Velvety, tan head. Thick and bold, black looking elixir. Soft, dark and caramelized, roasted grains, for the aroma. Slightly watered down, dark roasted grain and dark chocolate flavor that is OK.

This beer is really good. Beautiful opaque look with a smaller dark khaki head. First sip and you already taste the chocolate. This isn’t your normal dark chocolate stout, this is a milk chocolate flavor and it is good. Probably higher on the calories so probably only have one, but if you get the chance to try it, do it.

Not really into chocolate but friend dropped off some stouts and this was one of them. Would not buy it but for what it is, it’s well crafted. Dessert beer. Makes me miss lagers.

Pours a very dark color with nice head and lacing
Aroma has very generous dark chocolate hints
The taste follows the nose with a well balanced very enriched chocolate flavor
A medium bodied decently carbonated beer
A good Stout

On tap at Das Beer Garden. Black body with a nice creamy khaki head. Smells of cocoa and roasted malt. Tastes of cocoa and roar malt as well. Milk chocolate without the milk. Roasted malt and light bitterness in its stead. Medium body and very drinkable. Low carbonation. Hitting some of the old classics and this does not disappoint.

1 pt. 6 fl. oz. bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Black colour, huge brown head. Sweetish aroma with strong notes of chocolate / cocoa, also notes of vanilla. Silky mouthfeel. The flavour is moderately sweet, again with dominant notes of chocolate / cocoa and vanilla, but also a distinct hoppy bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Not bad at all.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A: Pours a nice rocky head. The head looks like chocolate milk so great start so far. Color is almost completely opaque. The little light that filters through shows a dark brown.

S: Smells of luscious chocolate. A good amount of sweetness, almost like frosting. Nice nuttiness and the malt character really comes through.

T: The cocoa is so present, but never seems to take center stage. The milky creaminess starts and is just so mellow. The roasted malts and the bitterness builds beautifully until the hop spice pops the bubble and clears the pallet. It finishes with a long drawn out chocolate aftertaste. The hops are a bit distracting and I honestly wished there was a lot less hops. It balances the drink and cleanses the palate, but I never feel like I get to fully bathe in the richness before being snapped out of it.

O: This is the adult version of a chocolate milk. So smooth, so drinkable. A clear flaw that changes this drink from indulgent to simply great.

Poured from a bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Dark pour... nearly black with big foamy mocha head. Great lacing.

S: Smells fantastic... big roast and milk chocolate.

T.F: Bittersweet roasted malts. Chocolate is present but not nearly as rich as the aroma would lead you to believe... kind of syrupy. Mild coffee... a bit of hop bittering and pine to boot. Lighter bodied than it should be. Fairly smooth. More bittersweet processed cocoa at the finish.

O: This was decidedly average... and nowhere near as good as the rating would have you believe. Looks good. Smells good. Taste... meh. There are WAY better chocolate stouts out there.

Disappointing. Smells and looks good, but the chocolate flavoring tastes like the chocolate syrup served at a buffet. I’ll skip this the next time I see it.

Great chocolate stout! i agree, balance between bitter/sweet is off to my palete, leans more bitter for style... not sure if it's Hopping or to much roasted malts.. i think overly hopped! but damn tasty. brown to tan head that lingers awhile, nice aroma, good chocolate in taste, medium mouth feel. carbonation right on! great, could be tweaked to super great! I've turned many people towards dark beer with this one! 50/50 men, women! their dubbel chocolate... an easy 5!

Beautiful very dark brown/black appearance. Nice tan head that stays thought drinking it also has great lacing. Smells of dark chocolate, slight smoke, and roasted malt. The taste is as described heavy chocolate taste upfront then the roasted malts and oats come through gets quite bitter on the finish. Too bitter in my opinion could do a better job of balancing the sweet and bitter. Mouth feel is smooth, creamy, medium bodied and quite dry on the finish, nice amount of carbanation.

Bomber from Albertsons. Near black pour with small creamy beige head. Rich dark chocolate aroma. Taste adds light bitter roast to the chocolate. Velvety feel.

The pour is jet black with a tan & frothy head. The aroma is of dark chocolate & roasted malts & the taste follows suit. If you're looking for stout with chocolate added to it then look no further because this beer delivers. There is a date on the front of the bottle. I like chocolate stouts but i'm more of a coffee stout drinkers so this beer I would not care to revisit. Cheers! A-

Bottle poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours dark brown, nearly black, with a slight mahogany tint and a frothy cocoa brown head that settles to a firm layer and leaves some thick lacing.

S: Lots of chocolate, cocoa powder, bittersweet, and milk, a little vanilla, roasted malt, a little char, a touch of smoke, earthy, slightly piney, toffee sweetness, and a hint of dark fruit.

T: Roasty, big bittersweet and milk chocolate, a little vanilla, some char and faint smoke, earthy piney bitterness, toffee sweetness, and a touch of dark fruit on the back end, mostly cherry and plum.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly creamy.

O: Definitely lives up to the name, super chocolate-y. My main gripe is how assertive the bitterness is. I feel like if they backed it down 10+ IBU it would be even better.
