Great beer, had it on tap in Portland Oregon and in the bottle and fell in love with it, great tasting chocolate stout, very addictive, I wish it was readily available in Australia RoJo28 (146) - - APR 14, 2018
It tastes like chocolate. Not chocolate stout, but chocolate. Is it weird when something is advertised as chocolate, actually tastes like chocolate it, and you’re somehow shocked. We I was. And it’s delicious.

Pours deep dark brown, almost black, with three fingers thick tan head.
The intense sweet chocolaty aroma is deceiving, taste is way more bitter than expected. Strong roasted coffee notes both in aroma and taste too.
Medium body, smooth mouthfeel.
It's like drinking a 99% pure dark chocolate bar.
Very nice. hitemwitthehein (65) - - FEB 6, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2018 ABV - 5.8 IBU - 69.
.Appearance: Lingering brown head sits atop a murky blackish brown. Visible carbonation streaming up.
.Aroma: Dominating scent of milk chocolate. Subtle notes of plum, fig, raisin, dark roasted malts.
.Taste: Bitter dark chocolate combined with sweet milk chocolate. Bitter presence throughout the sip and on the finish.
.Mouthfeel: Lighter side of medium. Smooth and easy to drink.
.Bottom Line: One of the better chocolate stouts you can drink.

Solid well balanced stout. herinmary (149) - RUSSIA - JAN 14, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Аромат горького шоколада и кофе. Пена кремовая, неустойчивая. Во вкусе жженый солод, кофе, акцент на кокао бобы (горький шоколад) практически без сладости. Отчётливый привкус кокао бобов такой был только у mikkellera. Послевкусие мягкой, обволакивающее, горечь весьма умеренная Rhino1 (20) - - JAN 9, 2018
Fantastic nose, chocolat with hints of nuts? A little hint of yeast-dry chocolat powder. Fantastic en bouche, the palate is rich and creamy. Great chocolat stout. Winner.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 Bottle from World Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is dark chocolate, chocolate brownies or muffins, some vanilla notes. Taste is bitter dark chocolate, reminded me of baking chocolate and chocolate baked goods. Pretty solid and classic chocolate stout. Bitterbill (2186) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 29, 2017

The pour is a near pitch black but when I hold up my glass to the light, I can that it's a very dark brown. Big 2 finger+ head of tannish foam and there's plenty of sticky lacing. Awesome head retention and plenty of lacing.
The smell has oodles of both dark and milk chocolate tickling my nose buds. Wow. Does this ever smell inviting!
And...the taste tells it all. Big baker's chocolate taste that literally has me grinning after every sip. Oh, there's definitely some sweeter milk chocolate flavour there as well but it's nicely countered by a very pleasant dryness coming from notes of coffee and a bit of toffee and that just kicks up the drinkability factor for me. Wow is this stuff good or what?
Good thick mouthfeel gives it a really creamy texture and the carbonation is low and perfect for this beer.
I've had this available locally a few years ago but I never got around to reviewing it so, I had to grab a bottle yesterday when I was in Ft Collins. I'm *so* glad I did!
