3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: 355mL brown bottle with no freshness date anywhere, served in a snifter.
Appearance: Pours a deep black color, no light shines through the glass. Thereís a one finger,
tan colored head and some very good lacing that covers the whole glass.
Smell: Primary scents are of dark chocolate and roasted malt. Thereís also some burnt bread notes and hint of molasses.
Taste: Dark chocolate is dominant with some roasted malt in the background and a black coffee flavor as well.
Mouthfeel: Itís very smooth and easy to drink with low carbonation. It feels a bit light bodied and refreshing even, which is unexpected for a stout.
Overall: A very well crafted beer that is very approachable. Popular belief is that non-beer drinkers should start out with lighter colored and less flavorful brews. This beer shatters that stereotype with its drinkability and sweet chocolatey taste. It is actually a best seller in a lot of places down here in Puerto Rico.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big chocolate aroma and taste. Milky notes with a smooth finish. Could use a little more bitterness but a nice stout. Rich dark colour and keeps a good head. Quite light in body but itís all about the chocolate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, may 6th 2016. Black body with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, candy, vanilla, mild roasty. Taste is sweet too, quite strong milk chocolate notes, mild bitter, with a malty and fruity finish, lasting chocolate aftertaste. This beer is all about the choco it seems. Nothing wrong with that.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown colour with firm, beige and big head. Aroma is sweet coffee with lots of cocoa powder, chocolate, some chocolate cookies and brown sugar. In taste there is strong chocolate flavour, cocoa powder, reminds me of chocolate cookies literally, there is also hint of coffee with milk. Palate is smooth and creamy, low carbonation, medium body. I sense some metallic notes but itís faint note so Iím unsure. Overall nice, BIG on chocolate and smooth, maybe little to... bland, could use some bitterness to counter the sweetness. Other than that very interesting

Deep dark. Oh well, chocolate! Sweet coffee. Light carbonation. Dessert beer. Not too heavy. A week bit single-ended, but still nice.

Good chocolate flavor, though it tends more to more Yoo-Hoo than Ghirardelli.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost black and medium-bodied. Very rich chocolate aroma and flavour. Full, yet mild, sweet taste with light bitterness. Overall, a great chocolate stout. Smooth and simple, but the rich chocolate makes it very tasty.
