3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
55 cl bottle @ Kaunis Kampela. Aroma is rather nice with sweet chocolate and vanilla. Flavour has artifical chocolate, some cocoa and licorice. Good, could be even better with stronger body. The artifical chocolate essences start to disturb a bit at the end of the glass.

Pours an almost jet black ruby red with very little head that was tan color. The aroma was of a nice sweet chocolate. The flavor was of a nice chocolate with vanilla notes to it. The body was on the medium side with a slight bitter aftertaste. Overall a good brew.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2015 Bordering on perfection, this sweet stout is sublime. The aroma is strictly cocoa, sweet but not cloying. The flavor follows with added drinkability from notes of coffee and a vague but distinguishable bitterness.

Very strong chocolate flavor, which overpowers the coffee. If you are a chocolate fan, this one is for you.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark black with light tan head. Has a strong cocoa and malt aroma. Has a strong cocoa taste with some malts and coffee, but a little watered down than most chocolate stouts. The chocolate taste lingers.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Amazing Chocolate Stout, for someone that doesn't like a coffee flavor base. Sweet, and I don't find the flavor artificial as some reviewers have...if you're looking for a true chocolate "dessert beer," I can't imagine any better than this. Tops my previous chocolate fave, Southern Tier's Choklat.
