A bomber, split with a friend, and poured into a CBS snifter.

A: Dark as the night, with a half finger mocha head that quickly dissipates.

S: Cocoa powder and more bitter chocolate malt dominate the nose.

T: A very sweet, light stout. Thin, fake chocolate flavor with bitter malts mid-sip. The finish is a very light chocolate, with a lingering bitterness.

M: Light, thin, highly carbonated...too carbonated.

O: Fairly unimpressive. It's pleasantly light if you're looking for a
light, sweet stout, but it pales in comparison to other chocolate stouts, such as SouthernTier Choklat.

Reviewed Jan 8th, 2012

A: Engine Oil black/brown, thick, little visible rising carbontion but a solid 2 finger head, dark for ahead, tan w/ a tinge of crimson orange.
S: Chocolate soda, fairly sweet, I see they use real chocolate, thick creaminess.
T: A hair bitter, but certainly chocolately w. a milky sweetness, on the fence about the added chocolate. Feels like cheating, but I do appreciate it actually tasting like chocolate. Slightly strange chocolate flavor though.
M: Edge of tartness, carbonation gives it a sharper texture.
O: Good, nice balance.

Poured into a pint glass. Reviewed alongside Harpoon Chocolate Stout.

A: Dark brown/black with two-finger, tan, creamy head that lasted a while. Fantastic lacing.

S: Chocolate and subtle roasted malt. Some hops too.

T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Chocolate and very nice roasted flavor. Somewhat spicy hop flavor too.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

O: Love how the hops complement the chocolatey goodness. Good lacing and mouthfeel too. I preferred this over the Harpoon.

First had: on tap at Rogue, Portland, OR

Poured a dark brown-black with a minimal tan head; no lacing to speak of. Milk chocolate in the aroma and a bit of roastiness. Taste of bakers' chocolate, sweet, but powdery, more subtle hints of coffee and nutshells, with a little bitterness in the finish to offset the sweetness. Mouthfeel was smooth, but a little light for the style, I thought. Still a nice drinker overall.
