Sour raspberry aroma. Appearance is brown with poor tan colored head. Flavor is oxidized and sour with muted notes of cocoa and raspberry. Mouthfeel is medium with medium light carbonation. Overall, the beer tastes old and infected.

Draft at the NYC craft beer festival. Easy drinking. Hight volume. Very flavorful and east drinking ThaDude01 (1) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2015 does not count
The label is quite deceiving.. I actually expected a deep chocolate taste or hints overall.. I got none of that . I’m not going to go into detail what the head, notes, complexion was .. because overall.. it doesnt matter.. this beer was horrible. Sad part is, at the store i bought it, the selling point was the fact that it said 98 rating on ratebeer. Quite disappointed. Never again two7offsuit (448) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Pouts black with a light tan head. Aroma of sweet malt. Similar flavor with a metallic finish. Christpuncher (3110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Average stout at best. Super carbonated and very thin in flavor. Has a very malty flavor. Not much in he means of coffee or roasted malt flavor. Pours black with a tan head.

Aroma is roasted roasty roast. Poured into a mason jar pitch black with off white head. Taste is super roasted and dry. Not very complex. Sharp carbonation and pretty thin. arminjewell (9584) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Pour on nitro tap, dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, hints of slight dark fruit with a hint of earth, slight caramel, alright. Taste is pretty good, nice cocoa powder, coffee, roasted malt into some dark caramel, toffee, more cocoa, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry. rxeight (3046) - Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2014
12 oz bottle. This isn’t triple chocolate, it isn’t double chocolate. I’m hesitant to even call it single chocolate. Unsweetened lactose, cocoa powder. Brownish roasted malt. Kinda boring.
Has the aftertaste of a post Taco Bell burp. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - OCT 12, 2014

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served an almost pitch black color with tiny of tan colored head. The heads fades almost instantly leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is huge of a sweet cocoa and milk chocolate smell. Along with these aromas are some notes of roasted malt as well as notes of cream, vanilla, and caramel mixed within. Overall quite chocolaty and delicious.
Taste – The taste begins of a semi-sweet chocolate and roasted malt flavor mixed with a cocoa powder taste. As the flavor moves forward, more sweet chocolate comes to the tongue with it being joined by vanilla and caramel flavors as well. A milkier like flavor grows in the taste with some hints of darker fruits as well. The darker fruits are mainly of a raisin and plum giving a nice balance to the chocolate flavors of the brew. In the end, with a light earthy flavor also coming to the tongue, and with the big dose of sweet chocolate and the lighter darker fruits flavors of the brew, one is left with a pleasant fruit chocolate bar flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. The lower carbonation is fantastic for the chocolaty flavors of the brew although a bit thicker of a body would have likely been more appropriate for the style. Overall the mouthfeel is rather decent.
Overall – A rather tasty chocolaty brew with some nice big flavors. Sweet and delicious! gndbeer (1) - Indiana, USA - SEP 29, 2014 does not count
After reading ratings I expected more. I was extremely disappointed. Would not buy again
