4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
First tasted at Hotel Hershey in Hershey, PA - an appropriate setting for this stout. Very dark and creamy. It’s better with a meal than alone. It’s great for special occasions, but a little too smooth and sweet to be my normal stout for everyday consumption.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. Ultra drk brown w fair dark beige head that held fairly well. Decent lacing. Aroma is that British thin & watery hard candy (stout flavored) & a touch of Euro hops. Flavor is rather thin/watery British. There is a nice dark roast malt flavor (but it seems fleeting) w a good hop bitterness especially on the finish. This is pushing the middle of med bodied at best. Rather dry overall.

This is a very rich beer. I prefer it over most others. Just wish it wasn’t so expensive.

With the double chocolate in the name, I expected more of a chocolate taste. But alas, the taste was quite decent, with hints of chocolate and not much else of note.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Creamy deep brown pour with 1/4" retained head. As advertised, this is a sweet and chocolately stout... both in aroma and taste. Very mild and easy to drink with a powerfully smooth mouthfeel. Not too much other than chocolate in the taste, save for some nutmeg and what I believe was a little coffee. This would make the perfect foray into stouts for the novice beer drinker.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The name is a good desription for this tasty stout. Good rich texture to play along with the malty chocolate taste (which is not overdone). Suprisingly mild finish, almost too mild. ($2.99/500ml)

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pitch black with a dense creamy brown head. Smells of sweet dark malt and bitter chocolate.
Tastes smoky and creamy. Smooth and milky with underlying sweet chocolate flavors. Milk chocolate is what I am tasting. Slightly bitter as it warms. A dry finish and the bitterness lingers after the swallow. easy drinking for a stout. Very smooth and sweet. A really good stout and that’s always a good thing.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Maybe I don’t have a refined palate yet, but I didn’t like this at all. It was very fizzy. I didn’t get a lot of smell off of it.
Its kinda like chocolate malt soda with alcohol. The carbonation may have ruined it for me so maybe I’ll try it again one day and let it sit for a while. I had it in the bottle. bah.
