COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A sumptuous imperial stout loaded with notes of chocolate, coffee and deeply roasted barley. This beer is brewed as a showcase for Dandelion Chocolate‘s amazing cocoa nibs.

Roasted in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District, we pick single origin nibs for each batch that will highlight the complexity of chocolate combined with beer. Aromas of red fruit, espresso and cocoa powder intermingle with the base beer to form something new, complex and deeply indulgent.

Enjoy this winter sipper with chocolate desserts featuring Dandelion’s chocolate, or alongside chicken mole or BBQ beef brisket to explore its more savory side.

Draft. Black beer with a brown head. Light roast aroma. Chocolate and light roast flavor with caramel and light nuttiness. Medium-plus bodied. Chocolate and light roast lingers with caramel.

This beer has only a faint whiff of chocolate. It needs more. It also has a mildly disagreeable after taste or finish. I've had lots better. Also over priced.

Served on tap at Brouwer's Cafe. Dark black color with a large tan head. Strong toasted chocolate aroma. Heavy body. Very smooth. Strong up front chocolate flavor with a late bitter taste that lingers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had at a tap takeover at Uncle Henry’s Deli in Downey. Very interesting beer. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, and burning rubber tires. Flavor follows with a curious bitterness. Interesting. Nice beer.

10 ounce sample on tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Aroma has some anise and slight sweetness. Mild smoke, too. Opaque dark brown to black body with a creamy, medium tan head. Starts with mild bitter chocolate. The middle has more anise. This is followed by a bit of a burnt rubbery flavor. Finishes pretty thin. Ethanol is well hidden.

Swift, NYC tap: pours black with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate, but not too much of it... Some roast and light coffee. Taste is sweet. No bitterness. Medium bodied. It ain’t too great.

Deep dark, black hue with a frothy, 1 finger, off white head that fades quickly. Chocolate, roasted malt, indistinct sweetness on the nose. Sweet, malty, chocolate, slightly sweet and bitter on the back end. Thick and clean. Decent imperial stout but not one of my favorite almanac beers.

On tap at a Concord beer festival. Quite good. Tasty and sweet, but I didn’t get much of a sense of chocolate.

Big on the chocolate, especially on the nose, just like their smaller abv chocolate beer. Dark fruit and bakers chocolate dominate the palate. No way does this seem like a 10% beer. Smooth and tasty, great post meal libation.
