Black pour with beige head; strong chocolate aroma; big chocolate flavor; medium mouthfeel where alcohol is well hidden; sweetness and booze...nice.

L: Pours very dark brown with a cream tan head with large bubbles.

S: Milk chocolate and malt! Very creamy smelling!

T: Creamy milk chocolate with dark malt and baker's chocolate, mainly. There's a sweet toffee taste to it thoughout that really breaks up the chocolate. It kind of fizzles to a bit of Coffee at the end.

M: Med-heavy without a lot of carbonation. It's just heavy enough without being too heavy or cloying. Very smooth and velvety.

O: Solid offering, but not as balanced as I'd like; it kind of dies at the end when compared to the glorious start.

Well the name doesn't lie. Picture a giant chocolate cake punched you in the mouth, well this is it. An extremely dark beer since it is basically a giant sack of chocolate melted into a bottle. I am not a big fan of chocolate so this wasn't my style, but I can appreciate why people would like it as it was smooth and I enjoyed one. Felt like brushing my teeth immediately after

From a bomber into an Alesmith Goblet.

L- Scary dark. Minimal head that fades quickly leaving no trace of it's existence.

S- Ummmm, chocolate.

T- Well.....chocolate. Dark chocolate, white chocolate, bitter baking chocolate and maybe some fudge. Starts off sweet and finishes bitter.

F- Nothing at all.

O- A bit one-dimensional...but hey, that dimension is chocolate!! Would probably be great over vanilla ice cream.

On tap in a Chimay goblet at the Wurst Place, Seattle. Chocolate chocolate and more chocolate. This beer tastes like they melted a Hershey bar in the glass. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla. Best chocolate beer ever. I'm not sure I want this more than once every three years but hey it's fun stuff. Mouthfeel is very smooth. The bartender suggested a scoop of ice cream would go well with this beer. Hops? Who needs hops?

A - Pours black with a beautiful 1/2" tan head that settles to a tan cap.
S - Wonderful chocolate aroma!
T - Solid chocolate flavor, slightly bitter finish.
M - Great mouth feel, nice and chewy, beer sticks to your mouth for a good long time.
O - I love this beer. This not is not just a 1 glass desert beer, I had no trouble finishing the bomber by myself in an hour. Very drinkable. I need to go buy some more.

Absolute chocolate bomb. Delicious but not something I want to drink often. Very similar to Rogue Double Chocolate in its utter lack of subtlety.

Thin, quickly dissepating, light brown head. Dark brown to black body with sleight red hugh to edges. Aroma of rich cocoa and dark chocolate. Light carbonation and boozy up front, carbonation fades to dark chocolate syrup, dark roasted malts and smooth mouth feel. Slight coffee notes, medium/heavy body, slight bitter spice from hops. Overall a great beer.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Dark, black, light brown head
S: Dark chocolate/coffee
T: Like dark belgian chocolate with a bit of stout mixed in
M: Silky and smooth
O: I won't rate many stouts on here as I don't care for the style, but I tried this one at a friend's house and I loved it. Definitely needs to be enjoyed slowly. Stout characteristics are more prominent at colder temps, but the chocolate increased as it approached room temperature. Didn't bother to cool it at all for my second tasting, chocolate flavor perfectly balanced. Great for a cold day to sip on. Will buy again next year!

Dark bakers chocolate aroma and flavor. Velvet smooth body. Dry finish with a touch of nutty bitterness. It's like drinking a chocolate birthday cake.

I thought the beer looked and smelled nice. Had a decent mouth feel, but I don't get the love. This was a drain pour for me.

Smells entirely like a chocolate bar, and tastes like a chocolate bar cut with some alcohol.

Good lord, this one is over the top with chocolate goodness! Right away an aroma of chocolate liqueur, then a thick, creamy milk-like texture and chocolate malts are heavy in the flavor. The 10.0 abv is almost the only thing that cuts through the chocolate. Have i mentioned the chocolate? Nice bitter aftertaste lingers. This one is outstanding!

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. Very dark brown. Foamy khaki 2 finger head.

S. Chocolate like the name says. Slight malt.

T. Chocolate chocolate chocolate. If you like chocolate you'll like this. It actually has milk chocolate notes up front like a hot chocolate and some dark chocolate bitterness on the back end. Really cool. Looking it a lot.

M. Medium to heavy body. Very light carbonation. Creamy in the mouth. Finishes slightly dry.

O. OK I'm a chocolate guy. But this beer is awesome. All the elements of this beer make sense to me. It's chocolate. And it's done very well. Will be getting this again.

Smell is complete chocolate, no alcohol. Taste is way too chocolate forward for me. A single glass, as a dessert beer, is the only reason this gets a 4

Choklate is the word. And this is one of my new favorite stouts. Taste like a big tootsie roll. With background hops and some slight oak. Really easy to drink

Bottled 11/27/13 (about 1 year old)

Dark brown pour with tan head.

Unsurprisingly, smells overwhelmingly of sweet baking chocolate with underlying notes of coffee and roast.

The taste is big on milk chocolate and cocoa. The sweetness is followed but not completely balanced by roasty, bitter malts. The booze is mostly covered but is apparent in the finish.

Medium bodied with thin but creamy carb. It has the consistency of chocolate milk.

This is a pretty tasty sweet chocolate stout. It works well but I'd like it to see it live up to its dessert beer standards and be a little thicker/richer.

Wowww does this one taste amazing. Imagine drinking liquid chocolate dipped in coffee.

This blends in amazingly and is a great brew at 10%. Took 2 hours to finish the bomber. Enjoying every sip!
