from my notes:
22 oz bottle poured into tulip glass
Poured a dark coffee with a mocha head of two fingers that slowly fades to a heavy patchwork lacing through out the experience. Dark chocolate and roasted coffee on the nose followed by taste of expresso beans in dark chocolate surprisingly not very sweet but a dry cocoa and rich maltyness. Also present in the mouth very rich with out the unnecessary sugars. One of the best overall chocolate stouts.

Very excited to try this beer and it didn’t disappoint. Black, thick pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate, smoke, coffee. Chocolate flavor with some coffee and it is very smooth. Highly enjoyable! This is a mainstay in my fridge; enjoy it on all occasions.

22oz bottle, pours jet black with a milk chocolatey head that holds good retention and leaves tons of lacing on the glass. Aromas are cocoa, chocolate Twizzlers, kind of musty, with hot chocolate powder. Tastes are chocolatey again, with molasses, oatmeal cookie, chocolate Twizzler again, with some hop on the finish that prickles the tongue. Mouth-feel is full-bodied, smooth and creamy, with a slight dryness on the finish with some dark cocoa powder. Overall, I have wanted to try this for years, but never did. It's good, but I'm not big on the artificial chocolate flavors I'm picking up here. Luckily it has so many other things going for it, that they can be ignored to a degree.

Poured in a clear glass goblet, very dark and the stout developed a half in head, very good lacing all around the glass; sniffed and got a strong scent of chocolate milk and roasted coffee beans and alcohol, this is a very inviting brew. Sipped a small amount and swirled around my mouth, I got a full range of complex flavors; bitter but very drinkable, a bitter taste remains in back of my mouth. I drank the first half glass and paired with a mild cheese. Delicious! HOG

Pours black with some brown chocolate/coffee highlights, with a caramel colored head.

Big chocolate smell backed by roasted malt and bitter coffee.

Taste is bitter chocolate up front reminiscent of cocoa powder, followed by roasted malt with some sweet caramel notes. Bitter coffee is subtle and there is some bitter herb flavor from the hops. Finishes dry and crisp. An excellent beer, it has big chocolate flavor without being sickly sweet. Very nice.
