What I like so much about this one is that it smells like milk chocolate, yet manages to pull off a bitter semi-sweet chocolate taste. And then you add the Espresso. All the things I like in a stout ( minus the vanilla ). Great dark hue and smooth n silky.

And the pleasantness doesn't end there. Oh no, it has one of the longest lasting after-tastes I've had. It just goes on and on and on. You think you have a few coffee beans stuck in your gums.

The only drawback is that there is a slight trace of booziness that doesn't really fit and gets in the way.

And guys, when your significant other says,"Order a case", you know you have a winner for a beer. My appeasement offering when I go on a hop binge.

This is by far one of the most enjoyable dessert beers in the world!

Just by the pour in a glass you might think it is a fairly typical stout. Nice dark color. Decent head.

The smell is chocolate and roasted malts and everything you would hope it would smell like.

The taste doesn't skip a beat. Chocolate milk. Not overly sweet, but no real detectable hops which I think is actually a really good thing. If you've ever had Youngs Double Chocolate, this follows the same idea but it even more complex yet drinkable.

I can't think of any other way I'd want it to feel in my mouth, so I have to give it a 5. It has a minor coating quality. I would imagine the actual chocolate involved is to thank for that.

This is world-class in my opinion. If there is a better chocolate stout or "interesting" stout for that matter, I haven't found it yet I've had thousands of commercial beers.

The quintessential chocolate stout, but with more than just that standout aspect. There’s also a dash of mushroom, chipotle, vanilla, roast, smoke, and allspice with enough high alpha acid hops to cut through the sweetness. A few have said that the body is just a tad thin for all that flavor, but I disagree. A unique masterpiece that puts Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout in its place.

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malted chocolate, powerful. Taste is delicious, chocolate, malts, a touch of bitterness, to easy drinking for 10% abv. Feels creamy and tasty in the mouth and overall a top notch beer worth checking out.

Black with a short fizzy tan head. Little retention. A little oily and slightly less viscous as I thought it'd look.  

Great big chocolately nose! Sweet and rich milk chocolate. 

Follows the nose nicely but even better. The best and brightest chocolate flavor of any beer I've had. I thought it was gonna be too sweet but it's quite nice. 

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation. 

Overall this is one of the best dessert beers I've ever had. Amazing chocolate flavor.

22 oz bomber, bottled on 11/28/11, poured into a snifter.

A- pours black and thick, produces very little tan head.

S- waves of chocolate, includes a sweet cocoa powder aroma as well as a much darker chocolate fudge brownie aroma, some roasted malts but little char or smoke, it smells like a delicious chocolate dessert

T- follows the nose with just massive amounts of chocolate, not quite as sweet, has a dense center of fudge with sweeter lingering cocoa towards the finish. Lots of roastiness provides some bitterness to keep things balanced, but again avoids powerful charred flavors.

M- medium to full bodied, smooth creamy feel, pretty easy drinking

O- An excellent chocolate beer, definitely up there with the best choco-stouts, this makes for a great dessert.

22oz bottle into tulip snifter.

Pours black with a thick, foamy light brown head that dissipates fairly quickly.

The aroma is of rich, fudgy chocolate. Reminds me of a rich chocolate cake. While not really complex, it gets points for nailing the chocolate notes.

The taste follows the nose, with pure chocolate fudge notes.

A medium body with average carbonation.

A good Imperial Stout. Definitely the most rich, chocolaty beer I've experienced. A real dessert beer.

Pours a three-finger brown head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Nose is chocolate, flavor is sweet chocolate, bakers chocolate finish, higher ABV is hidden (label has 10%). Nice IS. $9.49 for a 22oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.
