3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, near black pour with a tall, chunky, mocha head. Chocolate and crystal malt to the aroma, light hazelnut and caramel. Flavor is chocolate, coconut and roasted nuts up front, some cereal, with some misplaced planty hops and fruity yeast notes rounding it out. Syrupy, slightly slick entry, leading to a fairly neutral, still somewhat slick finish. Not bad, I wouldn’t say that the flavors were melded all that flawlessly as the finish clashes a good bit, but it is still enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark chocolate color with small foam head. Aroma is mostly of chocolate, vanilla and caramel. Taste starts off with the bitterness of the hops and then the sweet taste of chocolate and vanilla come after. A well brewed chocolate stout. It may be too sweet for some people.

Pure chocolate, might be even to much- smells already slightly artificial, but still really enjoyable! Additionally vanilla and already sweet in the nose (like hazelnut spread). Great beer instead of desert!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cóż to za piwo! Piękny kakaowy aromat przywodzący na myśli mleczną czekoladę. W smaku połączenie mlecznej czekolady z czekoladą deserową i nutką kawy. Wysycenie niskie, całkiem spora pełnia. Ładna piana choć szybko się degeneruje. Bardzo fajny balans. Goryczka niewyczuwalna. Słodkie. Bardzo mi się podoba!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hard to escape the Tootsie Roll aroma, which is unfortunate because it makes the stout seem inexpensive and not very serious. It pours beautifully, though, and the medium body does have nice hints of bitterness (though it is overwhelmingly sweet on the finish). It thought it had sufficient body to stand up to vanilla ice cream, so I poured a few ounces over a scoop and found it quite tasty.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought this not knowing it was a sweet stout. It reminds me a lot of "Warlock" from southern tier. Don’t really like it, but it’s not for any particularly bad reason. Has a bit of dark chocolate bitterness to it and a touch of vanilla as well. Not very thick, but not watery either. Smells like it could be barrel aged, but likely isn’t. Rating will be low, but that’s just for me because I might not care for the style

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, vanilla, chocolate and roasted malts.
Turbid/opaque ruby/black beer with a slight/medium beige head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, vanilla and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.
A rich flavoured beer which might be a tat too simple thanks to the cane sugar. The cocoa extract reminds of quality cocoa powder.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle. Clear, dark brown, almost black body with a decent beige head. Aroma is dominated by chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is mostly dark chocolate in combination with milk chocolate, mild dark malt, quite sweet, fruity bitterness and…. well, that’s about that. Fine body and long lasting chocolate aftertaste. This is almost an overdose of chocolate, not much beer really, rather one-dimensional, still damn good. Like a desert by itself best served cold.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bbJUN17, sampled. - Organically artificial, spiked aroma of Nutella, coconut butter, vanilla, roasted cocowafers, chocolate milk: a delicious dessert, but a hint at the residual sugars at play coming through in the end, along with a surprising natural hop bitterness. The cane sugar makes it mark, giving sweetness over texture or fullness: remains a watery, sweetened stout.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle from Alko. Colour is dark brown or dark ruby brown with pale tan head. Aroma has milk chocolate. If you don’t like the taste of chocolate in beer, then this is not for you. The taste of chocolate here is not the kind of high in cocoa powder, instead this is more like sweet chocolate. The kind chocolate candy which has some liqueur inside.
