COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
Ingredients: Water; Organic malted barley; Organic cane sugar; Yeast; Organic hops; Organic cocoa extract; Carbon dioxide
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.

Hansen (6496) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2013
Way too sweet, too much candy. And then..nice notes. Dark brown, clear. Off-white head. Aroma of light-chocolate, coco-nuts and faint vanilla, heavy sweetness and sugars. Harsh sweet flavor, hardly any bitterness, but lots of milch chocolate.

Chocolate overload. While I don’t necessarily have a problem with beers who add chocolate directly to the brew, I have less respect for them than those who achieve it through their roasted malts. Pours nearly black with excellent dark tan head. Scent is pungent and overpowering aroma of chocolate. Flavor is sweet with the bite of baker’s chocolate. A touch thin for style. Good beer. My mom would love it. Not my style. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

Chocolate stout sounds promising, and the look and smell is good, but the taste was just terrible. I felt I wasn’t drinking a stout but very bad chocolate milk with too much vanilla. I’m surprised it’s rated this highly.

8/31/13 $3.99 bottle from RW. Black with a dirty white head. Aroma smells exactly like the powder you add to milk for choc milk. Flavor is just as sweet too much for my liking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RumRunner101 (751) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
Near black pour with a noticeable red tinge and a tan head. Aroma is milky, sweet chocolate with roasted malts. Flavour is the same. Really smooth with the bitterness coming in on the finish to balance the sweetness. Quite tasty.
