11.2oz bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Very dark brown color. Ring of brown head, decent bits of lace, a film on the glass. I get some raspberry from this, interestingly. Dark chocolate. Bit of creme. Medium to bigger body. Kind of chewy, lighter carbonation. Mild slick texture. Good creamy feel. Moderate bitter, moderate to bigger sweet. Kind of fruity, but tasty stuff. Interesting.

Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours dark brn/blk with a slight tan smear. Aroma is chocolate milk stout. Med + body. Flavor is chocolate, lactose, and maybe some wood. Very milk stout. Nice, but not super exciting.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle at home from de Bierbrigadier, Eindhoven. Nose is roasty, light smoky. Body is pitch black, head is big, brown, creamy, average lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is old wood, carton, smoke, chimney pipe, light hot spicy, mild coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla, dates, lemon grass. Medium sweet, heavy roasty bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty medium to heavy bitter, light alcohol warmth. Full body, oily texture, nearly flat carbonation. Excellent dessert beer, chocolate is not as dominant as I expected, very unique, great one.

Robe brune presque noire, mousse crémeuse brune. Nez assez discret sur des notes de café au lait, de caramel, le chocolat et le cacao apparaissent à l’aération, légère noté épicée et boisée. Une bouche superbe avec une attaque sur le café au lait, une bulle crémeuse, de la tension, de l’équilibre et une longueur impressionnante, finale d’une grande élégance sur une note de café légèrement torréfié.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours pitch black with decent tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate and a hint of malt loaf, very slight metallic note coming through at the very end which I think is the wood. Body is amazingly smooth and rich. Soft bubbles but good carbonation for the style. Taste is heavily chocolate but not bitter chocolate, a good quality rich milk chocolate but not overly sweet. Finish develops into coffee and malt biscuits.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle enjoyed with ebone1988 and his bottle. The pour is a lighter black with a thin bubbly collar of dark khaki colored head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is initially a lot of chocolate. There is a bit of bready cake going on as well as a ton of roast. There is a little woodiness happening as well which is nice. It's not overly complex, and there is a little metallic on the finish, but it's not terrible. The flavor is pretty much all roast. There is a light creaminess and a hint of smoke that pokes through. No cocoa, and there's a light lactose happening on the back end. The mouth feel is pretty damn good. It's thick and viscous with an awesome creamy soft carbonation. There is a lingeringly roasty aftertaste with just a hint of chocolate milk. Not too bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle enjoyed with koleminer20, who had his own. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, some wood, slight booze, real nice. Appearance is black, lightbrown head, poured thin. Taste is lots of roasted malt, smoke, wood, chocolate, lactose, but not much else. Mouthfeel is like drinking whipping cream, super light carbonation, but very heavy body with a light chocolate heavy roast aftertaste. Overall, this is slightly disappointing, but still quite good.
