Undated bomber given me in December 2013 and aged one year.

This is a chocolate ale for those who like their chocolate dark and not very sweet. None of the Hershey's milk chocolate effect here! The chocolate is one element in a mix of roasty flavors, but the chocolate doesn't overwhelm the stout. The beer is just a little tart, and has a bit of bitterness (like coffee bitterness, not the effect of hops). This beer is not sweet at all. Very tasty.

2012 batch consumer in January 2014. Held up well. Cocoa bark, hints of clove, slight banana, still packs a lot of flavor. Nice.

A - Poured an oily jet black, formed a nice finger of consistent, medium-tan head. Nice solid lacing.
S - Malts, dark chocolate and a little bit of sourness, most likely due to it being Belgian style.
T - Initial sour bite of carbonation develops into rich toasty malt. Dark bittersweet chocolate is present, but unfortunately only at the very end aftertaste and on the exhale. Drinks more like a very malty Belgian than a Belgian-style stout in my opinion.
O - It's an alright stout, nothing to write home about. Personally I'd change the name to Chocolate Belgian Dark Ale because that's more what it drinks like.
V - 22oz bomber, medium value.

Bottled 09/2103. Poured into a tulip glass. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, opaque, with a nice three finger fluffy tan head. Great lacing. Aroma is chocolate up front, with some raisin, molasses, fig, and dark roasted malt notes. The taste was nearly identical to the smell, with great chocolate flavor and some nice almost sour yeast taste. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, very smooth, with a somewhat dry finish. Overall, this was quite a nice beer, next time I'd like to try one fresh to see how the aging treated this beer.

Enjoyable chocolate stout, better than most versions of this style. A good choice to pair with dessert.
