Brewed with well water (the original well, sunk in 1758, is still in use with the hard well water being drawn from 85 feet underground), the gently roasted organic cocoa extract impart a delicious, smooth and creamy character, with inviting deep flavours and a delightful finish - this is a marriage of satisfying stout and luxurious chocolate.

Transfer from BA review on 4-27-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a roasted malt with tons of milk chocolate and vanilla. Along with these aromas are some caramel smells as well as some hints of earth. Overall the smell is sweet, chocolaty and delicious. Taste – The taste begins a huge sweet milk chocolate flavor mixed with a good dose of caramel and vanilla sweetness. Along with these flavors are others of a light roasted malt flavor. The roasted flavors fade a bit as the flavor advances with the cocoa flavors taking their place, getting very potent at the end. With an even greater intensification of the vanilla at the end of the taste it leaves on with a quite sweet and milk chocolaty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side for a beer of only 5 % abv. with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. The combination of the slightly thicker body and lower carbonation are very nice for the milk chocolate flavors of the brew, giving it a more creamy dessert like feel. Overall – A rather tasty and not overly alcoholic dessert beer. They pack lots of sweet milk chocolate flavor into the brew all while keeping it very drinkable overall.

Krommissar (4) - Haifa, ISRAEL - OCT 12, 2014 does not count
Pours a typical dark Stout with a thick Mocha shaded head to match. Thick aroma of chocolate, coffee and taffy; almost Irish Cream like, with a following rich flavor that does not disappoint. Palate is unfortunately quite thin and requires additional sips to maintain the deep flavor of the first. Highly recommended for those who want to try a Stout that isn’t very bitter or those not intimidated by an ale on the sweeter side. Should go incredibly well with chocolate souffle or roasted beef.

Bottle from Stewarts Wine Co March 2014. Lots of chocolate goodness in this beer from the big chocolate aroma to the bitter sweet finish.

Bottle from Utah Liquor store park city. pours black with a thin khaki head. big lactose and chocolate on the nose. very sweet on the tongue with a huge chocolate taste. It’s like they took chocolate milk and turned it into a beer. This is fucking awesome!

Bif (1739) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a black color with a tan head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of cocoa, roasted malt and vanilla. Taste of roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla and milk chocolate, with bit of coffee in the background. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Full body, thick and creamy with plenty of chocolate. Nice beer for the style.

Wow. Didn’t have high hopes for this one. But I was wrong. Aroma: chocolate. Taste: chocolate. This is not a beer to contemplate complexities, but an incredibly solid sweet stout that lives up to its billing, and particularly flavor in light of its low ABV.
