UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 Bottle->pokal. Deep brown with frothy tan head. Aroma is pure chocolate syrup. Taste is more subdued, but still loads of chocolate with cocoa and malt. Great dessert beer.

Big thanks, Harold, for bringing this mug. Aroma is huge chocolate and hot cocoa mix. This is the most chocolate I’ve smelled in any beer and in many hot cocoas. Insane chocolate and sweetness on the nose. Taste is similar. Just straight up chocolate goodness with a touch of roasted malt in the after taste. Damn good.

Very enjoyable. Chocolate and caramel nose follows through to the taste, but stays light and is not overpowering or heavy. Consistent throughout without a strong or bitter aftertaste. One of my favorite beers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 550 ml bottle.
Nearly opaque, black-brown with 4-finger tan head and very good lacing.
Aroma of intense sweet milk chocolate, cocoa and malt balls.
Taste of sweet milk chocolate, mild roasted malt and a touch of grassy bitterness at the finish.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
Do doubt about the chocolate in this one! Good though.

wooot! thx Mitch! popcorn is on and I only have a third of a bottle left. Dark brown with a nice light brown cover and some speckled lacing. Sweet light chocolate of the milky sort, light roast, Milk Duds, horny smelling organ. The taste is pretty good and mostly all chocolate with acidic overtones. Heavy on the lactic stuffo, vanilla, mellowest of bitterness. Maybe a touch too sweet... maybe. Slight zip, all around choco impression, lactose bite, soothing finish with acidic notes. Yum time is here. I am looking at an old National Geographic from Jan ’89 with a cover pic of a lady making out with a stingray. How is it possible that her hair even looks like its from the 80’s underwater?????

A: Pours black into the tulip with 1-finger's worth of medium brown head. Lace is medium to stiff. Stays on the top of the glass, but slowly withdraws.
S: Can I "capitalize" CHOCOLATE? Actually, it's nose is cocoa-smelling with a hint of coconut.
T: Taste is tremendous. I can describe the taste as very meaningful chocolate taste without being overly sweet. I've tasted some chocolate stouts that really make your brain think that you're drinking a Snickers. This one you can taste the malt and just a bit of the hops, along with the CHOCOLATE. Truly a dessert beer.
M: Feel is much lighter than the other chocolate stouts I've tried. It's a pleasure to drink. It doesn't overwhelm like it's competitors.
O: Overall, this is an excellent beer, really decent when the snow is flying and you're all dressed up in flannel and bunny slippers.

Pours an opaque brownish black from the bottle with thin tan ring of lacy head that sticks lightly then falls down the glass. Aroma of sweet chocolate and lactose, taste follows but not too overbearingly sweet. Nicely balanced fit what it is, really tasty.

this is the most enjoyable beer I’ve had in quite a while. Very rich yet refreshing stout with strong lactic and chocolate qualities. Perfectly balanced and nicely nuanced.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle poured into an English Pint at 50°. Color is a near black brown with mellow carbonation and a big rocky brown head that slowly falls to a nice tight blanket. Aroma is big and chocolaty. Medium body that goes down with a cream mouth feel. Flavor is sweet up front with bold coco and vanilla then mild roasted malt. After taste is more chocolate with a sweet feel. Overall it hits what they said it would be and may have more chocolate flavor then any other brew I’ve ever had. The only down fall is it gets to be a bit much in the end.
