First quarter of the beer was tolerable. After that it was an overwhelming Hershey syrup like taste.

Very dark brown to black. Very nice foamy head, cappuccino-like. Started around 52 degrees. Chocolate was most present in the aroma, but not dominating, with some roasted malt. Taste was consistent with smell, but with a bit of coffee, too. Was semi-smooth, wish it was creamier. Alcohol was a little more present than I would have liked. Feel was on the thinner side, but not too bad. Different strokes for different folks. If you like chocolate and a smoother ride, I suggest, for example, Samuel Smith's over this one, but if you like your chocolate tamed by a more traditional beer/ale taste, then give it a try.

(Nitrocan) Malt and chocolate aroma. Black body with a creamy tan one finger head that coats the glass. Creamy dry chocolate taste with a touch of sweetness. Light bitterness. Feels thick and silky. Clean smooth finish.

A: Dark, almost black color with cream colored head. Good lacing

S: Chocolate, coffee

T: Sweet chocolate, gives way to a bit of booziness, coffee aftertaste

F: Medium to full

O: Good beer. Not quite as good as some others I've had but definitely worth a shot.

I don't like chocolate but for some reason really like this stout. You can taste the chocolate but it isn't overwhelming.

My favorite pub has this on tap and I must say that it is definitely one of my favorite stouts ever, nice and chocolate-y.

A: Pours a deep, dark brown (almost black) color with an active two finger head of caramel colored bubbles that slowly dissipates and leaves a layer of foam floating on the surface. 

S: Very deep roasted malt and chocolate aromas, and I detect a nice hint of coffee in there as well. 

T: Taste follows the nose well. This beer is what it claims to be, and not much more. Very strong roasted malt and dark chocolate flavor. The coffee is still in there, and it all finishes slightly bitter. Nothing complex to be found here, this is a chocolate beer start to finish.

F: This could have been better. It's just a little too thin, it needs more body to truly stick to your mouth like it wants to. Carbonation remained sufficient throughout. 

O: I enjoyed this beer plenty, but I can't say it was everything I wanted it to be. Too little body and a slightly underwhelming taste experience left me wishing I had grabbed a bottle of Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout instead.

Definitely a quality brew. Dark black color and standing creamy head.
Strong taste of chocolate/cocoa and a hint of coffee. The chocolate aftertaste goes into bitterness.
Just not really my kind of beer. I prefer to enjoy the chocolate and beer separated.
