Dark brown pour with creamy head. Aroma and flavor (shockingly) of chocolate and medium-dark roast malts. Something oatmealy about the creamy palate, which pleased me greatly. Pleasing sweet finish. I love chocolate, and I love this beer. weisinator (67) - USA - FEB 5, 2005
Love at first sip. Pours an opaque brown color with a brown smooth head. Aroma of chocolate and malt. Initial flavor of hershey’s chocolate syrup followed by malt sweetness with a light bitter hop finish. Leaves a pleasant chocolate ice cream aftertaste. henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 5, 2005
This fine bottled beer pours a deep, dark brown with a small, fine tan head. The head lasts for a while leaving nice lacing on the glass. Amazing! The initial aroma is of chocolate (duh!) but that quickly gives way to the smell of Canadian Whiskey (Crown Royal)! I smelled them side by side and they are identical! The flavor of bittersweet chocolate immediately comes to the front. It settles to a dry sweet chocolate/raspberry middle and finishes with a nice brandy-chocolate warmth.

Pours dark dark brown with a small tan head. Big chocolate aroma. Roasted and chocolate taste. Nice lacing on the glass as well. Creamy texture. A great stout, but this doesn’t come close to equalling Rogue Chocolate Stout. Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Pours very creamy, looks like mocha until the nitrogen bubbles up into the head, then it’s very dark brown with a thick off white head. Aroma is just chocolate and malt. The flavor doesn’t have anything more. Mouthfeel is way too smooth. I had it in a 14.9 oz can, and the widget makes it feel a bit like a pub ale, only thicker -- I’ve never enjoyed that weird nitrogen bubbling. Overall a very boring beer.

Pours rich, creamy and thick dark chocolate with a small tan head. Has a thin falling film of head. Huge dark roasted chocolate malt aroma with a hoppy nose. Initial sweet creamy milk chocolate with dark notes then dark and hoppy finish. Full-bodied creamy palate.

I smell strong alcohol content. Not a bad thing, but......I don’t want to " know " it. Looks great, but dissapoints. Watery, and too smooth, if that’s possible. SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2005
Lots of carbonation in the pour as well as the mouthfeel. Too much for me - I like stouts nice and silky. Decent chocolate aroma and taste but rather watery throughout. bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Delicious chocolate flavor. Very smooth, with a good creamy mouth feel. My bottle had a distinctly metallic aroma, which thankfully was no where to be found in the flavor. An excellent beer. Guitarsessions (21) - Crestline, California, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Pours kinda like.... watered down melted chocolate. Nice semi-sweet chocolate flavor... with a little bit of coffee tones. Very creamy and rich. Nice mouth feel. Good beer.
