Pours a dark brown with khaki colored head. Smells like a brownie or chocolate cake, tastes like it too. I like.

Lots of chocolate in this one but is it really a stout? Looks like one but is very light bodied and doesnt have the roastiness you would expect. Smells like and tastes like hot cocoa. A little too much for my taste.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a decent tan head. Nice aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and malt. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, malt, and some caramel. Kind of thin bodied. Pretty good for the price.

Dogbrick (12596) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 019: Choco-tastic 02 on 12/27/2014. Dark brown pour with a medium thin tan head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of chocolate syrup, sweet malt and a touch of coffee. The finish is sweet with a chocolatey aftertaste. Decent overall.

A great looking and smelling Stout, but something is slightly off with the toasty flavor.

lusikka (7793) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Draught @ Tap-House, Munich. Pours a pitch black colour with a beigeish firm head. Aroma of dark rich chocolate, burnt caramel and earthiness. Flavour of rich liquified chocolate, pudding, mild bitterness, some caramel sweetness and herbs. Medium bodied. Very soft mouthfeel. Good balance. Nice one.

rondphoto (4351) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 14, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown/black color, dark tan rim head, lace slides back in. Taste is light toasted malt and chocolate that moves neatly through the palate to a slightly bittered finish. A nice simple brew, a little light and watery, but satisfactory for 5.5% abv. Does what it intends.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2014 Stout. Kahlua and sweet choco aroma. Dark, sunlight does not penetrate through pint glass. Thick rich taste, once again, Kahlua. Great. Better when closer to room temperature.
