Is Chocolate Camaro a sex joke? Because I think it should be a sex joke. Not going to come up with one though because that would require actually being funny. Very dark brown pour, near black, with medium tan head that slowly dissipates into a tan film. Nice lacing. I’ve always thought it was OK to have 7 out of every 10 jokes fail. .300 batting average will get you into the hall of fame. Aroma of Dark chocolate, oreo cookie, light roast. Maybe a bit of cocoa. Flavor is dark chocolate, cocoa, some nuget. Actually, extremely dry. Probably the driest chocolate stout I’ve ever had. Basically, liquid dark chocolate without any annoying sweetness. Which is really nice. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Light lactose sweetness peaks out as it warms. Quite an excellent chocolate stout. Hard not to get behind this. hopscotch (11451) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Growler… Pours pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a carbonaceous, sweet marriage of coal and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is a ribbon of sweet, creamy milk chocolate and bittersweet dark chocolate. Finishes with candied nuts, chocolate and light smoke. Kudos to pantanap for shipping the growler my way! fear025 (214) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Aroma:Roasted malts with some of the sour dark roasted malts smell. There’s a little bit of caramel and coffee.
Appearance:Black with espresso colored head.
Taste:Dark malts on the foretaste. Chocolate, caramel, and vanilla flavors come through more on the midtaste. The aftertaste has the slightly sour dark roasted malt flavors.
Palate:Medium body, not particularly heavy. Ok carbonation.
Overall:This is an easy drinking chocolate stout, pleasant and sessionable.

Taster at the Half Acre taproom. Tan beer with a thin ring of foam. Deep choclate smell, kind of carried away by the roasty malt. More roasty stout in the taste. Pretty dry, and seems lighter in alcohol than even the claimed amount. kaser (6430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Delicious chocolate stout. Milky and earthy but great. Draft at half acre. Black with foamy white head

Porch beer in early Feb? 60 degrees out? Yep! Dark black. Think tan head. Thick creamy milky stout. A touch of vanilla would have kicked this into a 4, but as is, it’s really nice. I want more. zgaier (1968) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2017
Bomber. Pours a dark brown with a tan head and nice chocolate aroma. Taste is full of sweet milk chocolate notes, with roasted malt, and coffee notes into the creamy, chocolate finish. satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2011 growler card #2 punch #3. aroma is black cherry, raspberry and luscious fudge brownies. appearance is 99% opaque with filthy brown tinged head in large amounts but moderate to low carb. flavor echoes aroma with further pressure from the fruity notes, raspberry espically. those esters lighten the chocolate and keep it tempered and interesting, checking pure sweetness. mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Growler thanks to msante79. I’ve been extremely impressed with everything I’ve had from Half Acre so far so I’m excited to try this one. Pour is dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla in the aroma. Sweet taste with milk chocolate, coffee, nuttiness, and some cream. Not overly sweet at all. Slightly bitter in finish. Fairly light mouthfeel.
