Black dark rich looking pour with foamy tan head that didn't linger long. Moderate lacing. Strong chocolate and roasty malts on the nose and the mouth follows with vanilla, caramel and a sweet taste, a true dessert beer. Very easy to drink this smooth full bodied beer!

Well, they weren't kidding when they called this a dessert beer. Those with sensitive palates, particularly to a sugary sweetness (or chocolate), might strongly object to this one, but it's tasty enough as long as you know what you're in for. But please bear in mind, for the love of God, this beer *is* dessert, not something which should accompany it. Don't go on a suicide mission.

Poured into a snifter from a 12oz bottle.
L. Dark opaque coffee, half finger brown head disappearing fairly quickly.
S. Defenitly not strong, cocoa, hints of caramel, vanilla, malt
T. Slightly bitter chocolate, hints of barley, caramel, smoky. Very fullfilling
F. Creamy, soft on the pallet, light on carbonation.
O. Great dessert beer, definitely enjoy this breweries blackwater series.

Looks magnificent, brown foamy head with a rich black body. Smell: the smoothest molasses, roasted overtones.
Taste. Sublime, i like mine on the cold side a tad but that caramel drizzle really starts to blend into the malty, licorice, creating a chocolate medley.

Incredibly enjoyable. Bought for my girl but I couldn't resist

A - Dark brown, almost opaque pour. Less than a finger of head that stuck around.
S - Lots of roasted chocolate of course, mild roasted malt and coffee.
T - Muted sweetness with chocolate and roasted barley/malt up front. It's all very smooth and the alcohol is very well incorporated.
M - Full bodied, with a good amount of bitterness, low amount of carbonation.
O - This is another valiant attempt at a chocolate beer. The Blackwater Series is pretty solid, but the Chokolat 'angle' is just a selling point. It's a good stout overall and I'll drink it again, but not worth seeking out.
