Bomber from Discount, shared with ck1 and others. Pours a very, very dark brown with a tan head leaving nice lacing. Aroma has chocolate on top of chocolate, with hints of coffee and caramel, but followed up with chocolate. Taste is of dark chocolate, milk chocolate and chocolate liqueur. Smooth and not quite as sweet as it sounds with enough of the bittersweetness to not overwhelm with the sweetness. Finishes sweet with some bitterness, and smooooth. Terrific after-dessert brew. A sipper, certainly. A bit one-dimensional, and not so "stout"y, but very enjoyable.

On tap at Black Friday. Velvety smooth, aroma confirms beer namesake, flavor brings it all to fruition. Chocolate essence abounds, very smooth despite the high ABV. Silky black pour with spare beige head, but still leaves streaky lacing. Deserving of its reputation.

Excellent chocolate stout! Southern Tier Blackwater Series has done it again. This one lacks only in aroma. I could drink this one all day long.

Strong chocolate scents immediately noticeable, with a hint of the typical stout aromas. Dark brown, not entirely black but thick enough to stop all light. Strong tastes of chocolate when cold, I imagine some of the other stout flavors will come out as it warms up

This is one of the better stouts you can pick if your'e in the mood for chocolate. It's full of flavor has a really good aftertaste and is full bodied

For the sake of time, I’ll get right to it: this is the king of chocolate beers. It’s jet black with a brown head and smells and tastes like a hershey chocolate bar. It’s chocolate to the core. Got it?

Dark brown pour. Intense dark choclate notes with a full, thick body. The alcohol is not very present in the taste. Flavor here is not overpowering but it is very, very distinct.
