COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark opaque body with garnet highlights. Pours creamy with a light tan head. Draught is served on nitrogen. Bottle carbonation is moderately low. Creamy mouthfeel from the nitrogen. Reminiscent of lightly roasted coffee finishes with a definitive gourmet chocolate flavor. Bittersweet chocolate and pure chocolate liquor from Peters Chocolate Company are melted directly into the beer. Lactose sugar is added after the boil to impart the signature creaminess of a sweet stout. The gases used in packaging create subtle differences in flavor and mouthfeel.

Onslow (1466) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2017
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear ark reddish brown brew with two fingers of tan head that settles down to one finger. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is cheesy vinegar-ish farmhouse notes, tart fruit, very faint toasted grain and chocolate. Taste is tart fruit and sweet malts up front transitioning to a watery sweet cocoa and malty middle. Ends with sour fruity and metal. Palate is thin. Maybe this is starting to spoil. Bottle is stamped 00217 for whatever that means - Jan 2, 2017 perhaps? Meh.

Strangebrewer (1272) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
bottle. Poured opaque brown with a mocha head. Sweet treacle aroma. Lighter than expected body, thin carbonation, slightly tart finish. Flavour of roasted malt, and again a sour note, some bitter chocolate.

crossovert (12225) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2015
355ml bottle. A brown stout, low in body, light tartness, just a shitty milk stout.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2015
black body with red highlights, no head, slightly sour aroma / chocolate malts, flavor is overpowered by sourness - maybe this is just a really old bottle? Theres no decipherable date stamp, so who knows... Ive got a feeling that this beer will be the cause of some gnarly gas tomorrow

Bottle. Pours a dark brown. Aroma and taste are sweet chocolate; a bit too much sweetness.

tmoreau (4151) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Shared 12 oz. bottle labeled with the yellow barn & red ribbon, poured to small snifters showing a black/brown color, with ruby highlighting, brownish tan head foam that reduced quickly to a ring & film, and light spots of lacing. The nose was cocoa, but also hints of Slim Jim, light soy, and a touch of cardboard. Light bodied, with fair carbonation, the flavor was more agreeable, with subtle roastiness & cocoa, mellowed by a touch of silkiness to the mouthfeel. A bit past its prime.

tcon25 (788) - Duvall, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle pour at home, Sent to me from Chicago by a friend. Black pour, no head. Roasted coco and coffee aroma, slight bitter taste, you taste a little chocolate in the finish. Solid stout enjoyed this one.

Campy877 (189) - Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle. Deep brown almost black with a deep brown head. Aroma is typical of a stout but the taste as the name suggests has great chocolate flavor. Good blend with coffee flavor making almost a milkshake taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong cocoa and chocolate. Thin mouth, light roast, strong cocoa, dark chocolate, bitter finish, very good.

Pretty good, and I would get this again. However it was really hard to pour. Nice chocolate flavors.
