Look: Pours nice, very dark, nice tan head on it. Seems just rightly carbonated

Smell: Very sweet milk chocolate

Taste: Sweetness of the smell does not shine through as strong. There is malt sweetness, but it is strongly counteracted by the bitter chocolate taste. Not exactly what I was expecting, but it was good.

Body: Thicker than your average beer, but to be expected for a 9.0% abv. Lingering finish, yum.

Pours an opaque onyx with a billowing, dense mocha head that lingers.

Tar, licorice, and milk chocolate form the aroma. Notes of malted milk balls dominate, revealing a lightly nutty malt character.

Flavor is reminiscent of campfire s'mores. Chocolate malt is slightly sweet initially, becoming roasty, slightly charred, and dry at the finish. Soft notes of dark fruit are subtle, and emerge late.

Body is smooth and creamy, fairly full, with minimal carbonation.

As advertised,a very chocolatey beer. There's a dark chocolate malt base, but the really impressive chocolate character is the slightly sweet milk chocolate. Good stuff, but definitely a dessert beer.

A most excellent Rogue brew. Ale pours a thick opaque black with a light dissipating tan head and fine beaded lacing. Nose of dark bakers chocolate and fresh black coffee like a fine black Bavarian chocolate cake. Taste is much like the nose, chocolate up front with roasted dark grains and a light coffee taste to the background. SOLID offering. Moderate carbonation and creamy mouthfeel round this beast of a brew out with a nice alcohol kick that is so well hidden it is not detectable till after the glass is done. NICE. A stout lovers dream, better yet in a growler, as compared to a bottle which has a little bit lighter mouthfeel.
