rondphoto (4228) - 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.

Ratman197 (13886) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of dark chocolate, light vanilla and a hint of fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth watery finish. Flavors of dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla with a smooth watery lingering chocolate finish.

hitit345 (29) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2014
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.

nearbeer (5078) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Pint on tap. Dark chocolate brown but nearly transparent in the light, with a lasting ring of foam. Aroma is maple, chocolate, caramel and toast. Taste is the same with vanilla, a bit of dry grass, and cocoa on the finish to provide a decent balance. Near-medium body leans to the sweet side and has medium carbonation. Easy to drink dessert beer that never becomes cloying, but I had to shift to something more dry for a second pint.

Frothmeister (753) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
12 fl oz. bottle. Pours dark, dark, dark chestnut brown with a burgundy hue, and a thin latte coloured head. The nose makes me think Hersheys chocolate syrup with light creme brulee, light vanilla, and smells a wee bit artificial. Taste wise, is not as sweet as the profile would lead you to believe. Medium bodied, there is a surprising amount of butterscotch, with dark chocolate, dark maple syrup, and Halloween molasses kisses that lead into more caramel, pecan, roasty malt notes, with vanilla, espresso, and mineral notes in the finish. Totally decent. Was expecting a sugar bomb, but its easy drinking, and drier than youd think. Id buy it again.

Solid stout with lots of chocolate. Finishes lightly bitter and somewhat chalky.

Great aromas of dark chocolate, and toasted malts. Very thin/watery on the mouth with an oily feel, finishes semi bitter. Very sessionable.

N3lson1 (1005) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Wonderful aromas of chocolate and toasted malts. Smooth taste in the beginning, chocolately in the middle, and a slight bitterness in the end.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2014
This brew was very good. Smooth, creamy, easy to drink. IT was a very nice surprise. This is very comparable to Youngs double chocolate or the Fort Collins version
