Tasty beer, but a bit too sweet for me. It has a bit of chocolate and vanilla, and some lactic-like sour-sweetness, but it’s mostly loaded with an overpowering syrup flavor. Unfortunately, balance suffers, as the bitterness is only mild; the roastiness is very soft; and the alcohol lacks bite. All that said, it’s still a decent sipper, albeit a dessert sipper. bth122 (1547) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle from U pick 6 Erie. Poured deep brown with medium full head that dissipated. Lots of chocolate aroma in this one. Creamy texture. Medium full body. Medium sweet taste. Roasted malt and a good bit of cocoa in the taste and a bit of hazelnut. Not bad at all. Needs a little more carbonation and head. sseb69 (1908) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012

Pours an opaque black with tan 1 finger head that quickly dissipates with little lacing. Prominent roasted malt with very clear flavors of dark chocolate and background of espresso and a subtle hint of tobacco. Surprising hint of pine hops. Full bodied with medium carbonation (would be great on a nitrogen tap, I bet!) Long, medium bitter finish where I appreciate more tobacco and earthy tones. This is a fantastic stout that is not overwhelming in chocolate, but still the dominant idea put forth. nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Chocolate, coffee, butterscotch, bourbon barrel, vanilla, and smoke flavors. Creamy, sweet, lightly carbonated, and has a dry finish. It wasn’t as thick at I was expecting. Darwenus (1113) - Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2012
This pours very flat with no head at all, and the aroma is strong chocolate. The flavor is milk chocolate, a little coffee, kind of a latte thing going on. It’s very smooth, and the slightly north of seven percent ABV doesn’t show up in the taste at all. This thing is too sweet for me and I won’t buy it again, but I cannot say that I didn’t enjoy most of it. elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2012
12oz bottle, unknown date. Served at around 45F.

Pours black with a one finger brown head that quickly recedes to a wispy cap and ring, despite the minimal head it leaves some nice spotty lacing behind.
Aroma is roasted malts, some cocoa and chocolate, coffee, some dark fruits, herbal hops. Not super-chocolaty on the nose. Moderate strength.
Flavor is milk chocolate, cocoa, some dark chocolate as well, roasted malts, dark fruits, some coffee, quite sweet but short of being cloying, minimal alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, sticky, good carbonation.
Tasty chocolate stout. Aroma is lacking, flavor makes up for it.
Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is deffinatly chocolate malt with some heavy sweetness. Flavor is again a chocolate with a decent but not over the top sweetness. Finish has a decent silky chocolate left on the tounge after the swallow. This was a decent beer from Breckenridge.
