This wonder of a beer (no not wunderbier....wonder of a beer) pours a black as night black color with a thick puffy orange and dark brown head littering my glass. Heavy degrees of carbonation here..a surprising amount. The aroma is lit obviously with heavy chocolate, wood, espresso, cocoa, vanilla and other sweet scents. The flavor is much of the same with heavy dry and gritty chocolates balanced with a nice meld of hops in the finish to end bitter and dry. Some sweet vanillas and chocolate grains finish this heavily carbonated beer as well. Good thick mouthfeel, well rounded, very very dry, but that was to be expected. Nicely done chocolate stout!

MullMan (1099) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2004 black body with just a little red at the edge of the glass. cascading head to a dark tan color, very creamy and foamy. long lasting with thick layers of lacing. very sweet chocolate malt nose, like a chocolate covered sugar wafer! also sweet chocolate and malt flavor. medium mouthfeel and lively to mild carbonation. bitter and dry hop taste second, then dissapearing finish and no aftertaste. kind of porter-like. very drinkable and not a problem to finish the bomber to myself.

Not as good as the hazelnut, but a very good beer. Not as heavy on the chocolate as I would have liked, but still satisfying.

The name says it all. Like a cold hot cocoa. Beautiful head with chewy texture. Had a slight gingerbread-like aftertaste. Not overly bitter at all (as stouts go). Perfect brew for cold winters and holiday gatherings. Paired great with cigars and friends.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [22 oz. bomber] Dark black color with a big and thick brown head. Rich and potent aroma of sweet malts and lots of roasted, bittersweet chocolate. The taste is very sweet and thick. Sweet malts and roasted chocolate throughout with a very thick and chewy body and a smooth, sweet aftertaste. A little too sweet to drink all the time, but good nonetheless.

bottle. big black colour with a brown mocha head. everything about the aroma screams chocolate! WoW! Flavour has loads of bitter chocolate and satisfying roasted malt. Very smooth thick body. I couldnt see myself drinking this too often, its very filling and difficult to get through an entire 660mL bottle.

Black as sin with a runaway head. Seemed very bitter to be til I realised it was a more a dark or bittersweet chocolate flavor--maybe with some mocha? Very full feel, and sits heavily--a dessert in and of itself.

Bottle. LCBO. Pitch black, big milk chocolate coloured head diminishes surprisingly fast. Big dark chocolate and cocoa aroma, slight notes of roastiness. Flavour is of dark bitter chocolate over a sweet foundation. Nice full bodied mouth feel, sits a bit heavy on the tummy. Nice beer that you don’t really want a whole bomber of to yourself.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2006 TAP and wonderful. Poured deep and dark, Aroma was toasted and roasted. Full mouth feel with choclate kick. I love the dark brew, and this was special. re-rate: 11-15-02 Damn, I failed to mention just how thick this was, you could stand a knife in it. Very chocolate, bitter and dark.
