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.

very good tasting beer,
sits very well on the palate with the silky smooth taste just flowing down the sides and roof of the mouth with hints of chocolate coating the mouth.

Not really a stout, more of a rich brown ale. I liked the nitro mouth feel of this beer as well as the chocolate finish.

Not bad at all; a wonderful take on the sweet stout genre, with a nicely balanced creamy chocolate flavor.
