2010 Bottle No. 207. Shared at the Nashville Beer Summit. Flat and pitch black. Very sweet flavor, dark chocolate and slight raspberry, Belgian in it’s pruneyness, almost like a Quad. juiceisloose (1496) - Windermere, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Growler at RBWG. Pours a deep, dark mahogany color and topped by a small head of tan colored foam that recedes quickly to a thin film. The aroma is rich and filled with several varieties of chocolate from sweet milk chocolate to some darkly roasted chocolate. Some earthy hops lend some bitterness which oats lend a nice smoothness. The flavor follows suit with the sweet milk chocolate, roast, and lactic sugars. Medium bodied with subtle carbonation that leads to a sweet chocolate finish. This is an easy drinking chocolate milk stout. Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Growler at RBWG in March 2010. Pouring a deep and dark mahogany color that is slightly translucent at the edge, the body is topped with a small, swirly, khaki colored film. Minimal, spotted lacing marks the glass. The nose is very rich and chocolaty, as it better be with a name like Sweet Chocolate Love, sporting notes of rich, lactic milk chocolate, subtle dark chocolate roast, and hints of creamy flaked oats. Hops lend a touch of earthiness, but largely stay out of the way. Flavors follow suit, very rich and chocolaty, with a good amount of milky sugars that are balanced nicely with a touch of roast. Moderate in body and carbonation, the palate is soft up front, drinking easy, but it finishes with a bit of a chalky feel. Overall, it’s a very fine example of a chocolate milk stout. Tasty stuff. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2010

Sampled at the 2010 RBSG Grand Tasting, can’t remember who cracked this, but thanks! Poured black with a yellowish brown head that dissipated slowly. Aroma was a nice combination of both sweet and dark chocolate notes with a bit of coffee. Flavor was more bitter chocolate and some coffee but not particularly sweet. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2010
Growler, RBWG 2010. Pours a flat black body with a minimal wispy light brown head. Rich chocolaty nose with some roast, light lactose, and some minimal hops. The flavor is full on rich milk chocolate with a roasty sweet finish. It’s like drinking a chocolate bar. Medium bodied, a little sticky, with soft carbonation. Very nice Sweet Stout. decaturstevo (6257) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Black pour with no head or lace. Espresso and chocolate aroma. A hard espresso flavor with a light chocolate kicker. Medium bodied with no carbonation. (growler) Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2010
Growler. Pours a black body with a tan head. Dark and roast y aroma dark chocolate tones and coffee esk notes that don’t follow through at at all. A much softer and sweeter palate then suggested by the aromatic character. A creamy more lactose, hints of oats, and a nuttier body. A nice sweet stout. hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2010
Growler… RBWG ‘10… Pours motor oil black with a very small, fat-bubbled, beige head. The aroma is nutty and chocolaty – more nutty than anything else. Full-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is much like the nose, plenty of sweet chocolate, almonds and cardboard-like oxidation. Fades rather than finishes. Thanks to darkguardian for bringing this one along to share!
