Pours a dark amber into black with a thin tan head. Gives off a chocolate/coffee mix smell after the beer has settled in the glass. First taste is of a mild coffee that finishes into a nice chocolate taste. It’s quite rich and it ends up being too much to down yourself. I recommend splitting into a couple of snifters and sharing it. Overall this is one for those non beer drinking coffee loving women.

Drank from a bottle at a bar. Very chocolaty, a bit too much actually. I recommend you share the bottle with someone.

Bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a dark clear brown with a big silky off white head. Aroma of milk chocolate. Tastes of sweet dense bread covered with a thick chocolate spread. A bit sweet but not terribly cloying.

I love stouts, but not ones heavy on the chocolate flavor. This is a very chocolatey beer, I don’t know what Samuel Smith’s did, but this was a delicious beer. Pours black, with a thick chocolate brwon head.

12 oz bottle from Hy-Vee Muscatine. Black appearance with a light brown head. Rich milk chocolate and cocoa aroma. Similar flavor, plenty of chocolate, but not overly sweet. Medium body, creamy and smooth. A bit one dimensional, but easy to drink, good for dessert.

I didn’t think Youngs Double Chocolate would have a rival, but this is it. Smooth as silk, perfect balance of roasted stout character and milk chocolate, neither overwhelms the other, and both are enjoyable until the end, which comes too soon.
