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!

Very nice stout from ST. This is readily available and relatively inexpensive. Considering that, this is an awesome beer to pick up. Huge chocolate flavors with some light coffee notes in the background. Rich and creamy mouthfeel. Roasty flavors abound. A solid, solid beer.

Choklat pours a black color with a small but lacing, long lasting tan head. There is a big chocolate aroma. The taste has big, huge chocolate flavors; not to sweet, with a nice mellow roasted backbone. Great body, great flavors, not too sweet. Overall, its fantastic strong chocolate flavors, great roasted backbone.

Got to try this on tap at the local bar. Simply astounding. Here goes:

A: Beautiful. Large, dark head that leaves adequate lacing. Pours pitch-black as well.

S: Wow! This smells great! Loads of toffee, caramel and...wait for it...a ton of milk chocolate. This beer reeks of chocolate, and I don't mean the bitter, coffeeish kind either. Pure sweet milk chocolate.

T: Follows the nose, making the beer excellent. Milk chocolate is quite robust; almost like eating a chocolate mousse cake. Will definitely have this beer in the future, judging by just the taste alone.

M: Beautifully thick creamy.

O: An impressive beer from ST. Will definitely have again.

This is just a smooth, chocolaty brew that is perfect for dessert. One of the best chocolate stouts I've had so far; right up there with Rogue's Double Chocolate Stout. You can't even tell it's 10% ABV. Nose is delightfully pure chocolate. It's like drinking a delicious candy bar.

Good stout. Good head. Not big on chocolate but a bottle is just the right amount for this guy.

BOD 9/19/14. Pours dark as a starless night. Above average head volume, average lacing and retention. Very rich nose of milk chocolate with chocolate malt notes underneath. Full bodied with a rich creamy texture. Slightly above average carbonation with a touch of effervescence in the middle and a reasonable burst for this viscosity on the finish. The very rich taste profile is intense, not very complex but well balanced. It begins with a sweet milk chocolate explosion that slowly fades into a mild bitterness in the middle. The bitterness is a blend of roast and hops. As it begins, the chocolate malt notes of the nose are evident. The finish leaves a nice moderate alcohol burn at the back of the throat. As the chocolate and bitterness fade, a light grain alcohol flavor emerges.

Fantastic thick stout. This is definitely a dessert beer. Very heavy chocolate, but it goes more toward a dark or bitter chocolate.

My first rating for this beer gave it a 4. Months later I have lowered it to 3.25. Not a drain pour but there is too much chocolate.

On tap:
Pours black with tan fluffy head. Edge is medium thick, lacing is moderate. Nose is wonderful milk chocolate, mainly. Roasted notes sit behind it, with no more than hints of coffee, hazelnut, oatmeal.

The chocolate is more balanced with roasted nut flavors that come through more on the tongue than the nose. Mainly typical sweet stout flavors, dark roasted nuts, coffee, cocoa nibs. The bitterness is a bit woody to me. The feel is maybe just over medium, carbonation not playing a big role.

A very enjoyable beer. It's not as sweet as you might think from the name and nose, but is actually nicely balanced. Definitely a beer to have when it's available.

Appearance- Dark, with a thin head but good lacing and retention

Smell- Big boozy smell followed by chocolate and dark fruit

Taste- Like a very dark fudge milshake. Big cacao and baking chocolate flavors.

Mouthfeel- Very creamy, low carbonation.

Overall- Good dessert stout, very similar to Mokah. Slightly less sweet than Mokah but less complex flavor. Probably not a beer where you would want to drink a whole bomber alone.

750ml bottle. Pours dark deep brown. 2 full fingers of head that lingers. Smells of hops, barley, roasted barley in particular, coffee, dark chocolate, sugar. Heavy and thick in the mouth. The bitter chocolate predominates. Roasted barley is very strong. The dark chocolate and roasted barley fight in your mouth. Definitely a double imperial stout. Little burn on the way down. Finishes with that traditional kick back of hops and roasted barley with an almost chocolate burp. While I like it, it is no Founders Breakfast Stout. There are other imperial stouts I would prefer. Definitely good though.

Appearance: Pitch black and opaque. An aggressive vertical pour yields a finger of tan head that seems to hang about a decent while.
Smell: Milk chocolate, dark malt, dark fruit and a hint of floral notes.
Taste: Lactic acid, fresh coffee, coco nibs, Dutch process coco powder, raisins and prunes.
Mouthfeel: Acidic, tingly, medium body and slightly creamy
Overall: High marks across the board. Not my favorite chocolate stout but in my top three.

A: poured into a snifter to a jet black beer topped by a finger of dense tan head that fades quickly and leaves no lacing.
S: smells of bittersweet and dark chocolate with a little bit of roasted malt
T: taste is chocolate spanning the spectrum from sweet milk to bitter dark and roasted malt. swallow is more chocolate, burnt sugar and roasted malt with a slight alcohol tinge toward the back
M: thick and velvety in the mouth with soft carbonation and a slightly dry finish
O: This beer is everything it claims to be with a decadent flavor and full body. extremely viscous and goes down smooth. Very well crafted and a pleasure to drink.

Super good stout. The nose is all chocolate. The draw is semi-sweet chocolate finishing with the smooth stout profile. Really like this profile of stouts.
