The addition of actual chocolate sets this beer apart from most other "chocolate" stouts. Nice cascade of foam from the widget-in-the-can. Aroma is more cocoa than chocolate. Goes down smooth and mellow with chocolate flavors followed by more traditional stoutish roasty malts. My wife’s favorite.
Black with large beige head. Aroma is chocolate oatmeal cocoa chocolate syrup also some shy dreamy hop notes. Taste is indeed double chocolate. Perfectly balanced between sweet and bitter. Could have a bit more of everything. Roasty finish. Nice. Bill Becker (1371) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 20, 2017

Pours from 1pt 0.9 oz bottle a near pitch black with a small tannish head of foam that shrinks to a fine layer with some lacing.
The smell is all chocolate and hot cocoa and it's a pleasure to my nose.
The taste is a delicious sweet chocolate with some slightly bitter cocoa notes that are a literal wonder on my taste buds and... it's so smooth and yet tasty that I just can't get enough of i read the drinkability factor goes through the roof! Imho, this is *still* the quintissential Chocolate Stout on the market today. Simply superb!
Thanks to Wasatch for this sample! the_beergery (108) - - SEP 28, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2017 Dark brown-black pour with thick and sticky tan froth. Node is light roast malts mainly, faint chocolate. taste is somewhat dry, light tart bitter, roasted malts, but little chocolate, surprisingly. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. googleimage83 (170) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2017
Sweet, milk chocolate, cherry syrup on aroma. Taste of chocolate, black cherry, amaretto. Palate is a big negative - way too bubbly, a touch too thin. Considering how much I enjoy regular and impy stouts, I'm not really finding these chocolate stouts to be up my alley. zacgillbanks (5450) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2017
Bottle from Morrisons, Birtley, Gateshead. Inky black with a thick tan head. It has a milk chocolate, vanilla and coffee flavour followed by an oaty, milk chocolate and roasted and red fruity finish. Very good.

Bottle. Small tan rim on an almost black body. Cocoa, dark chocolate, vanilla, nuts, some herbal hops. Medium sweetness, roasty medium bitterness. Medium body with a pearly carbonation. Adjuncts are not too organically integrated. Interesting. Wujas (11) - Ludwinowo Zegrzyńskie, POLAND - SEP 13, 2017
Butelka 0.5l, Wygląd nienaganny, piwo prawie czarne, aromaty palone, z początku było czuć żelazo, smak kawowy. trochę czekolady, dużo paloności. BeerLieutenant38 (156) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 5, 2017
Pours deep black with tan head. Good lacing. Rich dark aroma of dark chocolate, a bit of vanilla and coffee too. Sweetness is pleasantly subtle, some bitterness balancing as well. Long complex finish which seems to juggle sweet, bitter and dry all at once. Medium bodied, above average carbonation. A delicious Stout, and a great dessert beer. danrowland (27) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark, rich black with huge 3 finger head that lasts really well. Carbonation steadies as you drink but serves a laced shaker and a great palate that combines smooth and creamy layers but doesn't turn flat. Aroma is mocha and sweet nuts. Taste begins with big fizzy kick of espresso but gently turns to lactose sugars and sweetness as it travels to the back of the mouth. Finish is actually roasted malts and slight bitterness but after taste is all dark chocolate like the name suggests. Overall a fantastic stout that balances the indulgent flavours of a sweet stout with classic textures of real ale. AcctError498945 (2) - - AUG 27, 2017 does not count
