Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Malzig-säuerlicher Antrunk. Säuerlich bleibend, etwas würzig. Im Verlauf röstiger werdend, unausgewogen. Im Abgang würziger, die Intensität ist hier angemessen.
Danke an den Doppelbock für das Bier.

This dark brown ale poured with a nice tan head. The flavor is seriously chocolate with a very malty finish. Recommended only for chocolate lovers. JorisPPattyn (10001) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2007
Huge tan-greige head, rather fast gone over black beer with a little red lining; Chocolate, coffee, capuccino, and a bit lactic sourness. Cacao, roasted grains, bit of coffee, which builds up and keeps haning around long, despite the sweet lactose. Quite full bodied, slick. A bit fit-into-the-mold, but certainly not bad. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Thanks to brewer Rodger D. for supplying me the series!
Bottle. Black beer with a thin cocoa colored head. Chocolate roasty aroma - lots of chocolate with just a it of sweetness. Sweet malt and chocolate flavor with some underlying roastiness and lactic. Coffee as well. Thinner body than expected makes this really easy to drink. Lactic notes more present as you continue. Would like it more if it has just a bit more body, but it’s well done. Lingering lactic/chocolate. Thanks for the bottle, Mike. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 28, 2006
On tap at brewery. Pours a deep black color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee and slightly sweet. A medium bodied sweet stout. Malts are roasty, chocolate and coffee. Touch of vanilla. This stout is mostly roasty malts and semi sweet chocolate flavors. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

(Nitro draft: O’Brien’s in San Diego, CA) Chocolate milk? Yeah, I guess, a little, but it’s certainly not Yoohoo! The nose is quite dry, roasty and chocolaty, less sweet than I was expecting. Moderate chocolate up front is in nice sync with the roastiness. Roast is most prevalent in the long-lasting and fairly bitter finish. The flavor is sweeter than the nose indicates, but still fairly mild compared to the other flavors. It has a rich, creamy, sikly palate, but body is only medium to me. The color is almost totally black, but with dark, ruddy edges. Lots of subsurface bubbles cling to the glass. A large, dense head is tan color of coffee ice cream, and a thick, dense blanket of head (too bulky to be called lace) lines the glass. I enjoyed this one enough to order a second! I’d have a third, but Drake’s Denogginizer is also on tap, so I can’t resist its call any longer. DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Nitro paints a nitro appearance and of course, at least when appearances are concerned, you cannot really complain...although, i must say that it was extra jiggly..seeming to be a little watery if I do say so my damn self. The head was reminscent of chocolate skim milk..the aroma, roasty with defined chocolate and coffee notes. Nitro-flat mouthfeel with chocolate milk flavors and roasty-ness. More dry than sweet, really..in fact, not much sweetness at all and adequately hopped which brings the bitterness out strong in the end. Its ok, but I certainly won’t be ordering it again.

Sample @ Ob’rien’s: Pours with a black body topped by a thin head with som lacing. The aroma and flavor are sweet and malty with a roasty note and chocolate and cream notes. Full bodied, smooth and a touch dry. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - MAY 22, 2006
On Tap at West Coast Brew Fest: Pours out a nice dark, black liquid, tannish head, small in size with great lacing. Aroma is roasty, bitter chocolate and creamy. Mouthfeel is full and round. Flavor is sweet, malty, mostly chocolate, some lactic acid also. Good beer, but Drake’s makes so much better stuff. SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Draft at brewery. Pours dark chocolate brown with slight reddish highlights when held to light and a smallish beige head. Aroma is dominated by the roasty malts and a hint of chocoate. The flavor - again roasty malts, semi sweet chocolate and a light astringent herbalness. Full body and gentle carbonation. Pretty tasty and enjoyable overall.
