Had this at Alto Cinco in Syracuse, NY in 2007, but took notes. It was a decent looking RIS, pitch black with brown head, and the aromas of chocolate and coffee were a bit enticing. However, the taste and smell suffered a lot, it was WAAAYYY too rich and tasted like a chocolate cake that fell short, mouthfeel is just way too heavy and this beer is unthinkable and undrinkable.

Very bitter taste like a strong acid taste.

I wanted to rate this lower, but just couldn't bring myself to do it. Not at all the beer I remember from years past and certainly not a Black Chocolate Stout. Pours pitch black with a brownish rim and absolutely no head. Had to really concentrate to get any aroma at all, and I still can't place what it is. Finally, this beer has a metallic taste; like I was drinking nickels or something. I'm curious to try it again, because this is a beer I used to like, say four-to-five years ago; but I was completely unimpressed this time.
