Many foods ignite our passions. Tastes so sophistacated and rich, they dance on the tongue and tantalize the palate so that we cannot help but be drawn into the magic of these flavours. Superb beer, skillfully crafted from the best ingredients is one of these stimulating foods. Chocolate is another. Combining these flavours in just the right balance only serves to enhance their powers. The combination of chocolate and beer is sure to put a smile on your face. Made by Rogue and for sale by Ezo Beer in Japan.

Bottle thanks to americanbrew. The smell is very chocolate, very nice, candy bar like, if you like chocolate you like this. The taste is more of the same with a nice bitter chocolate taste. The look is very dark black with a nice tan head.

sebletitje (9912) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2009
October 09 O-Town Throwdown, courtesy of juiceisloose. Pours dark brown, insane thick mocha head, golden lacing. Aroma huge amount of chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor was similar to aroma, a whole mouthful of pure chocolate goodness. Plain chocolate bomb, felt as chewing chocolate. Fairly simple in concept, but thick and tasty. When Rogue said chocolate, they were serious.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Bottled. Intense chocolate aroma, all over the place huge, delicious but one dimensional. Full, rich, chocolate flavor; one cant claim complexity at all like a good IS, but this is still incredibly tasty. Theyve really nailed the chocolate note in this. Id love to see how this one ages.

@ Monster Bs. I love the sharp, fresh hop flavor and the strong dark chocolate notes, but I dont taste a big difference between this and their regular chocolate stout.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2009
12 oz bottle. Dark brown with a brief, lacy tan head. Incredible aroma of dark chocolate and cocoa. Full bodied with a bright citrus tang. Taste starts with bittersweet chocolate and lime zest. Gets hot fudgy, carob coming in then grassy with pine. Dry finish with some mocha. Dripping with chocolate goodness but you still know youre drinking a beer.
