4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2004 Pours dark almost black, with a brown head that produces some lacing. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is mostly milk chocolate, with hints of roasted malt and finishes with enough bitterness to balance the chocolately goodness. Mouth is creamy like a glass of chocolate milk.
I’m coo coo for cocoa puffs!!

Mmmmmmm, yummy. Rich, roast chocolate malt flavor. Very smooth and creamy. If the abv was a wee bit higher I’d list this near the top of my favorite stouts.

Pours beautifully dark with a bit of a head on it. Has a wonderful roasted scent, with hints of chocolate. Really smooth down the throat. Really awesome flavor.

Tapped pour. Great stuff! If you miss Valentine’s feed your girl the foaming head to more than satisfy her chocolate craving. You’ll turn her into a stout lover too. Deep dark luscious color, flavorful crystal and chocolate malts, hearty, very smooth and drinkable.

Bottle into wine glass. As I was drinking with non-beer afficionados, I picked out this one thinking that no one doesn’t like chocolate. It was definitely a crowd pleaser (actually, a pair pleaser, as I only with two friends.) Poured dark black-brown, brown head was nicely sized. Smell forbode the dark chocolate flavors, also picked up some coffee in the malt. The taste wasn’t as overpoweringly sweet as I expected, with the chocolate tasting like baking cocoa. Somewhat dry. There was a faint underlying layer of dry dark fruits which gave it nice complexity. Finish was nice too. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a big frothy brown head. Aroma is roasted malt. Flavor is malt and dark chocolate with a lasting bittersweet aftertaste that is pleasant. Nice mouthfeel. The chocolate flavor is just overpowering for me being a non chocolate lover, although this is a wonderful brew with lots of great flavors mixing together.

Very good sweet stout. Very appealing bottle and name. Not as chocolate tasting as the Rogue Chocolate Stout, but very close. Good coffee, roasted chocolate aroma. Pitch black appearance with a decent light tan head. Flavor is like dark chocolate and coffee. Slight alcohol finish. Good aftertaste of roasted chocolate.

An awesome beer, first porter I tried that had a milk chocolate flavor. Great dark black body, long lasting head, creamy texture and taste, and nice milk chocolate/coffee flavor with a slightly bitter finish.
