Pours black with a thin, tan head. Aroma has milk chocolate, some roast , some caramel, and a tad of coffee. Very thick and rich. Taste is a sweet. Milk chocolate, roasted notes. Very little alcohol taste but a good warmth. Smooth rich and creamy. Overall an awesome chocolate beer. Lots of chocolate but not too sweet. Well done.

On tap at some random arcade game bar in Dallas. Pours a pitch black with minimal head. Nose smells like an alcoholic chocolate protein shake mixed with chocolate brownies. Fuck loads of chocolate. Taste is super chocolatey and tad sweet. Can taste the booze a bit. A pint of this fucked me up. If you love chocolate this is the beer for you

If Willy Wonka were a beer geek, this would probably be his beer I imagine. Hard to think that a brewer could fit this much chocolate aroma/flavor into a beer and not make it a train wreck, but Southern Tier nails it (again). A rich, decadent aroma of chocolate. Just pure, unadulterated chocolate. Flavor...more chocolate...dark chocolate, combined with a heavy dose of Capt. Black’s pipe tobacco (vanilla). The roast is noticeable but there as a supporting role for the chocolate (chocolate and coffee are great pairings) and is happy to do so here. My only nitpick was the mouthfeel could have had a fuller feel, maybe more velvety smooth...I wonder if they added oatmeal to this? A world class beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Typical imperial stout look, pitch black with a small milk chocolate colored head.
Smells of sweet chocolate syrup with hints of vanilla, like dessert in a glass. Not much in the way of hops or alcohol. This beer is all about sweet malts.
Taste is lots of caramel malts and sweet chocolate. Getting a strange vanilla bean flavor also. Drinks extremely well for 10 percent.
Beer is medium heavy on the palate. Carbonation is a good amount, head unfortunately died down a bit.
Overall this beer has been a solid go to stout over the years. Kinda on the sweet side but delicious none the less. Always glad to have some in the fridge whenever I can get it.

Noire. Beau collet brun. Nez: intensément chocolaté. Caramel. Vanille. Bouche: très très sucré. Tout de même bien balancé par une bonne amertume. Très chocolaté. Vanillé. Ronde. Fine chaleur d’alcool. On dirait une barre de chocolat au lait liquide. Pas très complexe mais combien savoureuse.

Black and cool (temp. wise). White ring. Smells 100% like chocolate and 0% like beer and the flavor is expensive milk chocolate . Your beer-hating wife and mother wouldnt know the difference beteeen this and godiva.
