Dark brown medium foam with Hershey chocolate color. Beautiful bittersweet chocolate nose. Bitter aftertaste and first taste is chocolate sweet that modulates through a few changes on the palate before hitting you with the cascade hops. At Kappys Fresh Pond in Cambridge, MA. A bit bitter for a sweet stout. It grows on you though after a glass.

Great stuff, not overpowering. Strong aromas of chocolate on the nose greet toasty oats on the palate. I think of this first as an oatmeal stout, send as a chocolate stout. One of my favorite under 7 ABV stouts. A nice sweet finish. If I were rating according to style, this would be in the 4.7 range. Better on tap from the times Ive had it, but my rating is from an 04 bottle.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2006 Aroma is a bit funky with light milk chocolate, mild coffee, lightly malty and lightly hoppy. I think it is the yeast that makes the aroma slightly funky. Pours a huge frothy medium brown head which produces good lacing and is mostly lasting. For a chocolate stout the flavour is not very chocolately. The flavour is moderately bitter with an average length finish which is slightly dry.

Opaque black, with a beige head. Chocolate and hops aroma. Chocolate milk feel and flavor, and a sweet malt finish.

Deep dark on the pour with a tan head that slowly went away. Chocolate, toffee aroma makes you want to take a sip. Nice chewy flavor that finishes with just a slight bitterness that you expect. One of my favorite stouts. A must try on tap.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2006 This is a solid beer. Picked up a bottle at New Beer Distributors (NYC). Very dark, chocolate aroma, coffee/chocolate taste, slight bitter aftertaste.

ABUSEDGOAT (2693) - California, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Black pour with a large head. Aroma was hard to pick up at first, but eventually a lot of chocolate came out. Also oats and vanilla. Lotsa hop bitterness here. Flavor is light bitter chocolate. This could have been better made, especially if it was smoother. Better chocolate flavoring with less hops would have rendered a much higher score...

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 Wow, theyre not lying about the chocolate in this brew. ... Aroma, is nearly like sniffing a hershey bar. ... Appearance is an appealing black, with a thin head. ... Flavor is a rush of chocolate with a hop bite. ... Very dry on the palate, a bit too dry for my taste. ...Overall, a interesting beer, but I dont believe Id stock my fridge with it. After smelling its terrific aroma and seeing how beautiful it looked, its flavor left me a tad disappointed.

This dark brown ale poured with a nice tan head, eliciting a strong chocolate aroma. The flavor was primarily chocolate and coffee and was quite tasty.
