italianjohn (2994) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Black pour with a khaki head and light sticky lacing .... Aroma of cocoa, some bitter chocolate and roasted malts .... Taste is of cocoa, roasted and chocolate malts with a light bitter bite ... mouthfeel is thin ... has an off flavor like cheap chocolate you would get at easter time .... cocoa flavor does give it a sort of decent flavor

Voodoo (609) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2016 Pours a deep dark brown with a healthy light brown head which lingers.......aroma of metallic chocolate.....taste is slightly smooth beginning, slight coffee, touch of chocolate then metallic bittering finishing sweet, almost lactic sweet......ADDENDUM after reviewed, when pouring I thought I heard a "PLOP" but thought nothing of it, as I got to the bottom of the glass there was a big, ol lump of something (I will assume cocoa) which I poured out into the trash. Still not sure what it was and dont want to know, but have two more of the bottles. Unfortunate.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7300) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was bitter and roasty with cocoa powder and floral hops. The flavor was bitter and roasty and more dry than I expected with notes of cocoa and floral hops. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Disappointing.

books_n_brews (162) - Baltimore-ish, Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Dark opaque pour with medium tan head. Big chocolate smell. Light coffee undertone. Flavor is similar. Strong dry malt with chocolate. Finish with coffee. I enjoyed. A good chocolate and not overwhelming for roasty

blankboy (7482) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2016
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size lasting frothy light-brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, eggshells, very light hops and notes of coffee and chocolate. Flavour of chocolate first, slightly artificial tasting, with roasted malt in the back. Average bodied. Just O.K.

Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2015
This is a beer that tastes more like coffee than chocolate. Its good, but Im not a coffee drinker, so its not something I loved so much as I respectfully appreciated.

Had this on tap at the Collegeville brewery. Outstanding chocolate and coffee flavors come through clear but not overpowering. Very smooth to drink and the chocolate and espresso flavors come out even better as the stout warms up. Best tasting around 45 degrees rather than ice cold

MattShizzle (607) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle - from sampler pack. Very dark - opaque. Lots of floating particles. Very roasty aroma. Very good. Some flavor of chocolate but mostly a roasty stout that is somewhat sweet.

radio_nowhere (1454) - Maryland, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Draft sample at ABCs Gettysburg-Gateway location, deep dark brown color with tan head. Aroma notes of heavy dark chocolate, roasted malt, smoke and faint vanilla. Taste adds some light coffee and earthy hop bitterness. Medium-light body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy with sweet roasty finish. Pretty solid milk stout, could be a tad richer.
