Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Bottle from Total Wine. Appearance is oily black with a large mocha head. Aroma is more of a smoky and nutty smell than anything else...not getting much chocolate there. Flavor is...different...nice original burst of smoky coffee but it hits a kind of bland middle before finding its roasted origins again at the end. They could have saved some money and kept the cocoa powder out because I never tasted or smelled it.

Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is not a huge chocolate but I am getting a large cinnamon. Flavor is again a very minor bitter chocolate with some ashy malt. This was a bit too thin and not enough chocolate stood out.

12oz bottle pours a muddy dark cola brown with some spitty, brown head. Nose has toast, roasted grains, some chocolate, cakey. Flavor is heavy with the roast and toast, cocoa powder. Dry finish.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small tan head. The aroma is roast and bready malt. Thin mouth and watery, light roast and cocoa, not much going on with this one.

This was a very good stout it was smooth, dark and had a great smooth head. I was impressed with how smooth it was. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Didn’t pick up much chocolate and was hoping for that since I’m not too keen on the Dry Stout genre.

rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2015
Bottle at the hotel room in San Diego. Black beer with a small head. Roasted chocolate aroma, licorice, coffee, cocoa powder, caramel, earthy notes, some biscuits. Roasted chocolate flavor, tar, coffee, kinda bitter, hay notes, some tar. A bit too heavy on not so good coffee. Liked the aroma though.

This beer is lacking something, its not horrible just weak, not enough alcohol or just not enough stout flavor overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bison Organic Chocolate Stout has a thick, beige head, a very dark brown (almost black) appearance, with heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark coffee, cream, bitter chocolate, and rich, dark-roasted malt. Taste is of acidic, strong coffee, chicory, cream, bitter chocolate nibs, and dark malt. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Bison Organic Chocolate Stout finishes semi-wet and drinkable. RJT

bigericsports (96) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bomber poured into a pint, black with a light brown head decent lacing. Chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa powder, dark fruit, roasted flavor with toast, burnt nut and bitter chocolate notes. A good dose of bitterness counteracts the cocoa leading to a dry finish with a subtle tinge of hops. This stout taste a lot better when served at room temp.
