wow! very nice. very chocolate-y. very under-rated, I think... i'm not afraid to call it what it is- a Trader Joe's Special! okay..... but it's pretty darned good. low abv, but that transfers to taste (hopefully). I do not understand the "75" rating.... maybe because it IS Trader Joe's stuff... but this is pretty good, in my opinion, on a neutral evening, and with un-biased taste buds...

I tasted quite a bit more chocolate than many of the reviewers here, but generally concur that it falls short of what a chocolate stout can be. For the price, not bad at all, but quite a few other comparably-priced Trader Joe's offerings surpass it.

Not enough chocolate, not enough black patent malt. But not bad by any stretch.
