On the Eleventh Day of Christmas 2013 the beer gods gave to me . . . one sweet stout. Pours a dark black color with a caramel color big foam head. Heavy aroma of vanilla, cream, and roast, with notes of chocolate and caramel underneath. Makes you want to dive in. Thick, creamy roasty taste, with hints of vanilla, chocolate, and caramel. Very smooth. Really tasty. DenverLogan (1212) - LA, California, USA - DEC 14, 2013
On tap at Amatos last May. It’s an imperial cream stout made with Colorado Rocky Mountain Chocolate. Overall a big sweet chocolate malt bomb with the alcohol hidden and a touch of root beer. Very tasty. colbathcameron (3) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2013 does not count
Pours a near-black with minimal chocolate covered head that disappears quickly, leaving no lacing. A surprisingly muted aroma of roasted chocolate malts with coffee tones. The flavour is more robust, with a nice blend of chocolate milky creaminess and coffee grounds' bitterness in the finish. Roasted dark and chocolate malt tones in the body transition nicely from caramel sweetness to hop bitterness. There's enough dark and milk chocolate flavours to suit the name without being cloying. Mouthfeel is oily, as befitting the 7.2% ABV, but increased carbonation would help my personal enjoyment of this bottle.

Pours black with miniscule tan head. Dark, roasted coffee notes with deep chocolate flavor, though more subtle than I expected. Notes of toffee and caramel give the beer a creamy feel. Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Pours a deep black color with a huge, creamy tan head. Aroma has a lot of chocolate both in the form of chocolate malt and dark chocolate candy. Late notes of red wine and roasted malt are very clear at the end. Flavor starts of with a very strong red wine flavor and I’m not 100% sure why. Light chocolate flavors come in later in the tasting to overtake the wine but it still lingers on my palate till the end. Body is okay with enough body to hold the hefty flavors and the carbonation is low making it feel a bit on the oily side. Overall an okay beer. Just a touch bit sweet for my tastes.

Rated on 11-10-2013 (Bottle) When poured, this beer forms a small tan head with a long retention, opaque dark brown body and spotty amounts of lacing. The Aroma is sweet, malty, chocolate, lightly roasty and hint of burnt coffee. The Taste is sweet, lightly bitter, malty, chocolate, lightly roasty, and hints of burnt coffee. The Palate is smooth, watery and thin. This beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is too thin and watery for the style, the ABV is hidden and this beer is almost too easy to drink due to the weak texture. It just needs more flavor to do it justice for the style. thedm (6177) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 10, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind no visible carbonation, dark black brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was of roasted malt and dark chocolate. The mildly vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium mild roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt chocolate and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. Vcoggins (53) - Cypress, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with a 1 finger dark tan head. Smell is of dark chocolate, roasted malts, molasses, slight coffee, and some roasted nuttiness. Taste is sweet big chocolate, toasty malts, and ..... figs/raisins. Mouth feel is fairly thick, creamy, and a little oily. This is a very good beer.
