I dont think Ive every had a strong flavor stout with high amount of Chocolate. the flavor is mocha in its taste and smell. The aroma has a very high concentration of Alcohol and the taste over power you with its chocolate goodness.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2007
The aroma has chocolate, dark toasted malt, and toffee. The appearance is dark red, brown with a medium head. The flavor is like the aroma but with lot of bitterness from what I can assume are hops. The palate is thick and chewy. There is a lot of character to this beer but it has an astringent bitterness that reduces its quality.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2007
Black opaque colored, vanishing beige head. Strong roasted coffee aroma with licorice, some vanilla and oak, conveniently mild alcohol comes up also. Near full bodied. Flavor is even better than aroma: strong and smooth coffee and roastiness dominate, licorice, hoppy bitterness and some chocolate also there. Aftertaste lasts with mild alcohol and sweet caramel, roastiness too.

Bottle - thanks shigadeyo! Pours a clear blackish brown with a creamy but fading tan head. Aroma of chocolate with some roasty malt and alcohol behind it. Creamy full body with light carbonation. Lightly sweet taste of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Dry coffee finish. Another great beer from Left Hand.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2006
12oz bottle. Aroma: Strongly-sweet roasted malt with a nice chocolate presence. Coffee, cream, and an earthy woodiness. Alcohol is noticeable, but not hot. Appearance: Dark brown in color with light reddish highlights. Average sized foamy tan head was short lived. Light lacing. Flavor: Dark roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, anise, smoke/ash, roasted nuts, and some dark fruits. Alcohol is a little too hot. Palate: Full bodied and creamy. Moderate carbonation. Strong alcohol warming in entire mouth and down throat. Overall: A nice beer with some good flavors. Alcohol was just too strong here and took away from my enjoyment.
