Reviewed 10/24

Roasty chocolate aroma preasant immediately upon pouring. The beer is black in color with a 1/2 inch tan head. Very rich chocolate flavor with a sweet finish. Creamy, although not on a nitro-tap. Definitely flashed back to a nice glass of chocolate milk.

Bizarrely overwhelmed by milk chocolate, nearly excluding every other flavor. Quite black in the mug. Brown around the edges. The modest head dissipates. More like hot chocolate out of the vending machine, or maybe the flavored powdered coffee "lightener."

If you like Hershey bars you won't mind it. After a while it tastes like wine with a bitter fruity note. But then its back to chocolate covered cherries.

Had on draft at Olde Peninsula tonight with my Wife. This one poured a dark brown, and I could smell the sweet chocolate coming off of this beer before putting it to my nose. The beer honestly tasted like Count Chocula (or any other chocolate puff cereal you can think of). I was pretty impressed with this stout given that I'd never heard of Olde Peninsula before today.

Pours a lovely shade of black with a thick foamy tan head that left thick layers of lacing the entire time I was drinking.

There is no doubt and no surprise that chocolate dominates the nose with a milky cream and caramel malt as well.

The flavor is also no big surprise but it is a big flavor. Chocolate is once again in the forefront with caramel and milk also in the mix. With a name like Stout Chocula, there had better be plenty of chocolate in the flavor and nose to go around and this lives up to it.

The nitro tap makes it very smooth which is only beneficial to the flavor.

The more that I have this beer, the more enjoyable it becomes. The nitro-tap is wonderful for this brew. I highly recommend it to any stout fan.

Reviewed on 6/27/2010. On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a small light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, lactose, and roasted malt. Flavor of plenty of chocolate and lactose, vanilla, and some roasted malt. Quite tasty, especially so if you are a fan of lactose-enriched beers.
