Oh... there is a bit of roast, toast, raisin, leather, tobacco, vanilla bean, coffee and very faint piney hops. The taste is more of the same, huge chocolate overtones makes any other characteristic fight for the feeble table scraps. I get a constant yeasty and earthy undertone. The good news is the finish does show off more hop bitterness and fruity tones along with a dash of coffee and molasses. The bad news is that hop character starts becoming undone and out of place has the beer warms. A good thing about the warming is that a very light Ancho Mole spicy tone is found briefly. The mouth feel is smooth and lush, slightly sticky with an light alcohol note, big astrengent hop after taste. Mostly a one trick pony is Double Chocolate Stout, they need to learn something from Brooklyn or Youngs on how to make a great Chocolate Stout. This is simply too much of extremes, too much chocolate and unbalancing hops. Very minimal existence of anything else found in between. Methinks I would have just rather had this cloying sweet, at least then it would have been a nice dessert brew.

Daytonbeer (685) - Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2010
This beer is ridiculous. It tastes like eating a moist and delicious chocolate cake. Pours jet black with brown head. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, icing, and maybe some oak. Taste is same with lots of malt and hops. Exciting on the tongue. Wow.

Cybercat (3799) - Georgia, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Comes out of the tap a dark, opaque chocolate brown with a fine-bubbled tan head. Rich, chocolaty aroma is just a little bit sweet and has a coffee undertone as well as a hint of molasses. Rich, sweet chocolate flavor makes this beer like a liquid bonbon. The flavor has smoky, coffee, toffee, hops and licorice hints as well - scrumptious! Texture is lively and quite fizzy. A must!

Hair6a11 (1419) - Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Bottle: Pour is Dark Brown/Black with dark beige head. Excellent retention, excellent lacing. I just had this one after the Young’s.Let’s face it, this one is just fantastic. Chocolate dominates, and it is luscious really. Big chocolate malts and hops bring up the rear but in a subtle fashion. I love the creamy feel, and it is a little hot.

pinkzambia (1577) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Tap @ Brewforia a while back: Inky black with a small but stiff tan head. Sweet choc aroma with a yummy candy flavor and mild roasted nuts. This is liquid Tootsie Rolls. The body is thick and creamy like a warm, chocolate milkshake. Outstanding!

PorterPounder (5970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof - on tap. Dark black as night pour, thin, khaki colored head. Aroma not as apparent as the bold flavor would suggest. Plenty of syrupy good chocolateness, alsmost as if a Hershey’s bar was melted in the glass. Hints of licorice in the back end. Mouthfeel is moderately thick. Very solid.

On draft at Capone’s last Saturday. 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, though I’d say that 8oz or so would be enough. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-28-2010

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2010 Bottle: I’m honestly having trouble finding anything wrong with this beer. This is the epitomy of chocolate stouts. Smells like a dutch chocolate factory. Sweet milk chocolate. It pours dark, black, with dark beige head. Think lacing head. Thick body. The beer is smooth with a heavy sweet milk chocolate flavour. It leaves a strong aftertaste of the sweetness behind. And definitely leaves you wanting more. If you are a lover of stouts and chocolate, this is the beer for you. Perfect.

JaBier (5178) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2010
On tap at the Blue Nile Stoutfest on 10/30/10. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Milk chocolate aroma with a bit of roast. Nice and full milk chocolate flavor (with not a lot of sweetness) with a bitter, roasty finish. Exactly what you would hope for out of this beer; has the same flavor as the regular chocolate stout, just more of it and a thicker, fuller body.
