Definitely getting the chocolate. The 10% ABV is perfectly hidden. This is really tasty, but not as good as their thick mint imperial stout in my opinion. Try it for yourself & tell me what you think. Cheers! A- (90-94) score range

On tap; poured into a snifter.
Appearance- gorgeous midnight black with a thin tan head that leaves very minimal lacing!
Smell - a boozy chocolate milk that doesn’t require much effort to pick up it’s delicious aroma!
Taste - rich chocolate and booze up front and throughout the session; chocolate milk with a touch of bourbon!
Feel - heavy sipper that is almost an after dinner liqueur as much as a beer!
Overall - a big, bold, heavy desert in a beer glass, absolutely fantastic!

L - Pitch black with a thin medium tan head that leaves very minimal lacing behind.
S - Sweet, rich chocolate up front with slight hints of roasted, toasted malt and barely.
T - Follows the nose: Sweet, rich chocolate up front and throughout - tastes like a mix between milk and dark chocolate - but probably heavier on the dark chocolate. Notes of roasted/toasted malt and barely more towards the back end with slight notes of toffee and vanilla.
F - fuller bodied with a light amount of carbonation. Thick, rich, decadent, luxurious, and smooth - the whole nine yards in terms of what a dessert stout should feel like.
O - This is a really great dessert stout - personally I prefer Thick Mint and Choklat Oranj, but the original is still a great choice for anyone looking to enjoy a dessert stout.

Pours pitch black with an extremely tin tan ring of head and virtually no lacing. Smells like chocolate milk with roasted malts. Taste lives up to the name as it is a chocolate bomb with both milk and dark chocolate present as well as a touch of bakers chocolate, molasses and roasted malts. Medium bodied, very lightly carbonated, smooth and creamy mouth feel with a slightly dry and bitter chocolate finish.

Pours black with a finger of khaki foam. Head retention is okay with okay lacing left behind. Aroma is lovely milk and dark chocolate swirled together. There is a dash of dry, baker's chocolate as well. Flavor profile is one smooth chocolate bar. Toasted and roasted malts up front with an emphasis on smooth, buttery toasted malts. There is a hint of milk chocolate at the start that swells and grows generating a chocolate milk like flavor profile at the finish. Splendid smoothness throughout. Mouth feel is medium in thickness, with a buttery smooth, and creamy texture. Overall, a well crafted dessert beer. Despite being made as a dessert, it is still smooth throughout the flavor profile, delivering tasty chocolate notes along the way.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.

Almost solid black, medium light carbonation. Nice creamy solid feel,great bidy. Aroma is bakers bitter chocolate, molasses,raisins, and a bread/yeast smell. Taste is identical, high abv is warming but it doesn't dominate the flavor. I really enjoyed it for what it was, a very good dessert beer

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a speiglau stout glass.

Look is a pitch black with a tan head.

Aroma is light malt, but not much chocolate.

Taste again is kinda subdued malt but no real malt or hops.
