Pour is dark brown with a tan head, minimal lacing. Aroma is big chocolate, light booze, faint fruit, malt. About as good as it gets. Taste is relatively one dimensional, heavy chocolate. Malt and booze also make an appearance. Mouth is full and creamy. Finish is very smooth and a little warming. Overall a solid stout. Not something I could drink too often, but nice on occasion. luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2009
This one is way over the top with chocolate. Pours a thick jet black with a brown head that fades relatively quickly. The nost is straight hersheys chocolate. I am not sure it even tastes like beer. This would be great for someone who disliked chocolate stouts and you wanted to try and hook them on it , because it is pure chocolate. This is definately not my favorite, and I think the oatmeal is much better. Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2009
On tap. Beautiful dark chocolate colored body. Wonderful chocolate cake aroma and taste. Like drinking the best brownie you’ve ever had. I have nothing bad to say about this except I don’t have a case of it. Extremely decadent and rich. Amazing abcfan (920) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Wow, wonderful chocolate aroma on this one! Its like chocolate cake dipped in chocolate. Very smooth drinking, the 11% ABV is hidden well. I may have to pick up a few more of these. cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Black silky pour with no head at all. Woah very obvious chocolate aromas are apparent as well as vanilla and a distinct raspberry quality which is amazing. The depth of complexity on the nose is apparent. Similar experience on the palate, except with a more pronounced bittering dry dustyness which complements the smoothed out malty sweetness. Delicious but maybe too decadent for my tastes as one bottle is perhaps too much; but still this is an amazing beer and would work great for dessert.

On Tap-Judges Bench-Ellicott City Md-Dark brown w/a good size tan head. Strong chocolate aroma, Flavor of chocolate is most obvious, it’s a deep quality chocolate flavor which is brewed right into the beer, not some cheap cocoa mix poured in. Had a bit of a malt flavor as well. Rich mouthfeel w/a long, full, chocolate finish. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Tasted 11/29/08. 22oz bomber. Pitch black hue with a beige ring of head. Wow! What a nose. All chocolate. Dark chocolate, fudge and chocolate icing. Full bodied and delicious! Big malty characater and a ton of chocolate flavors. Ample, yet blended. Well masked alcohol presence. Not overtly sweet, but big chocolate notes. Mild hops that add a touch of pine in the finish. This is by far the best Chocolate stout I have ever had. Gimme more! Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2009
22oz bottle 9/18/08(Courtesy of Hopscotch during the CU/WVU throwdown). Pours a pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate and more chocolate. Taste is again chocolate and more chocolate. This full bodied brew is very well balanced. If you like chocolate then you will love this beer. Great brew. dchmela (3064) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2009
A special treat from BConley for New Years and my 900th rate. Pours thick and black, very oily with a thick tan head. The most wonderful chocolate bar aroma. Very complex and alluring, most people tasting this took extra time to take in the aroma. Less chocolate bar in the taste, very nice thick body. Was so sad to finish the bottle...

It is a good thing that this bottle clearly states "A stout brewed with chocolate" because the name, and everything else about the beer, just left me guessing. The pour gave me a nice dense cream head. The aroma is possible the most chocolaty beer I can thing of. Yeah, this smells just like a slightly roasted, caramelized chocolate bar. Flavor is less chocolaty, but still strong with it. There is more of a sugary side of it, bringing a chewy and viscous mouthfeel before the final bitterness comes in to end the experience. As this warms it just gets more and more chocolate-tastic. It doesn’t come off as a beer with cocoa powder mixed in (Sam Adams Chocolate Bock anyone?) this tastes like a chocolate stout should.
