Interesting and definitely chocolatey. Vaguely reminiscent of liquid bakers chocolate. Mild as far as stouts go.

Quite a bit too thick; even for a stout. Massive head, passable flavor.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2003 Chocolate and vanilla, sweet and thin, with minimal roast, a bit unexciting, but easy to drink, not complex at all, some nice flavour though.

Interesting and a great way to get chicks to drink a stout. It really wows people when they taste how chocolately this can be.

Its okay, not great -- aroma was outstanding, head was fluffy and short lived. Slight chocolate taste that was distracted by the weak body and relatively unpleasant bitter aftertaste. Chocolate aroma is really what saved this one for me -- I’d prefer Sam Adams Cream Stout or Anchor Porter over this, but I wouldn’t pass it over. Perhaps I will rerate one day.

This is a good stout. Very chocolatey. I can’t compare it to the bottled version, but it was an enjoyable beer.

Silky mouth feel and mild chocolate taste,
I enjoyed this stout on draught and found it a tad bit
light for a double chocolate stout, and almost imperceptibly sweet.

Black, with an off-white head. Perfume- and soap-feel in the flavor. Kind of scurty. Clear flavor also of dark chocolate or cacaopowder. Still fresh and watery.

Mind you, I looked at the bottom of this and noticed it expired 8 months ago. Rather bitter and unpleasant. Has a nice creamy flavor which i appreciate and is a fabulous looking beer. Probably only rated this low because it's so old.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2003 Starts light and hoppy, not a very strong chocolate flavour, yet very nice. Large head mostly diminishes with no lacings. Nice body, creamy texture, and the finish is short and sweet. It's a good all-around chocolate brew, but I wish there was more chocolate to it.
