On tap at Sydney's Local Taphouse US Beer SpecTapular.

Pours a deep, almost opaque black brown, jus with hints of lightness at the corners - looks like melted chocolate with blackberry syrup. Head is thick, heavy and big. Delicious. Lacing sublime. Hell yes, this is a beer!

Delicious cocoa nibs on the nose, sweet and dusty and rich. That's it, you have to admit, but god it's good.

Nice huge roasty chiocolate character on the palate too. Not very sweet, but the roasted rich bittersweet character of true dark cocoa-rich chocolate. Even a light resin peeping through. Very good.

Mouthfeel very suitable: creamy and smooth. Not terrible thick, but very good.

A very smooth, drinkable and delectable beer. Thankyou Local Taphouse for bringing it to our shores. It was better on tap here than in bottles in the US.

A: poured a dark as night black with a nice finger of brown head and left nice frothy lacing sticking to the glass.

S: there is definitely some chocolate presence on the nose with oat grains, very mild toastiness, malts, and slight lacto notes in the background.

T: the taste also had a nice rich creamy chocolate flavor alongside oat grain accents slight toastiness but it did seemed to have a very mild hop bitter bite and a good sweet malt balance.

M: the brew was full in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet, slight grainy, but smooth, and creamy finish.

D: it drank real good and was really surprised with the chocolate character the beer had. I've had this beer quite a few times and has never let me down.

Black opaque color with an outstanding head that dies down to small froth. Chocolate aroma, nice fluffy body with a malt/chocolate flavor, aftertaste is of bittersweet chocolate. A wonderful dessert stout. This is the first beer I've ever wanted to pour over ice cream.

Pours a dark brown, nearly black. The bottle calls it an 'ebony'. For a chocolate stout I find it as dark as it should be.

Smells like chocolate, chocolate, and dark chocolate.

Taste is not quite as chocolate but still there is chocolate. Hops and some malts. 90% chocolate, 9% hops, and the 1% rest. A nice overall pleasing taste, tastes much like Deschutes Brewery Obsidian Stout.

Solid mouthfeel; perhaps just a tiny bit over carbonated but it must suffice and the mouthfeel is still great.

Nearly to easy to drink. Could easily finish off two bombers in an hour. This is a nice strong brew.

An oversight, me never getting around to reviewing this beer. It pours a jet-black color with a big, smooth, and creamy head of foam. Nose is excellent, full of notes of dark, semibitter chocolate, lightly roasted, rich and appetizing... this is how my ideal hot chocolate smells on a cold wintry night. Taste is superbly chocolatey, though bordering on the too-sweet, balanced by moderately low hoppiness and a medium malt roast. Bittersweet finish.

Appearance: Dark as the night with a small (1/2 inch) frothy head. Lacing clings to the rim and stays.

Smell: Bold & sweet. Licorice and toffee notes seem to pour out.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Slight sweetness hits you at first, then a ground coffee smack, mellows down into a chocolate mix and finishes with a chalky sweetness of what seems to be chocolate syrup.

Drinkability: The first thing I thought was, "This would be great as a beer float!". And, I still believe that to be true, however, as a stand alone beer, this one is one of the better chocolate stouts. Not sure if I would have drank the whole bomber by myself...but if i had that ice cream...watch out! Another good one from the peeps at Rogue Ales Brewery.
