Bomber. Dark brown with a quickly diminishing beige hed. Aroma of bakers chocolate with some espresso and a cream note. Sweet chocolate flavor with a bitter burnt leaf roastiness and some minerals. Thinner body than Id like. Was hoping for something fuller, creamier. Aside from the body issue I thought it wasnt too bad overall.

beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 16, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Pours black with a moderate tan colored head that faded to a ring after a couple of sips and left some spotty lacing. Very strong aroma of chocolate along with lesser amounts of roasted malt and coffee. The aroma is just wonderful on this beer. The flavor is very nice as well, with roasted malt being the more dominant element, followed by some coffee and then chocolate. There is some very light coffee bitterness present near the end. I have to say I really enjoyed this beer and will be looking to keep a few on hand.

(22oz. bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, lactose, toasted oats, and chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate with a dry, moderately bitter finish.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 Damn! This one was flat out delicious! xmarcnolanx sent this one my way and DAMN is it good. Pours black and thick, big thick tan head, with some good lacing. Lots of bubbles. STRONG aroma of roasted barley. The body and texture are both rich and thick. Very strong roasted barley and grain flavor. In fact, I would say this is much more a "double roasted" stout as opposed to a "double chocolate" stout, but this is *still* one of the better chocolate beers out there. Some nice coffee and malt flavors going on as well. Everything is rich and dark. Awesome. Warming for a 8.1%, but never tastes boozy. Very tasty and an all around solid brew. VERY glad to have that one, and looking for more!!

This was a nice beer that I am not sure if this is just the regular or double chocolate but either way, still very good.

abcfan (920) - New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2008
Good brew. Pours very dark with thin tan head. Aroma is of chocolate and roasted malt. Tastes of chocolate and malt with a hint of caramel. Plenty of roast flavor and alcohol flavor in the finish. Very underrated IMO.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2008
650 ml bottle pours black with a big off white head and lots of lace. The aroma is of lactic malted milk, coffee, chocolate, and some yeasty bready thing going on. The flavor is roasty and malty, with strong hints of chocolate. The palate is lively, rich, and welcoming. Overall, under rated.

tap at the brewpub - I had this one immediately following their regular chocolate stout. It is of course similar, but is certainly a more robust version with a heavier roast malt aroma and a big roast malt flavor with some good dark chocolate notes. Its full bodied with some solid bitterness to it. Its simply a very good brew and in my opinion better than the ratings here. Maybe its losing something in the bottling.
