Used some in a Beeramisu and had the rest with the desert. Rich, chocolatey and a perfect desert accompaniment.

I have never tasted a better chocolate stout. The balance between the stout and the chocolate is perfect

Poured from a 750ml at 45F into a room temp 12oz tulip. No Bottle Date. Released January 2018.

Appearance: Pours black with huge dark tan head, completely opaque with small brown floaties that look like little pieces of milk chocolate. Leaves a little lace here and there as the glass empties on the way down.

Smell: Every time I take in the aroma from the glass before a sip I get something different, but everything chocolate - Mom's hot cocoa on a snowy school's-out day, Grandma's chocolate chip cookies, bake-sale brownies, semi-sweet morsels right out of the bag, summer-time hot fudge sundaes... If you're a chocolate fan at all, this smells awesome! There's also some smoke and a hint of cinnamon. The smell of this brew is probably my favorite attribute. I wish there was a Glade plug-in that smelled like this!

Taste: Simply put, this is a decadent liquid chocolate for grownups. There's also some smokiness, kind of a bacon smokiness, and in fact, it goes great with bacon! Seriously, try the combo. Now I'm hoping a brewer comes up with a chocolate-bacon stout! Absolutely no heat from the 9% ABV. This is a treat you could share with someone who swears they "don't like beer" and open their mind to approaching beer from a different perspective.

Mouthfeel: Creamy smooth with only a little carbonation tingle. Goes down very easy leaving a sweet cocoa finish that fades. A little bitterness just like eating high cacao content chocolate bars.

Overall: "Life is like a box of chocolates..." Forrest Gump would be proud to take a bottle (or a case!) of this to Jenny. A delicious experience that will bring back all your yummy chocolate memories.

Poured a cloudy dark brown with thin dark cream head that didn't dissipate. Dark chocolate with a hint of sweet malts on the nose. Taste followed aroma with a hint of honey on the finish. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A very tasty brew, chocolate taste without being too sweet.

Pours a deep brown with a small head leaving a fairly thick ring and minimal lacing.

The smell is chocolate, dark malts, and a little dark fruit underneath.

The taste is very chocolate filled with dark malts and coffee on the finish.

The mouthfeel is medium bodies and medium carbonation.

Overall a surprisingly enjoyable beer. It has good chocolate flavor without being too sweet.

Pours solid black,not to heavy on the carbonation but a fairly thick creamy feel. Aroma is milk chocolate,dark chocolate,a little vanilla,coffee,and malt. Taste is very similar to aroma,a slight bitter bite from what I think is the coffee and bakers chocolate taste. A very good beer that isn't short on flavor and hides the 9% abv fairly well

Deep, dark brown with little toasted brown head which leaves no lacing.

Flavors are chocolate and chocolate and hops and alcohol. Very smooth.

Pretty good.
