Only the 3rd, or 4th, or maybe 5th Chocolate Stout. I tend to love them extensively. We’ll see about this one...
Does not smell like chocolate. Does not taste like chocolate. Tastes like a champion Stout though. I am born again! juliejalapeno (16) - USA - SEP 4, 2005
yummy. smeels and tastes like cocoe and coffee, without being overly bitter. great beer Cybercat (5887) - Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Pours a dark, opaque chocolate brown with a fairly thick and somewhat persistent cinnamon tan head. Aroma is rich, smoky, oily and chocolaty with hints of molasses and coffee. Flavor is smoky and chocolaty, slightly sweet, touched with fine roast coffee and molasses. Thick texture is smooth and fizzy, quite lively. nathan30533 (1020) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Great Chocolate hints. Wonderful smoothness and the draft made it even better. Loved this one. Good finishing beer for the eve. bug102 (4) - - DEC 29, 2012 does not count
Reviewed from 6 pack purchased at grocery. A good snort from the snifter doesn’t really return a premium chocolate smell - it’s present but not overwhelming. A pleasant roasty aroma blends very nicely with it. Not much to say about the color - just like my ex-wife’s heart - light does not pass through it. A tan head appears when poured but is not a great feature since I tend to nurse this type of beer. The taste of this beer is its treasure. Well balanced, the perfect amount of dryness so that its sweetness doesn’t cling. Its roasty with just the right amount of chocolate notes that satisfies but doesn’t cause a insulin reaction. Very smooth, creamy, with a soft carbonation. The finish is very satisfying, with a lingering mellowness that helps relax those tire muscles and drown the echoes of the day.

Nitro tap at mellow mushroom. Nitro helps quite a bit. Pour is black with persistent thick head. Smooth as a 4 year old. A bit sweet with cocoa notes and coffee bitterness to follow. Nitro makes this awesome.

Sampled in a Tommyknocker Maple Nut Brown pint glass, rating #1100
Pours a thick brown/black with an olive head that is nice and thick with clinging lace. Aroma of not-so-subtle roasted malt, chocolate, and a whiff of campfire smoke. Flavor is a smooth chocolate bar left over a fire of roasted nuts. Creamy texture, fat flavor, and a silkiness that seduces the tongue. Finish leaves the drinker with bits of chocolate and roasted malt. Very well-done beer. I would LOVE more of this.
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Nice dark body, with a brown head. Had a good chocolate taste to it, more than most chocolates, and went down easy. Had at the Old Chicago restaurant at Barry’s wedding. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2011
