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.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 This beer is so chocolatey and sweet that it is very nearly a dessert. It is so yummy one might almost not believe it is a beer at all.

Beerenberger (1555) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Aroma of coco/hot chocolate. Pours a dark brown with a robust foamy mostly diminishing tan head and sticky lacing. The taste follows the nose. Milk chocolate with a slight bitter aftertaste. Medium body and modate carbonation. Light, but creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a nice sipper after a meal. Too chocolately to drink in the middle of the afternoon.

boydmarq (50) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Very chocolatey aroma that carries over into the taste. Typical stout notes with a mild coffee undertone. Light in alcohol for a stout, but that adds to its drink-ability. Overall, very nice and would definitely buy again.

Dark brown, black in color... Aroma of chocolate malts, sweet milk chocolate... Flavor is dominated by cocoa, with roasted malts, hint of coffee on the finish... Delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EdKing (2068) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle from Wholefood Markets, Kensington. Opaque very dark brown, lighter at the edges. Nose is very rich syrupy chocolate, vanilla, milky, lactic and something almost medicinal, like cough syrup. Taste is very rich, milky chocolate, cough syrup. On the finish there’s a lot of vanilla and the cough syrup taste. Not sure about this. After a minute there’s quite an unpleasant aftertaste. Roasted malt, milky cough syrup.

pineypower (2660) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle from spirits Manahawkin. Pours out black with a small white head. Aroma is of a good deep chocolate brownie mix, cocoa, light roast and more rich chocolate, man this smells good. Taste however is way over the top. Crazy chocolatey sweetness, rich cocoa, syrup, raw brownie mix, light roast and some bitterness. Way too sweet on the taste.

Chocolate bar nose. Large chocolate palate. Like drinking chocolate milk with alcohol. Not for everyone.
