I was hesitant to try this state based on appearance in the store. I purchased it from Total Wine in Gilbert AZ and they don't care many of College Streets beers. The name sold me and it's a stout so I really had no excuse not to try it. Especially since it was only $1.49.

Appearance was as expected. Thick and rich and non-transparent.

Smell was not remarkable by any means.

The taste made up for the smell 10 fold. This was heavy in coffee and chocolate. It was sweet, rich, and wonderful. My only only regret was not purchasing more of them. I suggest this beer for sure and thru the winter expect to grab a couple of them in my weekly beer runs.

Thanks,

I bought this because it's an in state stout, and I loved the description. I didn't expect much, and was very pleased. It was very well balanced, and the coffee and chocolate tastes didn't clash with the barley at all. Overall it was a medium mouth feel, a little lighter than I expected. I'd give it a go again, it's a good beer...and a great outdoor beer.

WIFE TAKE: That devil is pretty, but why Chocolate beer? Is it like a dessert?

Picked up a single at Fry's as part of a mixed sixer back in early February for $1.50. No freshness date.

Beer poured black with a beautiful brown head that is hanging around.

Nose has hints of chocolate sweetness and not much else.

Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, and hints of toffee. It is a bit on the sweet side as designed but not in a cloying fashion.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied but not overly smooth.

Overall the flavor profile is very nice, would pair well with a brownie or chocolate cake.

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a pint glass.

A - Dark, dark, dark. Standard stout. Slightly khaki head that remained throughout. Incredible lacing.

S - Coffee and almost like a milk stout. Malt all the way.

T - Malty in front, malty in the middle, malty in back. No alcohol detected, nor hops.

M - Heavy, just as expected by the taste. Just as much carbonation as expected by the style.

O - A standard microbrew stout. As a stout fan, I'd definitely drink this if it were on tap. Not exemplary, but certainly worth trying against foreign stout beers. This beer doesn't do anything well, but does everything pretty well. Giving it an overall 4 might be a bit much, but I definitely enjoyed it.

Rather nice beige head in the globe glass. Pleasingly sudsy in the mouth when you pour another finger. A whiff of chocolate.

Malty and slightly sweet. Grainy and a little chalky with plenty of roasted malt. This could almost be considered the Sweet Stout style. Winey flavors with a sharp edge. Well balanced with some malty sweetness, a touch of hops, and that faint tartness. A little burnt sugar. Fairly dry finish with some pleasant bitterness. Sudsy to the end.

Quite drinkable, well-made, dark beer without any special interest. From the 12 oz bottle at AJ's Fine Foods in Chandler.

Enjoyed in a big shaker pint at the Mellow Mushroom.

Flat black, without a hint of light coming through. The head is a thin, silky layer of sandy tan.

Light aroma with mild sweetness. Toasted cocoa; a touch of vanilla and oats; a very subtle licorice note.

Same deal in the flavor. A somewhat stale raisin note in the front meets smooth black licorice. The swallow delivers the oats, bitter chocolate and a hint of roast. Finishes smooth and sweet finish, but it's a little too subtle throughout.

Big, creamy medium body contrasts the weak flavor. Carbonation is a little high, prickling the tongue painfully. Very clean, with no alcohol.

Sweet Devil’s a very drinkable stout. I just wish there were more flavor to be had.

Appearance: Coal black brew, thin head of deep brown foam that dissipates quickly with zero tracing.

Smell: Rich cocoa, wheat, barely there hops. Sweet and heady.

Taste: Taste backs up the smell: Notes of chocolate, dark barleys, wheat. Aftertaste is slightly acrid and smoky. 6.66% ABV (unless that's a marketing gimmick) but I didn't detect much alcoholic heat in the mouth.

Mouthfeel: Not as heavy or oily as you might expect.

Overall: This is a nice stout, mild when chilled but becoming more complex and interesting as it warms to room temperature. I bought a sixer in July; may have to save a couple bottles for the colder months just in case I can't find it again.
