It pours black with a beige head. The aroma is big on chocolate with some vanilla. The taste is chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and fruit. The chocolate is definitely the star here. It's smooth. It's not too sweet. I wouldn't session it though. It's a good change of pace or dessert beer. BarelyCynical (14) - - DEC 10, 2017
Dark color and sweet aroma are give always to this beer’s nature. Flavor is chocolate and Caramel. Good not great

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 (12oz bottle) AROMA: soft chocolate, nutty, bark/wood/forest APPEARANCE: deep dark reddish brown, almost black, mocha colored head TASTE: creamy chocolate, some coffee/mocha, a bit sweet, cream, vanilla PALATE: medium body, not extra heavy, creamy, smooth, touch of dark dryness on the end OVERALL: yummy, sweet, milky coffee and chocolate. Kind of like a dessert version of a stout. Something different and fun, but maybe not everyone's choice because of the sweetness. Mep3222 (1666) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2017
This is delicious for a Samuel Adams beer, cocoa roasted malt aroma and flavor. Full bodied smooth beer with slight sweet chocolate finish and cocoa bitter balance. Impressive. BeerBenji (19) - - DEC 2, 2017
A good bock, love the title for it. Definitely has some chocolate undertones.

Chocolate addict here. I will begin by saying this is, IMHO, Sam Adam's best offering. Bottle pour. Strong chocolate aroma. Black in color. Taste is, well, chocolate, malty, satisfying. The chocolate does seem to leave the palate quicker than I'd like, but when it's there, it's excellent. OnTheTrail (594) - Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2017
If you like chocolate, give it a try.
Pours almost black, nice brown head. ,Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, malt, earth. Taste is richly chocolaty, like an elegant chocolate bar, a hint of earthy, floral hops, slightly sweet, hinys of dark fruit. Very nice. StoutBeerReviews (257) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2017

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Pours a dark brown with a khaki head. Aromas of chocolate and caramel. Taste the same with a little malt sweetness. Not bad. Light to medium palate with a little lacing in the glass. oobawa (1804) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 4, 2017
Pretty much exactly what it says it is, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Gentle caramel malt notes give way to a milk chocolate center, hints of raisin and fig with slight hints of java and floral hops. Finishes semidry, but the chocolate never leaves the palate, leading to a cocoa-dusted fade. Too confectionary for my tastes, but drinkable. Pours dark brown with a minor beige head and slight lacing. Chocolate nose, no more, no less. Good texture keeps the sweetness from growing clingy and artificial. Okay.
