I had this on tap at Eli Cannon's in Middletown. It appeared a very dark black, but was lighter up close. The head was too thin and didn't stick around. The taste was excellent with (obviously) strong hints of chocolate and some coffee. It had some bitterness and finished smooth.

Nitro tap at The Oak Cafe. Pours pitch black with a medium sized thick creamy head that just sits there. Aromas are dark chocolate, cocoa powder and cream. Tastes like dry dark chocolate and cream. Only a very light sweetness here and a light bitterness in the finish. Full body with a thick, creamy mouthfeel. Very dry finish. Cool beer but I prefer my chocolate stouts to be richer, sweeter, and with more complexity.

This is a rich, dark and luxurious beer. It has a mouth-filling chocolatey taste which, somewhat surprisingly is not at all sweet, just very rich. The head is creamy and tan coloured. Well-balanced and great tasting, this is a brilliant beer for a cold winter's evening.

Very lovely chocolate brew. A taste of licorice and chocolate. Long lasting taste. A good aperitif.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 22, 2014 Great look, looks like a stout shold, pours nice thick, but quick evaoporating head. Dark Caramel in color, Smells of coffee and chocolate (mocha) with a hint of walnut and raisin. Taste almost exactly like the smell, but the chocolate quicky goes away after the first few sips, but does kind of come back at the finish. Overall, not a bad stout, but I’ve had much better. Was one of my favorites at one point, though.

Lovely full stout with the chocolate coming through. It lacks a depth of flavour to take it over 4 stars for me though. But still lovely!
