Brewdog Shoreditch. Slightly oily looking black - brown beer. Rich brown head of a good size. Smooth palate, super smooth with very fine carbonation. Light and airy. All right then - this is a good one! Smooth dark chocolate, creamy, followed by a touch of sweet milk chocolate. Subtle dark fruits on the back of the tongue and then the coffee comes forward. The coffee is rich but mellow and seamlessly integrated. Finishes light and airy with more chocolate cream and a trace of orange hop. A belter! So good I had another!
Keg @ BrewDog Glasgow. Almost black colour, tan head. Coffee chocolate aroma & flavour, coffee aftertaste. Lives up to its name. stravale (3088) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - NOV 27, 2012

Pitch black, dirty brown rich tan head, some good lacing then dissipates
Aroma - roasted malts, dark malts, light smoky, plain chocolate
Taste - rich dark malts, rich deep dark chocolate, soft coffee roast - not too much coffee which is good here, lots of rich chocolate malt, great flavour, quite complex, alcohol pretty well hidden, has a touch of yeti about it and there’s the base paradox flavour in there. It’s great.
Palate - soft carb, full body, smooth rich texture. Finish - some slight dryness but there is rich dark plain chocolate roast, rich and mouth coating, great linger of deep dark malts, rich chocolate roast malts with soft coffee. The linger it leaves is superb.
Overall - This is one of Brewdog’s best beers with an excellent finish. Get it bottled!
Keg at BrewDog Camden. It pours pitch black with a small dark tan head. The nose is rich chocolate, toast, coffee, treacle, gateaux, caramel, soy sauce and sesame seed. The taste is rich roasted malt, chocolate cake, toast, coffee, varnish, burnt caramel, soy sauce, charcoal, ash and alcohol warmth with a long roasty finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Good integration of flavours. A tasty brew.

On tap at Brewdog Camden. It poures an almost black colour with a minimal tanned head. Foam dissipates quickly. Aroma is bold and roasty, with loads of espresso and cocoa. Taste is bitter sweet with some chocolate like sweetnes to blend perfectly with roasted malts and espresso bitterness. Body is full with good carbonation. Overall, seriously good RIS.

Keg at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours black with a staunch, brown cream head. Lots of espresso and dark chocolate in the nose, hints of dark fruits, raisins. Big sweet flavor but not at all cloying. Deep and rich, lots of chocolate cake, espresso, gooey fudge. Yeah, wow, this is delicious. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming finish with more chocolate cake, brownies, dark bread, earth, roasted malts, further espresso. Incredible balance. There’s just enough charred wood and earthy bitterness in here to offset the strong chocolate character. Superb. Beersiveknown (5301) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 25, 2012

Draugh @ Brewdog Bar, Camden as "Choc+coffee Stout"dynamiteninja (1872) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Aroma has cocoa, vanilla and some mocha. Flavour has mocha, licorice, some cocoa and hints of vanila. Hoppy finish with lingering hops. Rich and nice, but perhaps too stuffy, sticky or sweet. Go figure.
Draught keg @ the BrewDog bar, Newcastle. Medium purple tan head. Jet black body. Chocolate, coffee, roastiness, dark fruits, tobacco. Bittersweet. Bitter finish.
