A lush dark beer brewed with Dutch bittersweet chocolate, this stout is a fearless blend of caramel, rich coffee and black malt. Moderate alcohol content and a hint of oatmeal add to a creamy and balanced mouthfeel.

Good beer. Dark and black. Coffee und black on the nose. Roasted something tasting. Good overall. No disappointment

Can. Malty, roasted, chocolate and coffee flavors. Medium body was surprising. I expected a much heavier body to accompany the chocolate and coffee. Decent, bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a English Pint at 50°. Color is a deep dark, near black brown with light carbonation and a thin tan head. Aroma roasted coffee and chocolate. Medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is mild roasted malt, light coffee and a hint of chocolate. In the aftertaste things turn sweet and the chocolate stands out a bit more leaving a mocha taste and a smooth finish. Overall its a good Stout, the chocolate comes out nice and it's somewhat complex but in the end something's missing. I don't know what it is, it just feels like something's missing.

Strange label on this can; is that a view from the backside and she's turning her read to look behind? Whatever; strange. Big and black, look is large & in charge. Smells like a nice civilized mildly malty brew, with hints of a roasty nose. Taste is quite strong, the color of the beer and the nose is a deception. Yes, maybe some coffee and if we stretch it, perhaps some choco but fer sher there is much burnt attitude and maybe it even comes across like a mild balic or foreign stout. Yes, seem to have more alky kick than 6%, heheheh. Burnt roasty finish in the end on this one. At least it has some co2 in it clear to the end, makes the palate better than a nitro.

12oz can 7/17/17 (Courtesy Of TerryR)-38° in Shaker-Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, and roasted malt. Taste of the same. This full bodied brew is well balanced and quite nice to drink.

This beer is a dark brown color with a medium thick beige head that diminishes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of chocolate, malt and coffee. Light to medium body with flavors of roasty malt, cocoa and mild coffee. The finish is sweet with a creamy milk chocolate and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Not a big fan of this stout, much too sweet. Cocoa is anything but mild or bitter. Chocolate shake more than dark chocolate. Medium bodied, a little thin in the aftertaste.

beer_rookie (723) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Pours a dark ruby to black color, essentially cola like. Half finger tan head. Low retention, but laces pretty well.

Aroma is like Jamocha shake from Arby’s...I love those. Mostly coffee, but a good dose of chocolate. Not super malty. Offer dominates, a touch of caramel and dark brown sugar.

Taste is a little more chocolate heavy, like unsweetened baking cocoa. Yes, sweet, but the chocolate is like the cocoa. There’s a touch of alcohol that lingers well after the swallow.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. It’s dry, and finishes alcohol bitter. While the feel is good, that bitter burn hurts it some.

Overall, it’s average at best. That lingering bitterness hurts the thing. I would not buy it again, and I wouldn’t recommend it. Unfortunately, I’ve got one more to go, maybe my opinion will change.

Pours a deep brownish black from the can with bubbly tan that leaves light lace. Aroma of mild roast and dark chocolate, taste follows, not chocolate, but not exciting. Just tastes like a porter.

zoucrew102 (2301) - - JAN 8, 2017
Can. Roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate, coffee and a bit of caramel. Pours dark brown with one finger of light brown head that has good retention and lacing. Starts with roasted malt and chocolate flavors with nice, creamy mouthfeel. Finishes dry with some caramel malt and a good amount of coffee to finish it out. Not bad, but fairly standard.
