Poured on tap into a "pint" glass. Pours dark reddish black with an off-white head. Smells of dark roasted malt with sweet gingerbread. Tastes of chocolate with a nice cookie added to it, a nice winter combination. Beer is light bodied, a tad watery, but nicely carbonated. Overall a very good beer.

Serving type: on-tap

I've had this been on tap and out of the bottle. I prefer it on tap but it's excellent both ways. I could drink this stuff every day and it's one of the best chocolate stout beers out there. People have said it doesn't taste like a Berger cookie but I think the chocolate part does and it's well balanced with the vanilla

A- Dark brown pour, settles into the glass as a cola-colored body. Thin, bubbly tan head that settles quickly and leaves a ring around the edges of the glass.

S- Hints of baker's chocolate, some toasted bread, vanilla. Not huge aroma, but a nice nose.

T- Roasted malts, hints of chocolate, some dark chocolate, maybe a hint of sweetbread or vanilla too.

M- Pretty creamy, medium bodied, medium carbonation. Right in the sweet spot feel and abv-wise.

O- It's a nice chocolate sweet stout. Not huge flavors, not a huge nose, but very well done with both. The local love of Berger cookies may have given this one unrealistic expectations, but this is a good beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- Black with a two finger tan head.

S- Bitter chocolate, cocoa, roasted coffee, touch of vanilla.

T- Follows the nose, but not as strong, again bitter dark chocolate, cocoa, touch of coffee.

M- Very smooth and creamy, medium body.

O- Would be better if the taste was bigger, but still an enjoyable chocolate stout. I could see myself picking this up again.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a borderline black color. The khaki head is about two fingers high; personally, I could use a creamier texture, but that's just my aesthetic preferences talking. It also has decent retention.

S: Well, this brings some decent chocolate character...it's definitely not Choklat in that department, and that's forgivable considering it's a single. Some slight espresso, cream, and even floral hops make themselves known. I've never had Berger cookies before (blasphemy!), but I can tell there isn't much in the way of a cookie note here. Otherwise, this aroma is rock-solid.

T: The chocolate flavors here are frontloaded on the palate. After it immediately hits the tongue, the flavor shifts towards a nutty, almond-y tone, before a dry and slightly bitter finish. Probably my favorite feature here ISN'T the cookie flavor - that's too mild and frankly disappointing - it's how well the floral hops balance the chocolate sweetness.

M: Very creamy, which is nice. Rather thin...which is not-so-much. However, it's thin body and dry finish makes it very easy to drink. I could almost chug this if it were less sweet. Of course, then it would fail as a dessert beer, which is what this is all about.

O: The lack of a defined cookie character is disappointing - it makes this come off like a regular chocolate stout in its stead. Realign your expectations for this one: the cookie addition is more a gimmick in an otherwise solid chocolate stout, and doesn't have much of an effect, good or bad. While I have to dock ever so slightly because of this, it's still an enjoyably quaffable dessert beer.
