Great aroma, like semi sweet (not dark) chocolate pieces. Pours black with thick head. Nice chocolate taste / well balanced.
I thoroughly enjoyed this Blackwater Series Choklat Imperial Stout. The taste and chocolate flavor was exactly what I was looking for. So many try but this delivered deliciousness. :-)

It is a very nice smooth beer. It is very good! Rate beer has it at 100! Well I do not think it is that good. But still a very nice well put together beer. The flavors and the whole package. It is very good! Sorry not a 100 in my book. GregMooreNH (247) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 13, 2017
Pour thick black with medium, dense head. Aroma is dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Taste is rich, sweet chocolate, warming to a bitter, dark chocolate. A smooth, even finish. A great desert beer. jmjordan (5) - - NOV 11, 2017 does not count
It is apparent why this is described as a dessert beer. Though it is sweet and rich, I would not preclude it from other occasions. Holiday celebrations come to mind. During the high heat of summer, this could also be refreshing.

I got bottles from both nutbrown and orbitalrOx. Thanks Alan & Don!!
It pours a very dark brown with reddish hues and a 2 finger head of tannish foam.
The smell has great notes of milk chocolate, toffee, and a touch of coffee. The chocolate is ruling it here.
The taste is...so damn tasty! First and foremost, it's the chocolate. I'm tasting both sweet, which has the bigger role, and dark chocolate which, along with a small amount of coffee, give me some bitterness that helps prevent the over all flavour from becoming *too* sweet but hell, sweet is surely is and I'm loving it. There's plenty of toffee flavour here as well. Wow. I know that 1 bottle at a sitting will do it for me but the 22 ounces in that bottle are disappearing at an alarming rate. ;^)
The full mouthfeel and lowish carbonation is working its magic while the abv just gives me a little warming after the swallow. Great job in hiding the 11%, for sure.
Btw, the head retention is better than average and there's plenty of lacing hugging my glass.
Bottom line: This is, by far, the most chocolate-y brew I've ever tasted and is a real treat. If you have a chance to try some, do so!!

.Appearance: Black, lingering one finger brown head.
.Aroma: Roasted dark chocolate, coffee notes, malt.
.Taste: Rich dark chocolate combined with sweet milk chocolate, roasted coffee, cocoa, slight bitterness especially on the finish.
.Mouthfeel: Creamy, Rich, full bodied. minimal carbonation.
.This is a well crafted stout. Enjoyable throughout. As soon as it's poured you can smell the chocolate sweetness. Perfectly sweet, with a slight bitter aftertaste. Taste lingers. Alcohol is slightly noticeable, but in a very enhancing way. Very creamy, velvety texture. Full body. Awesome choice for after dinner. Solid A.

Nice beer, leans towards a hoppy stout. The "Chocolate citrus flavor" is Definitely a very LIGHT 'hint' as advertised. If you're an IPA or Belgian fan, this is a great fall beer for you!
If you're like me & you like to actually taste the flavors advertised on the label- please don't waste your time!nuts, roasty, roasty, Bacchus66 (999) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2017
Bomber. Pours thick dark brown, nearly black with a full tan head. Nose is all chocolate and dark malts. Flavors are rich dark chocolate, sweet malt, coffee. Full bodied. Some hops comes out on the long, smooth chocolaty finish. Big delicious beer, an enticing dessert. BrewBroFla (34) - - MAY 6, 2017
Very thick and black with little to no head. Aroma a wonderful blend of milk, chocolate and vanilla with some dark roasty earthy notes. Excellent bitter sweet chocolate and vanilla taste. Also very creamy and milky. Great dessert beer. So thick and rich it would be hard to finish if it wasn’t for the fact it is so delicious. Westy1130 (110) - New York, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Pours an almost gloopy motor oil black. Huge Belgian chocolate notes with hints of vanilla and coffee. Very similar to Young’s Double Chocolate.
