Very thick, a must-try for stout fans. Smooth taste, the chocolate flavoring is just right. Unfortunately I didn't quite finish my bottle when we arrived downtown for the night, so when we got there I had to dump it. But then I gave the bottle to a friend who is really good at throwing stuff, he launched it pretty far and it shattered impressively.

ANything with chocolate in it HAS to be good, and this stout is no exception. I think 'double' chocolate is an overstatement, but this beer does not disappoint. Trying this has peaked my interest to try other chocolate stouts.

I really enjoyed this fantastic stout. I do not think it was anything remarkable, but it left me curious to try other chocolate stouts. This would be a wonderful dessert drink (especially after a heavy italian dish with a white sauce). Most likely I will buy this again (unless I find one that is better).

Refreshing in that the taste was not overly sweet; a 'bitter chocolate', if you will. Very well integrated and sultry. The proper name, as the bottle says, is 'Luxury Double Chocolate Stout'.

Delicious, smooth stout. Good chocolate caracter, but still with some bitterness.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2006 If you are looking for chocolate, you will sure find it here! You can taste it throughout. I am partial to porters and stouts anyway, but this is very good stuff. This actually tastes better than Rogue Chocolate Stout, but it scored lower because of the faint aroma. Update: Tried this beer in nitro cans on 6/11/06 and it is a good bit better.. more chocolate comes through in the aroma and flavor.

What a smooooooth beer. Creamy and delicious, with almost zero aftertaste. Very mild, agreeable finish. Nice roastiness comes up after the beer warms in the room for a while. This is the stout to drink when you are in a mellow mood. The best stout to turn a novice on to.

Decent chocolate and mocha flavors, but I was really expecting a more robust flavor. In general, it was kind of thin.
