This beer pours a jet black color, with a thin brown head. The head fades slowly, leaving a good lace.

This beer has a strong sweet chocolate aroma. Wow. It smells like cocoa powder. I also detect some coffee. It is subtle though. That is pretty much all I smell.

The taste is the same. Chocolate. Some coffee, but mostly it tastes like carbonated chocolate milk. Very interesting.

This beer is smooth. Carbonation is just right. It leaves a chocolate aftertaste. The alcohol is well hidden throughout this beer.

This beer might make a great session beer except for the high alcohol content.

Overall: Thank you very much monsterfat for this one. It is probably one of the best beers I have ever had in my life.

This has literally got to be the best chocolate stout made.

I've never sat down and drank the entire 22. Usually because i'm making things with it; and drink what is left.

This brew makes makes a mean Chocolate Stout Ice cream; seriously a huge hit. Stout pancakes is another family favorite to make with this.

One of my favorite things i like about this brew is the ABV. The alcohol ALWAYS shines through when putting it in food. I'll be the first to admit that $9.00 for a 22 in my area is a bit much. But it's worth it.

This is an outstanding beer....Amazing....the brewer gets an A+++ for nailing what the intention is/was. The beer poured an opaque black with 1/2 finger of rich tan head that laced all the way down the sniffer glass. The scent was Nestle Quick....sorry to name brand but the smell was NESTLE QUICK!!!! The taste was a semi sweet chocolate mixed with a slight roasty malt and enough bittering hops to cleanse the pallet. The mouthfeel was a full bodied ale with smooth carbonation. Overall....awesome...a perfect desert beer...a perfect winter warmer....a perfect fireside chat beer...did I mention it smelled like NESTLE QUICK!!!

I had this beer for lunch, maybe I should have had it for dessert! It has an incredible chocolate signature, very smooth, very drinkable and it packs a big punch!
