Aroma: Roasted and chocolate malt aromas, but very faint.
Appearance: Black with minimum tan head that dissipated quickly.
Taste: Medium sweetness all the way through.
Palate: Medium body, slick creamy texture, soft carbonation, soft finish.
Overall: First off, pricey as hell. I realize it’s a rarity this side of the Mississippi, but still. It was a smooth and creamy beer with hints of chocolate and coffee. Very solid, well developed, but not mind blowing. Hollywoodt (240) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle. Poured a nice dark brown with a dark tan head. Aroma was roated malt and chocolate. Flavor followed with a little vanilla and sweetness. This one was pretty good, but not sure it’s worth $3+/bottle. SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Of all the breweries i come across, breckenridge excites me the least, such unimaginatively made beers .. . pours out a slightly murky tan .. . mild mouth feel .. . old cocoa powder and dried out soil .. . quite the boring beer, has nothing to it .. . .

bottle. struggles to form a head. It is a thik, inky black with a frothy tan head that leaves good lacing. Smell is metallic, tangy, chocolaty, bread, slight roasted malt. Flavor is sweet and chocolatey, slightly metallic. Smooth but htin mouthfeel. It is decent. otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Dense black under a lovely espresso hued head that is an easy finger thick which fades into a thin collar with no remaining head. Swirls with a few spots but no more fluff in the middle.

Vanilla, cream, and fudge. Burnt and tarry in the back. Fudge and cocoa. Melted chocolate. Rich and rustic. Vanilla bean mingles with toasted marshmallow.
Creamy milk chocolate. Vanilla and cream. Chocolate leads from the front into the middle. Gently bitter finish with more dark chocolate esters. Chocolate graham crackers in my breath. A little bit of tartness and sweetness in the back reveals itself as chocolate covered raisins and chocolate covered cherries – fresh, not canned or store bought. Cream is the wonderful glue that holds everything together. Deliciously sessionable. Toasted marshmallow in the middle.
A lovely delicious creamy chocolaty roasty stout from the fine folks at Breckenridge Brewery. I haven’t had a bad beer from them yet and I doubt I ever will. This particular offering is a limited seasonal so get it while you can because it’ll be a long thirsty wait for its next release.

The aroma is cocoa powder, little else. The appearance is deep black, light tan head. The flavor is cocoa powder, brown sugar, molasses. The finish is chocolate, sweet, roasty. Medium/thick in body. Good. Just a bit too much chocolate. Sammy (12197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
Surprisingly good chocolate beer from FlandersNed in Warren. He added this one in July 2012 and I received in December. Really nice chocolate pudding flavour, that went well with my chocolate brunch. Dark chocolate bodied with a nice head. Very drinkable. One of the better ones I have had from them. bhensonb (15190) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours dark brown/black with a slight dark tan foamy head. Aroma is sort of (to borrow from a rating below) chocolate milkshake. Near full bodied. Flavor is treacle, dark chocolate, dark malt. It’s sweet and bitter. Sort of goes bitter dark chocolate in the finish. It’s extremely tasty. Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a finger of light brown head, settles quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is chocolatey, roasted malt, dark malt, sweet, roasted oatmeal, moderate alcohol. Flavor is dark malt, chocolate, sweet (lactose), slightly nutty, with a mild to moderate alcohol finish. Mellow chocolate and sweet throughout. Alcohol could be better masked, isn’t that high of ABV but manages to come across a little boozy. But I might have drank it a little warm for a sweet stout. Soft carbonation, medium body, smooth texture, and a mildly warming finish. Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Draft. Really well beer all the way from start to finish. Complex malt aroma on the palate as well. Nice hint of chocolate.
