Aroma Is Dark Chocolate, coffee. Dark black color. Smallish tan head. Taste us bitter chocolate and coffee plus a touch of black cherry. Fudge, Toast. A touch flat.
Pretty tasty beer, but a little too sweet, and not enough body for a stout.

Dark black color and carmel head. Not too thick in terms of mouthfeel. Probably too much chocolate with this one. Almost a bitter taste to it with the amount of chocolate.

Pours dark with a tan head. Smells of dark chocolate and chocolate syrup. Tastes very chocolatey and almost sweet like chocolate syrup. I found this was an excellent pairing with chocolate covered pretzels. It felt a bit thin and watery. Overall not bad, very chocolatey and not bitter or too sweet.

Very chocolatey but drinkable. Almost like a Bailey's Irish Creme. Although this couldn't be a daily beer because of the abundance of flavor it is a wonderful brew.
