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 Bman1113VR. Shit load of chocolate in the aroma. Bitter baking chocolate flavor mixed with candy bar. Finishes with a slight burning chocolate/alcohol aftertaste.

Cavie (4586) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Bottle courtesy of BMan1113VR. Opaque brown pour with red touches on the edge. Fat chocolate aroma with tinges of alcohol strength. Taste is a bitter chocolate with some roasted coffee ground. Finish is mostly bitter dryness. I wanted this to be a little sweeter.

12 oz bottle via a trade with Americanbrew. Shared with the Dallas Crew. Pours with a deep black body and a fading tan head. Body coats the glass when swirled. Smell is very much like STs Chokolat. Tons of milk chocolate, Hersheys syrup, sugar and cocoa butter. Taste is not as good or as strong as the aroma had portrayed. Seltzer water mixed with cold "hot chocolate" and not much else. A bit of bitter chocolate on the back head. A bit too lively carbonation and a bit too dry for the style in my humble opinion. Very low in residual sweetness for a chocolate impy stout.

Deep brown color with a tan head. Big bakers chocolate and mocha aromas. Smooth medium body. Great blend of sweet milk chocolate, dry bakers chocolate and bitter blackened malts. Intensely tasty stout !

Moter oil black Amazingly think and velvety, like biting into warm fudge sweet but balanced bitterness. Truly a dissert beer if one was ever brewed!

Bottle thanks to JoeTheYounger shared with Hophead22. Thanks Joey.. Pours black with a mocha head.. Aroma is coco powder and milk chocolate.. Flavor is chocolate and slightly roasty. Reminds me of the regular chocolate stout just a little bigger.. Medium body with lots of carbonation.

#10, making this official, 12oz bottle courtesy of JoeTheYounger through DuffManSW. This is pitch black, you have to tilt the glass quite a bit to get any light showing through, head was a nice chocolate color, light chocolate. Aroma is pure cocao powder, really like a glass of chocolate milk, like opening up a container on nestle Quik, pretty nice. Taste is super chocolatey, its like eating a handfull of those ovaltine crystals, very chocolatey, pretty dry as well, very roasty, pretty damn good. (976)

Good, rich flavor, though a little too reliant on the chocolate. Looks nice, well-balanced, very easy drinking for 10%.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Dark black pour, frothy brown head that thins like an oil slick on top. Rich, chocolatey aroma, like chocolate syrup. Taste is similar: chocolate syrup with roast and mellow alcohol.

Black. Tan head. A ton of chocolate with enough roasty bittersweetness to balance. Full to full/medium body, smooth carbonation. Tasty.
