On tap at the brewpub...Velvety chocolate with slightly sour rather than sweet finish. Almost no carbonation, but suitable for the style. Had this as an ’after lunch’ drink and it was outstanding.

[4101-20111112] Tap. Plastic chocolate peat malt aroma. Dark brown black body with a quick foamy brown head. Tangy toasted malt flavour. Medium body has just enough of a tang to be odd. Good to sample. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2

2011-11-12. This is the tale, of a Chocolate stout, black body with a modest tan head. 3+ Flavour is quite tangy, on a mystical quest to the Isle of Tortuga, with a bit sourness. Sort of an ashen porter character to it that I am not sure if it is intentional or not. And now back to the good part! Cocoa with a bit of a tang to it. Heater on blast, I’m the number one stunner! Dry roast aroma, hints of dry cocoa and a similar tangy quality to it as the aroma. Average to light bodied palate. Okay but I am not loving it. This whole cask is a stout, just waiting for chocolate. Needs more Michael Bolton. YEAAAHH! On cask at Jolly Pumpkin Cafe, Ann Arbor

On tap at the brewpub. Woody, earthen floor cacao husk aroma. Light, toasted sweet chocolate flavor. Dry. There’s some body missing here I think. The dry chocolate roast needs a little more of something to stand up against. Flavorful otherwise.

draft... nice dark brown body, a bit of head, good looking beer... the nose has some nice bitter chocolate, well rounded... tastes pretty nice, a bit of a sour note that I find distracting but nice chocolate

Tortuga Ale Company Chocolate Stout On tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor, MI. Pours a black body with an inch thick, dense and very creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice solid throughout. Aroma is very smooth with nice cocoa nibs containing a light bitterness. Soft roast malts with a touch of fruity acidity. Flavor is similar. Very smooth chocolates and roasts up front with some nice, lightly bitter cocoa nibs and roasts coming out towards the end. A touch of fruity acidity again. Roasts, rich milky and dark cocoas, and a slight bitterness kicks up at the end as this finishes smooth and lightly dry and bitter before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Light-medium, very soft and silky body with no real carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid, very easy drinking stout. Nice mix of cocoa bitterness, rich chocolates, and smooth roasts. Good beer.

On tap at the Traverse City Jolly Pumpkin. A black pour that I didn’t write down the head color of. Cocoa aroma with coffee and some dark fruit. Flavor is cocoa again, with dark fruit, molasses, some roastiness. Rather light on the palate. Not so special.
