Nectar of the gods. Deep, dark, almost black body with a thick tan head. Rich, full fudge-like aroma. Taste evidences the claim to chocolate in the brewing. Delicious without being overly sweet or masking the beer flavor. Wonderful finish that tells you it was a great drink. Excellent, however, Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout is better. Why? It's from Brooklyn!

Very dark appearance poured from the tap with a big head. Sweet, roasted malt aroma. Velvety smooth taste with a bittersweet quality towards the end. Like having a malted milk with alcohol.

It's pretty good unless you have had the Rogue chocoalte stout, which seems to balance its chocolate a little better. I liked the bitterness but wish there had been more of it to balance with the sweet chocolate.

Bittersweet coffee, roasted barley, and dark chocolate flavors. Not a session beer by any means but i've since brewed my own chocolate porter so I'd say it left me with a good taste in my mouth.

nice fresh smell with just a hint of chocolate; almost black in color with a long-lasting tan head; definite taste of coffee, but I couldn't detect any chocolate; smooth, with a mildly bitter finish

Ok bought in the wonderful Youngs 16.09 oz brown bottle..great simple purple label. Well this is one of the best looking beers when poured that I ahve seen so far..almost pitch black beer ( some faint mahogany hints when held to the light)..and a massive creamy coffee and creme colour head bee-U-tee-ful. After all that the aroma is rather subdued..some raosted malts.. but its a fresh aroma. MM lovelly tasting stout starts of with some sweet malts and then gets all creamy and finishes with some great milk chocolate ..wonderful sipper. Fantatsic feel on the tongue very smooth and creamy A most drinkable stout..very nice stuff indeed.

Very smooth, delicious dessert brew. Goes great with fresh-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies!

This is a very smooth, creamy, and heavy beer. The chocolate flavor is nearly as strong as the name would lead you to beleive. In my opinion the coffee flavor is much stronger. The head is rather thicks and long lasting. The aroma has a more prounounced chocolate smell then the taste. Overall a very good beer that I would reccomend to any stout lover.

Smooth and creamy. Not sure why they call this "Double Chocolate". It has a hint of chocolate (along with coffee and roasted malts) but the chocolate doesn't dominate (and that's a good thing). Smooth finish. It leaves a lingering, fruity finish on my tongue sort of like a bing cherry. This beer rocks! A better session stout than Guinness.

I have had this beer alot and I am finally going to rate it. Smooth. Like chocolate milk. For the price and the quality, this beer is among the best. Good aroma, great smooth taste, and can you say chocolate?
