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. FezMonkey (268) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Jet black with a huge long lasting frothy head with a chocolate & coffee aroma. Tastes like a slightly bitter dark chocolate. antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2005
22 oz bottle. Damn near black with a healthy light brown head. Has a strong sweet chocolate aroma with some earthy qualities. Delicious smelling. Chocolate lovers dream aroma. Dark chocolate flavor hits you first, becoming intensly bitter and quenching at the finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, and nice mellow carbonation level. Flavors of dark roasted coffee and hops are also present. The hop bitterness is strong, but perfectly balancing the sweet chocolate and dark malts. Drinks like a dream. If you like stouts, especially sweet or chocolate ones, this is one you must drink. lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours pitch black with a huge deep brown head. Some lace but not alot. Smells of chocolate and cappucino.
Taste is overwhelmingly of dark chocolate. And bitter coffee as you might expect. But there is another dimension to this beer and that’s the sweet milkiness that reminds you of a milk stout. Mixed with the chocolate/coffee bitterness, the creaminess lends a bittersweet quality to this brew. Again, a creamy mouthfeel with a nice bitter finish. But still very smooth. Really luscious and easy to drink. Fantastic stout.

Smells like sweet chocolate with a full tan head. The chocolate is strong and slightly bittersweet but quite excellent. Even reminds me faintly of chocolate milk. jtxx (149) - san antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pitch black with a nice creamy/brown head. Great chocolate and coffee flavors. If I was rich and could afford sitting around all day....this would be my choice of drink ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Black as pitch with a brown head. Bitter unsweetened chocolate flavors and burnt coffee. Very tasty not as sweet as the young double chocolate. Sirjohn03 (39) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2005
pours black with a lasting brown head. very chocolaty aroma, tastes hoppy and chocolaty, finishes a little bitter. very nice stout. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Deep tar black pour, with brown even head. Salty and sweet aroma of coffee. Decent lacing. Sharp dry dark chocolate aftertaste, with a burnt sugar finish. Overtones of smoke, light chipotle. Light brandy plum alcohol notes. A little bit too bitter on the back end for my palate. A little basalmic quality. Vinous. Clean finish.
