UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 Pours dark with an espresso like foam head. The aroma has notes of vanilla, milky cream, coffee, dark with semi sweet malts, mild smoke or toasted tones, and cocoa. In the flavor I picked up on bitter cocoa, mild bitter espresso taste, soft sweet sugar, toasted malts, vanilla, and some booze. The finish has a medium blend of coffee and hop bitterness, with a roasted malt taste, and booze. Overall a good beverage and I?d like to enjoy this again. biggsbowler (629) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2014
Bottles - Pours a very dark brown. Notes of chocolate, coffee, and anise. The taste is a bitter, dark chocolate plus coffee and some dark fruit. The body is a little thin. Overall, this is a pretty good beer. hamilton23 (619) - Alpine, California, USA - JUN 12, 2011
A: Black as night with a fair amount of tan head.
S: Smoke, coffee, some roasted malts, more smoke.
T: Did I mention smoke? Wow, this is smokier than some Smoked Porters I have had. It had way too much imitation smoke flavor for my liking. Where is the chocolate?
M: Slightly oily and slick.
O: This thing should not have the word "Chocolate" in the title it should be Sexual Smoke. There was very little sweetness. masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Just found my notes for this. Shared by Pantanap last November. Poured pitch black. Aroma was roast, licorice and bitter chocolate. Taste was much the same with some coffee, nice and thick, and well rounded flavors. Not as much chocolate as the name might suggest but still a nice stout.

Pours a very dark brown almost black in color. Decent sized head. Smell is dominant chocolate and some tar. Taste is all cocoa and dark chocolate. There are some dark fruits trying to make a presence, but the chocolate just won’t let it happen. Decent beer that I’m glad I got to try. I’m happy I got to try it instead of trying to trade for one on the market.

Bomber shared by the J-nizz himself. Pre QUAZZ. I love the quazz, especially when its done in log land. When we goin back to log land, J? Nothing to complain about here...full bodied, smooth...a nice blend of roast and malty sweetness. I dug it. Sexy! UNCCTF (587) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2017
On tap at the brewpub. Everything about this beer screams roasted chocolate - drinks really easily for a 10% abv. Lives up to the hype. budznsudz (582) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Jet black pour, brown ring of foam. Hardcore roast and smoke aroma. Taste is roast, smoke, chocolate, and toasted malt. Pleasantly surprised. TheGB (578) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2013
On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Looks gorgeous, black with a 1/2" head. Nice aroma of chocolate malt, hops and toffee. Taste is similar, with big chocolate, nice smooth malt, significant hop taste. Palate is very nice, a bit sweet, but has a lot of hops to balance it out.

On draught at the 2011 GABF. Fairly straightforward RIS--a good quality brew with the expected notes of dark roasted grain, bittersweet cocoa, coffee, dark caramel/toffee, and ripe dark fruits.
