crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Certainly delivers on the chocolate aspect. A nice brown body with a tan head that faded away to fast, but had some nice lacing. Aroma had a nice hit if cocoa powder mixed with some semi-sweet chocolate. Did remind me of kids cereal. There was a hint of grain in there. Flavor was sweet not cloyingly sweet. chocolate dominated the flavor, it was like drinking a malted milk. Smooth body and a creamy presence. Somewhat dry on the finish. Although on dimensional it was still good.

mviljamaa (97) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - APR 26, 2017
Pours with a good amount of brown foam. Color is very dark brown, pretty pitch black. Chocolatey aroma has coco pops, vanilla, vanilla Brunberg kiss, old moist wood floor, wool felt. Palate is well balanced and light. Taste is also chocolatey and has clear coco pops, some lemon balm, some sweet peppermint, some honey. Both aroma and taste are very delicious and the entire drink is perfect and nice.

A sweet milk chocolate and vanilla aroma, poured from a bottle a dark brown color with a short lasting tan head, slightly foamy with nice lacing. Tastes of vanilla, milk chocolate a bit like Nestles Quick. A watery feel a sweet thin chocolate finish.

pivnizub (10454) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - APR 16, 2017
Flschla: Very deep amber coloured, smaller creamy and stable tanned head; distinctive sweet nose of toasted malt and - mainly - ("artificial") milk-chocolate and sweetened cacao-powder; moderate to solid sweet flavour with a delicate bitterness, light to medium bodied, relatively soft; slightly lingering sweet-bitter chocolatey finish. Heavily perfumed with artificial aromas, not my cup of tea. Meh...

MoritzF (9759) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 7, 2017
(bottle, 35.5cl) Dark brown, almost black coloured hue with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Sweet chocolate-laden aroma with a tinge of vanilla. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a soft carbonation. Soft malt character with loads of milk chocolate, vanilla and a nutty edge; moderately sweet and restrained bitter finish with lasting chocolate and slightly nutty flavours. A grand desert. 07.IV.17

Brun stout med cremefarvet skum. Dejlig duft af chokolade og noter af kaffe. Smagen er jeg ikke vild med.

This American stouts flavors will make you feel like youre at a campfire. The rich chocolate flavor, the taste of whipped cream, caramel, and marshmallow makes this beer not overly boozy tasting, but a balanced American stout. It is not a beer easy to find, but if you are into chocolate, it is a great choice.
