chinchill (5342) - 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 (14716) - 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. pdx76 (651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2012
On tap at rogue Newport - nice frothy head. Think creamy hot chocolate! Perfect stout to finish the meal with.

Euston Tap. Opaque black - brown beer, little tan head. Palate is silky smooth with nice fine carbonation. Mild minerals and errr yeah - chocolate! Dark chocolate, chocolate gateux cream and chocolate wafers. Creamy dark chocolate! Finishes smooth and silky with a little carbonated nip. Slightly maltesers aftertaste. Pretty bloody good. I bolted this one!
A: Wow, this looks inviting. Pours absolutely jet black with no light peeking through whatsoever. Rocky khaki to light brown head leaving beautiful, elegant lacing on its way down. DMLINAZ (358) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 24, 2012
S: Dark fruits (plum, blackberry), baker’s chocolate, caramel and toffee, a hint of coffee grinds.
T: Mimics the nose--dark fruits, mostly plum, with a healthily competing dark chocolate kick and a little punch of espresso bitterness that lingers on the finish.
M: Slightly less full-bodied than the appearance and aroma would suggest but nice and smooth.
Delicious. Rich and chocolaty taste as you’d expect, with a bitterness and coffee on the finish. thetmaxx (927) - West Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Poured from the bomber. OMG, dark chocolate aroma and flavour. This is dangerous! Finishes bitter sweet. Amazing! Slipstream (2709) - USA - DEC 22, 2012
On draft at The Hop. Loads of chocolate flavor in this beer - they weren’t kidding about that! A little brandy too. Nice!
