Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Deep, deep brown color with dark ruby highlights... No head, even with a hard-pour, only a small, khaki tinted ring. Aroma has notes of creamy, sweet chocolate syrup, light roasted malt, & a bit of dark fruit-y tartness, almost like tart raspberry or red grape... Astringent. Thin mouth feel... Solid cocoa taste up front, milk chocolates, sweet & savory leading to ashy hops & mild roast in the finish. Loses the sour fruitiness from the aroma, but is a fairly bland one-trick pony in the end. Not bad, but forgettable.

black body with red highlights, no head, slightly sour aroma / chocolate malts, flavor is overpowered by sourness - maybe this is just a really old bottle? There’s no decipherable date stamp, so who knows... I’ve got a feeling that this beer will be the cause of some gnarly gas tomorrow

Bottle. Pours a dark brown. Aroma and taste are sweet chocolate; a bit too much sweetness.

tmoreau (3053) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Shared 12 oz. bottle labeled with the yellow barn & red ribbon, poured to small snifters showing a black/brown color, with ruby highlighting, brownish tan head foam that reduced quickly to a ring & film, and light spots of lacing. The nose was cocoa, but also hints of Slim Jim, light soy, and a touch of cardboard. Light bodied, with fair carbonation, the flavor was more agreeable, with subtle roastiness & cocoa, mellowed by a touch of silkiness to the mouthfeel. A bit past it’s prime.

Bottle pour at home, Sent to me from Chicago by a friend. Black pour, no head. Roasted coco and coffee aroma, slight bitter taste, you taste a little chocolate in the finish. Solid stout enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Deep brown almost black with a deep brown head. Aroma is typical of a stout but the taste as the name suggests has great chocolate flavor. Good blend with coffee flavor making almost a milkshake taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong cocoa and chocolate. Thin mouth, light roast, strong cocoa, dark chocolate, bitter finish, very good.

Pretty good, and I would get this again. However it was really hard to pour. Nice chocolate flavors.

jgb9348 (5173) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Rich deep brown coloured body with a very large tan head - about six centimetres tall, but fades relatively quickly. Aroma of rich oatmeal, chocolate, yeast, vanilla and heaps of molasses. Medium-bodied; Strong lactose and milky flavours throughout with a very rich vanilla and chocolate taste as well. Aftertaste shows some nice complexity with cocoa, roasted malt, oak and way more milk than anything else - very nice and pleasant. Overall, a nice and strong stout with a very nice body and good set of flavours that persist throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$2,39 sampled at home in Washington on 15-November-2014.
