Pours dark brown with beige head. Pretty beer. Strong aroma of chocolate, under that one can find roasted malt. Flavour is roasted, very sweet, chocolate. Full bodied.

This guys is exactly what I always expect from a chocolate stout, but never seem to get. Itís almost too much chocolate, almost... but itís not. The chocolate comes through in the aroma, the taste, the mouth feel, even the finish, but yet the stout is still sitting right there with it holding itís own.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 50 cl bottle. Rich aroma of sweet coffee and chocolate. Sweet fruit and sweetness. Very brown to black. Thick light brown head. Lasting long. Very sweet! Coffee, dark chocolate. Some bitterness from hops. Little metallic on the lips. Not so smooth and filling in the mouth

Damn, this thing would make Hersey's blush. It is a dark, bitter chocolate that makes for a tasty beer. No need for dessert.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 550 ml bottle from State Line, 11/13/13
Aroma: The nose is full of chocolate and sugar, very sweet, lives up to its name
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small brown head and fairly coating lace
Flavor: The taste is sweet and malty, tons of milk chocolate, almost a chocolate mix flavor
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a smooth, creamy feel, and a soft carbonation
This is one heck of a sweet, gimmick beer. Very much lives up to the chocolate part of its name. Honestly, it is hard to notice anything beyond the chocolate flavor-wise. Makes for a nice, sweet alternative, but it is not an every day drinking beer.

Outstanding complexity on something as seemingly banal as a dessert beer. Deliberately admonishing hops and celebrating rich flavors of milk chocolate without being too sweet, this is one of the best sweet stouts available.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
550 ml. bottle. Pours a very thick, well retained, beige head, with some lacing, over a clear, brown black (SRM 35).....nose is heavy chocolate, vanilla, hints of toffee/caramel, minimal hops, no esters....taste is sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, toffee/caramel, minimal hop, roasted malt bitterness on the finish....mouth feel thick, sticky, carbonation adds a light acid finish. This is a very sweet beer, with chocolate dominating aromas and flavors. The vanilla and toffee/caramel tones are pleasant, but add only slightly to the overall complexity. When a beer is this sweet and chocolatey is it beer or an alcoholic soft drink? BJCP 7/3/11/4/7
