UPDATED: AUG 15, 2005 Bottle (650ml). Had put it away for 8 months - wow! Pours thick, opaque black - decent toffee-ish head, creamy. Smells .. oh, like a black forest cake, bitter chocolate, aged fruit preserves. Taste ... dark roasts, best belgian 86% cocoa chocolate, hops trying to get in there, sweet grains. Finishes long, sweet/bitter (depends on your mood!!). Almost chewy. Like my sisters famous oatmeal/sour cream chocolate cake in liquid form. Much better than the first botle I tried - set it aside and enoy it later!

I love this stuff almost as much as I love my two golden retrievers, and thats saying something! One of my favorites in winter. Huge chocolate and coffee tastes. Absolutely delicious to the very last drop.

Opaque dark brown body with a dark brown head. Smells like chocolate & coffee. DAMN, the taste is HUGE. Nice chocolate and hops taste floating around. Man, this beer is everything a chocolate stout should be.

Poured a dark brown with a decent sized tan head. Big chocolate aroma and flavor. More so in the flavor as I drank this one. I had this the same night as a Dark Lord so its going to be tough to really compare them. For sure a great sweet stout, a nice desert beer.

This is a decent stout but perhaps sweet stouts are not really my thing. Im more into the imperial and regular stouts. It did have a lot of choclatiness to it, but not enough carmelization and richness

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2006 Smells like chocolate milk! Awesome! Very rich milky aroma. Completely black body with a dark brown head. Tastes of chocolate of course, also tiny tiny hints of some fruits. Very smooth, toasty, and rich. Chocolate is the dominating item here, and it rules. Not too rich at all, perfect coating mouthfeel that makes it a joy to drink. Great stout.

Other than bein a little htin on the palate, this was awesome, like someone mixed the idea of a chocolate malt and beer... it was most excellent. i liked the mellowed out flavor, and by that i mean marshmallow-ed out. mmm smores... aroma of nesquick or something.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Bottle 22oz - Pours black with a frothy tan head that goes about half and inch and laces the glass well. Aroma is milk chocolate and lots of it. This beer is a chocolate lovers dream. Flavor is rich milk chocolate over an oatmeal background.. Quite sweet and quite delicious. Like a big glass of quick, but it is beer! On the palate this is a smooth and creamy drink until the finish then it is kind of bitter and beautifully mouth coating. The hops balance the sweetness an make this quite a tasty stout!

Not too bad, but not my thing... I guess I like seeing the flavors come out when you eat the chocolate seperately. Anyways, still good, nice aroma, almost malty.

Jet black with a huge long lasting frothy head with a chocolate & coffee aroma. Tastes like a slightly bitter dark chocolate.
