Amazingly black, creamy, thick, and deep chocolate flavor. Good chocolate stout!! PackPride (112) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2013
This is about as close to perfect as you can get for a big heavy chocolate stout. I aged this one close to a year, and I’m glad I did. This beer is super heavy on the chocolate notes with some hints of coffee in it. Lasts a long time on the palate, and finishes very well. Highly recommend! KegOstertag (92) - - JAN 12, 2013
Drank from bomber poured into snifter at home. Aroma- strong cofee and sweet chocolate notes. Appearance- very dark oily liquid. Light head. Taste- fermented dark chocolate with cocoa/cofee notes. Delicious. Palate- a little more booze felt now. Good stuff though. Replacement dessert. Overall- pretty darn good chocolate stout. I think i may prefer sweet chocolate beers better Imaena (2315) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JAN 9, 2013
Bomber. Beautiful beer - thick deep black liquid with brown head. Deep chocolate flavor with lots of malt complexity. Really interesting beer that could double as a meal. KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2013
750ml Bottle. The pour was a thick deep dark black with a large (2-3 finger) medium cocoa brown creamy head that reduced slowly, down to a thick puddled film with a medium collar and produced absolutely great drippy sticky lacing.
The aroma right up front was all about the chocolate with a bold roasted malt and a heavy doughy yeast along with notes of chocolate of course (dark and milk), roasted coffee and a slight hint of vanilla that was just barely noticeable.
The taste was really fantastic with a nice thick maltiness and a milk chocolate sweetness from the get go, becoming a just tad bitter with a mild coffee presence and a big dose of bitter chocolate towards the finish. The flavor lasted for an extremly long time following the swallow, with the chocolate taste fading away and leaving behind a mild bitter roastiness to linger for a while longer.
Mouthfeel was full in body with an exceptionally creamy texure and a soft carbonation.
Overall this is one fantastic tasting brew!! It possesses a ton of roasty chocolate flavor along with a mild smooth bitterness, which together does an awesome job of totally concealing the high ABV, making this a very easy to drink and extremely enjoyable brew...

Pours a deep brown with a creamy tan head. Deep roasty aroma with pronounced chocolate notes. Silky mouthfeel. Flavor is malt, coffee, and of course bitter chocolate. Chocolate is strong without being cloying. An excellent stout overall. chinchill (4929) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Growler. Pours nearly black with reddish-brown edges. Very little head and a little bit of spotty lacing (growler). Big aroma of dark malts, dark bread and dark chocolate. Flavor follows, but with hints of coffee and light smoke that linger into the aftertaste. Mildly sweet up front and mildly bitter in the finish. Hops mainly contribute some bittering. High ABV is fairly well hidden. Full body with light carbonation. dutchtuga (146) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2013
Pours very black, nice full creamy brown head. Leaves a great chocolate taste from beginning to end. With the Southern Tier Choklat the best chocolate stout. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle shared at Chad’s birthday. Dark black pour with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate. Taste is chocolate. Finish is chocolate. I really don’t know what else to say about it. Chocolate? kermis (12869) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2012
Draft at Beer Temple. Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is awesome but by no means complex, simply massive milk chocolate. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very nice in small quantities.
