Dermis (20) - Monona, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Pours black with brown head. Smells just like Hersheys powdered coco. Medium bodied unsweetened chocolate flavor ending with nice bitter hops. Avery nice stout. Great with a piece of chocholate cake!!

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - DEC 17, 2004
22oz bottle. Guinness sloped pint glass. 48 degrees on glass #1(cellar temp), 52 degrees/ glass #2. This poured BLACK. I held it right up to 3 60W bulbs on a mirror and I got no color except for a dark red halo on the bottom of the glass. That last other two beers I tasted tonight had no heads so I poured glass #1 a bit too hard and got a HUGE head that was fun to watch fall into billowy, cloud-like shapes. #2 poured a nice 2 finger head that stuck around for a miute or two and left me with a nice "coating" head. Head was mocha brown. I got nice lacing throughout the glass. The nose is roasted malt, extra bitter 70% chocolate with some tart fruit undertones. The nose was much more pronounced on glass #2, no doubt because of the raise in temp. Roasty flavor, a hint of turkish coffee, and extra-bitter 70% chocolate that melds into a sweeter (bittersweet, not sweet) chocolate taste. Some backing hops that give it orange peel? notes . Dryish finish that ends with the return of the 70% chocolate. Good/not great mouthfeel, almost like skim chocolate milk with a tiny espresso shot. Neat brew.

SDalkoholic (2371) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 16, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 By smelling the aroma on this baby my mouth has begun to already salivate. It reminds me of a moist German chocolate cake. Pitch black and a pinky/tan head that leaves behind a minimum amount of lacing. Flavor is easy on the tastebuds and palate. Some chocolate, vitamin D milk, and little hint of coffee bean used. Oily texture and little bit creamy, very well rounded. YuMmy! Update 11-4-06 from a 4.2 rating now to a 4.8

Black. A 100 watt bulb will not shine through a 3 inch collumn of this stuff. Thick, foamy head that lasts. Nose is chocolate and juniper berries, olives. Flavor is intense chocolate with plum/prune overtones, and a chalky beginning. Finishes lingering chocolate.

Lubiere (13271) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004
Deep opaque black with a thick moka head. Chocolate and pinhey hops in aroma, with traces of vanilla. Sweet chocolate with intense hops, also feel vanilla here. rich bodied. (Sept. 2004)

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2004
This poured out of the bottle like Hersheys Chocolate Syrup, except that it had a soapy, sudsy brown head. The aroma is mainly chocolate with roasted malts followed by a splash of coffee. This is extremely creamy in the mouth. The taste is chocolate and malts, a touch of coffee and anise, and a light hit on the hops. Dry finish. Tasty stuff.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Pours a dark dark almost black borwn, small medium brown head. Aroma is dominated by milk choclate. Flavor is tons of choclate, and roasted coffee finish. This is "my kinda beer"!

changxao (104) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Pours a dark opaque brown with a brown head. Aroma is malty with strong chocolate notes. Flavor is malt and bittersweet chocolate. Palate is rich and full, but is a little dry considering the style, makes a great desert beer.

One of the most unique aromas in all of beer. A very good stout to start dessert off right.
