Brewed with nibs from Patric Chocolate, a leader in the craft chocolate movement, using the very finest cocoa beans from Madagascar, expertly roasted to create exceptionally bright and complex depth of flavor. Pair with our chocolate sampler for an explosion of taste and decadent delight!

Dogbrick (11621) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Sample at the Ann Arbor brewpub. Dark brown color with a medium beige head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Small patches of lacing. Chocolate, malt and coffee aroma. Medium body with flavors of cocoa, roast malt and stale coffee. The finish is roasty with a bittersweet chocolate aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pours a jet black with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, and earth. Flavor is roast, coffee, chocolate, caramel, and light fruit notes. Has a soft, light body. Pretty good, easy drinker.

On draft at Ann Arbor Jolly Pumpkin, dark like a Guinness. Little head. Smooth mouthfeel. A nice chocolaty stout to consume after dinner.

Chocolate aromas. Tastes weak upon first taste, a little watery. Dang it.... That’s all I wrote on the napkin. But apparently it wasn’t great.

5oz on tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. Nice coffee, dark bitter chocolate. Delicious. Fudge-like. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet. More dry finish. Medium-plus body. Light carbonation. Decent bit of chewiness to it. Mostly clear dark brown color. Ring of off-white head. Some bits of lace. Slightly watery feel, but very tasty big flavor to this.

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of roast, acidic malt, dark cocoa, some slight cherry into a bit of vanilla, some slight coffee. Taste was a mix of thin roast, coffee, slight cocoa into a bit of yeast, spice, touch of vanilla into a bit of acidic malt, finishing bitter.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Tap: Deep, husky brown colored body. Far from "black". Pretty light-hued considering it’s a stout. Not much head, either, just a thin khaki film that grazes the top. Nice aroma of cocoa powder, chocolate shavings, roasted malt, a hint of cream, & plenty of milk chocolate. Bittersweet combo, perhaps a tad more on the sweet side. One dimensional, but delivers as advertised. Flavor includes more bittersweet chocolate, roasted cacao beans, mildly astringent roast, & a faint, back-end sugary sweetness. Scorched brown sugar. I also get a very tiny hint of coffee bean. Nice balance all around, despite the simplicity. A little thin for a stout as well, perhaps enhancing the roasted astringency at times. Overall, though, not bad.

Draft at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. Pours black. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is very watered down and disappointing.
