PorterPounder (5190) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Dark chocolate brown pour with a light but persistent mocha colored head that leaves a nice long lasting swirl in the glass, light lacing. Aroma is earthy with some eggnog essence, a bit of black topsoil, hint of chocolate. Flavor improves as it warms with some dark bittersweet chocolate, a touch of topsoil, some brief licorice hints. Mouthfeel has a nice delectable chalkiness to it. Balked at getting this several times due to the price - but then I recall all the times I have paid over $6 for a warm beer at a ball game and figured it was worth it.

NeoHippie2 (788) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 4, 2014
Black pour with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee, and cocoa. Flavor is bitter roasted malt character upfront with subtle notes of cocoa in the background but the chocolate character is no where near the centerpiece of this beer. Finish is bitter roasted character with so slight hops. Just wasn’t what I was expecting really. Not bad, but I wouldn’t buy another bottle.

Mrnoluv (118) - long beach, California, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Classic chocolate, coffee bean, sweet smell, motor oil darkness, great coffee/bitter chocolate taste, the bitterness hangs around. ABV is just the right amount. You do get that warmy, boozy feeling in the throat, even though its just 9.3%. Good stout.

jeremytoni (2926) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2014
From a bottle poured a dark brown color with a fair amount of head. Nice light sweet toasted malty flavor with a lingering finish.

DuffMan (6146) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Silky dark brown with a dense tan head. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate, actually more like chocolate milk to be precise. Bitter chocolate and hard roast flavour, ending with a dry bitterness and more than a hint of booze. Decent but not outstanding.

From bomber. Pours a nice dark brown with a touch of head. Yummy choc stout aroma and taste. Aftertaste has the chocolate sitting nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
