Very interesting. Nice dark color in the body, with a light brown cascading effect as it settles. Scent is quite rich. Flavor is incredibly chocolatey, much more reminiscent of a glass of chocolate milk than a stout. There is some roasted malts to offset the chocolate, but mostly itís very milky in both flavor and texture. Itís not unpleasant, just tastes a bit unbalanced and thin. Looking forward to trying this on tap at some point.

I was afraid it would be too sweet, but the chocolate taste is subtle enough so as not to overpower the experience. Great flavor, incredibly smooth, and fairly unique. I love it dispite the disappointing head.

Full-bodied, almost black appearance, good aroma, with a kind of smoky, rich dark malt and chocolate mix, don’t be fooled by the initial chocolaty taste, the flavor is not for everyone, but it is very well made, and it grows smoother with every sip, a good fireside beer.

Impressive. Smooth and chocolaty. A very disapointing head, which detracts from overall and appearance. A great flavor however.

Right up there with Samuel Smithís Oatmeal stout as my favorite beer ever. Great chocolate aroma, and excellent overall flavor. Smooth and chocolatey, its a desert in a bottle.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Has a deep deep brown color, with a tan head that doesn't last too long (from bottle). It's pretty weak in the aroma category, as its smell doesn't hit you very hard on first whiff. It has a pleasant dark-chocolatey taste going in, and a kind of roasted tasted after the finish. There's a hint of fruitiness along with the chocolate taste, too.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2004 Excellent after dinner beer, and also suprisingly tasty over chocolate ice cream. Re-rate, May 2004: I still think its good. But not 4.6 good.

Fantastic stout with a wonderful flavor. A treat & change of pace for stout and Porter lovers, as the flavor is very good, but I would have been more impressed had they not had to add actual chocolate to achieve the flavor.
