COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Passionately brewed with over 200 pounds of pure, 100% cacao Belgian dark chocolate, this irresistibly smooth stout explodes with the taste and aroma of rich, dark chocolate goodness. This deep black beauty will seduce you with her roasty maltiness and hints of vanilla and caramel.

poured from a 750ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a quickly dissipating head. The aroma of sweet vanilla dominates, there is a light chocolate and fruitiness that is noticeable. The flavors are chocolate, vanilla, with a high level of perceived sweetness. The stout base beer is a little weak in aroma and flavor for what I like in a chocolate/vanilla stout. Thin.

Bottle. Pours a deep black with an off-white head that fades to lacing. Big chocolate aroma, with toasted malt, coffee, vanilla, caramel, wood. Taste is bitter, of dark chocolate, black coffee, toasted malt, wood, vanilla. Lingering dark chocolate and coffee that ends a little watery. Nice!

Poured from large bottle into tulip. Big tan head slow to dissipate. Aroma of cocoa nibs and unsweetened chocolate. Taste is only slightly sweet malts with soft notes of Belgium chocolate and just a hint of vanilla. Silky smooth finish. Easy drinker. Overall easy drinking enjoyable beer. Not overwhelming with chocolate as with some beers of this style. Would buy again, especially if offered in a 6 pack for say $12 over a pint and a half bottle for $10.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 It is truly a dark chocolate beer. Not syrupy. True dark chocolate. Aroma immediate. Lingers in the mouth and coats the tongue. Deep flavor. Lucky the abv is lower cuz it could kill you! Exactly what it claims. Tap

Strong aroma of chocolate on the nose. On the first taste, chocolate right up front with some malts on the back end. Finishes nicely on palate.

Dark, lots of chocolate, body a bit thin, not much head for a stout, plenty sweet. Good dessert beer

Dark brown with decent cream colored head. Good deal of lacing on the glass. Smells of chocolate with a touch of vanilla beans. Tastes of chocolate milk with no trace of booziness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark black, smells like chocolate syrup and flavor follows suit. Cocoa bitterness combines great with the hops. Great dessert of a beer.
