Bottle pours very black with decent tan head. Definite chocolate in nose. Cocoa flavor up front, roast and sweetness follows. Creamy texture. Finishes acidic like some brewed with coffee. Easy drinking and relaxed.

Roasty and chocolate aroma. Flavor hits on notes roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla creme, mild coffee. Palate is disappointing. Lighter and dryer than i expected. Very drinkable and enjoyable (and very affordable) without being great.

12oz bottle gifted by AirForceHops. Thanks, Chris! Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, vanilla... Kind of reminds me of a Creme Egg. This is dryer and thinner than the aroma would indicate. Dark chocolate, a hint of licorice and mild overextracted coffee. Carbonation too heavy. Mouthfeel really takes this down.

12 oz. bottle from a 4 pack. Purchased at Liquor Outlet Wine Cellar, Boonton, NJ. Deep brown in color, thin head. Aroma consists of melted chocolate candy, mild coffee note, and mild dark fruit hints.

Weak roast with plenty of chocolate throughout the sip. My only issue with it is the thin body. For the ABV and flavor I expected it to be more full in body. However, I will say the chocolate that is advertised is here in a decent character. Also a tad high on the carbonation. Still drinkable and somewhat enjoyable.

Black, dark brown head that fades quickly. Sweet chocolate nose. Chocolate dominates, mixed with roasted malt before some slight bittering hops enters at the end. Velvety smooth with small bubble carbonation. Would be better with lower carbonation.

The Brewer of Brothery Love upped the value of Love Stout with the addition of dark chocolate. This aroma was so strong with the scent of dark, expensive chocolate. It had the flavor and mouth feel of having a chocolate melt in your mouth (like letting a nib of some high end European chocolate melt in your mouth), and there was a bitter hop bite on the back end. This is a great brew to enjoy in the winter season. The bonus was picking this up at $29.99 a case at Bell Bev in South Philly. Cheers!

ElCapitan22 (361) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Pours jet black in color. Has absolutely no lacing or head retention. Smells like chocolate and tastes like it too. It reminds me of carbonated hot chocolate.

3.5
dlovell2 (2090) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and dark fruit. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, dry red wine, and vanilla with a smooth chocolate finish.

3.4
Voodoo (658) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a light brown head which lingers a bit.....aroma of chocolate, little else......taste is flavorful dark chocolate, slight vanilla notes, very slight bitterness and a touch sweet but no backbone at all. Way too thin for this much flavor and off balance.
