draft. pitch black with a dense medium-dark tan head. nose is heavily sweet (cocoa puffs cereal, chocolate syrup, godiva liqueur), approach is heavily chewy, heavily sweet, chocolate forward with light roast and light spice. weighty and cloying but as a dessert beer it’s a phenomenal experience. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 3, 2010

Sampled on tap at the Alibi Room, pours black with a tiny head. Aroma of sweet dark chocolate with little else. Flavour is rich chocolate (much more so than the regular Chocolate Stout), with a wonderful, well-incorporated sweetness. Most excellent variation of the original.

Draft; black with a creamy tan head and thick sheets of brown lacing. The nose is huge with fresh milk chocolate, roasted barley and chicory. Coating mouthfeel and a syrupy body. Balanced however with lots of bittersweet chocolate notes. Finishes toasty and clean. Yum. troopie (2560) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Draught. Poured midnight black with medium brown head. Much lacing. Full chocolatey aroma. Flavour is chocolate and roast malt, a real mouth filler. Very full body. Lasting malt finish with much chocolate. This is a dessert in itself.

Wow, its like they put some hershey’s syrup into it like chocolate milk! Great aroma, although the real chocolate doesnt come through in the aroma, but hits you like a ton of bricks on the first sip. Perfect black color with a brown head, very drinkable, the taste hides the abv a little too well, its like a beer float, so delicious, then BAM! your feeling the alcohol, oh well, just makes it that much more enticing. kpresley77 (147) - Jackson, Georgia, USA - AUG 28, 2010
My taste in beer has really evolved in the last two years since I’ve been on ratebeer and started trying different beers. I used to hate stouts because of the roast flavor but stouts can be so diverse and different. The aroma is Chocolate and light roast malt. If you close your eyes it smells just like a cup of mocha coffee. First taste is sweet, roast and chocolate. The finish is a little bit bitter but Chocolate still lingers. Top 3 for me!

On tap at Brewforia in Meridian, I’D. Deep black with a dark brown full creamy head. Big and very chocolaty vanilla aroma. Like drinking a tootsie roll. Lightly roasted dark malts, lots of sweet milk chocolate flavors, a little of that Porter sourness and a little charred bitterness at the end. Trang full body with a smooth almost oatmeal smoothness. More chocolaty and sweeter than even which held the title for years as far as my experience holds. Tasty dessert beer.

Bottle pours deep brown/black with a dense khaki head. Aroma is huge chocolate and reminds me of an authentic east coast malt. Flavor shows the same with traces of coffee and some booze. It’s as if sweet milk chocolate and dark bitter chocolate made sweet love. Overall body is full, soft, moderately sweet and finishes moderately bitter with some citrus hops. Good to cure that chocolate fix. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 25, 2010
