All off the Chocolate beers Iíve tried this is the closest to drinking a bar of dark bitter chocolate. The aroma and taste are intensely chocolaty. I wish Iíd just poured a small snifter and had with dessert. A pint was too much at one go. Smooth and silky. Very good stuff though. Serving: Bottle

Bomber---> tulip. Pours dark black with a nice fluffy tan head that leaves really good lace. Aroma is pretty much chocolate milk. Taste is pretty much the same with some roast and vanilla. Fairly thin palate for a stout. Not terrible, but the chocolate tastes horribly artificial.

This masterpiece rated very highly in all categories in my opinion. The chocolate accent is f***ing delectable. Itís gives just the right amount of flavor without overpowering the senses. Although you can enjoy this anytime, this is best served as a dessert beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
from Bier-Bienne - almost black beer with a little beige foam left; correct lacework though; solid aroma of black chocolate and cacao; medium-bodied and with some sweetness; some moderate and late tartness before a long chocolatey and cacao-ish aftertaste - a one-dimensional yet fairly drinkable dessert beer

I enjoyed this stout on Xmas,,,,after all the kids opened the presents. After all that hi pitched manic panic, the tout provided a nice aromatic smooth taste. I had the Bison chocolate stout last week and I like the San Smith better. Iíd drink it again next season.
