3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent, but more carbonation than creamy. Had some chocolate notes, but there are plenty better chocolate stouts out there.
Poured a deep brown almost black smelled of roasted chocolate. Nice mouth feel and very smooth Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Aroma of Hershey’s syrup like you find in a squeeze bottle. Black, used oil look. Strange sweet, rubbery taste. Seems very artificial. Not even particularly heavy, its just slimy. Nice graphics, but no surprise that last year’s bottles were the last. Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle: Syrupy and overly sweet. The chocolate flavor is cloying and artifical. Would not drink again. davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 15, 2013
2011 vintage, 22 oz bomber into a DFH signature glass. Opens with a very loud pop.
A - Pours a jet black body, Two fingers of light mocha foam with some pretty impressive lacing and retention. Stuff just clings on for dear life.
S - Oh no. Ohhhh no. Bittersweet chocolate, plastic, roasted malts, burnt coffee and some vegetal qualities. This is bad, real bad.
T - I’d rather not try this, but I must. Bitter chocolate fades into wet cigarettes, weird red fruits, and an underlying plasticy element. This isn’t an infection, its just a beer that probably saw some less than ideal living conditions during its two year stay on the store shelf. I can’t finish this. Ugh...mouthfeel is medium and coating and lasts for a long time, which does NOT help.
O - Chock it up to a bottle past its prime, but this is just undrinkable. BA Siren Noire was a bit average but a hell of a bargain. I was hoping that the base beer would be similar. Note to self, buy this beer fresh. Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Chocolaty Stout yes it works and this one is a good example. And a hell of a lot cheaper than most well worth the money and trying. Great coco flavor and not overly sweat making it a good pick for a cigar as well

Bottleshare BBQ at Dave L’s, PA - 27/05/12.
Extreme dark brown approaching black, tan head.
Roasted dark malt, cocoa, brown sugar aroma.
Taste marries nose with a little dark fruit and more sugar.
Medium bodied and carbonation a little too sweet. AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Black color with tan head. Chocolate syrup, earthy kelp, black malt aromas. medium body. Chocolate, kelp, saline flavors with lightly astringent burnt malt--not bad. Huhzubendah (3775) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2012
On cask at Evening Star in Alexandria, Virginia.
The beer is dark brown with just a few bubbles of carbonation present. Both the aroma and flavor are dominated by a huge chocolate presence. The beer tastes like chocolate Yoohoo and melted chocolate candy bars. While the beer is decent for what it is, I find it quite one dimensional. The feel is medium bodied and smooth, as is typical of a cask ale. Overall, a decent chocolate stout.
