Overly sweet. Cloying. Disgusting. Vomit inducing.

I love a GOOD chocolate stout; ie: Brooklyn Brewery's seasonal - Black Chocolate Stout.

However, this stuff is foulness personified. People can moon on about the composition and characteristics but what matters is the taste. This beer should be poured down the drain. You couldn't pay me to drink this crap.

Harmonized with bonbon milk. Appearance: black, opaque, no foam perhaps be stupidly cold; Aroma: very light chocolate, roasting; Taste: I felt more chocolate in the aroma than in the flavor, but helped enhance harmonization, hops this full bodied. With the chill last night fell well!

Very nice chocolate and coffee aromas. Pours black with tan head. Medium to heavy bitter taste. Full bodied with creamy texture, soft carbonation, and bitter finish. Pretty good, but slightly to bitter for my taste.

Has smokey taste with chocolate notes. Very smooth finish. Very much a dark beer.

Partial best by date of 2014.
Poured from a bottle into a tumbler on 12.26.13.

A: Motor oil with a foamy tan head.

S: Loads of malty chocolate.

T: Chocolate, malt, some smoke in the aftertaste.

M: Creamy smooth. Velvety.

O: Very balanced. Sweet, but not icky sweet. It has an edge to it that balances out the sweetness.

Poured from a nitro can into a mug..

A: 4.25 - Pours very dark with a CREAMY one-finger head. It's cool to watch it all float up to the top after the pour.

S: 4.25 - Malt with a lot of sweet, milky chocolate.

T: 4.5 - SO good! Malty with chocolate upon chocolate.

M: 4.25 - More watery than I remembered, but awesome nonetheless. This is a beer I tend to drink pretty fast since it goes down so easy. Super creamy, super drinkable.

O: 4.3 - You get what you pay for with this beer. You buy this expecting chocolate and that's exactly what you get. Very tasty beer that I think mostly anybody could enjoy.
