Poured from a bomber into a Westbrook tulip.

A: Pitch black, motor oil-esque pour with fantastic 2 finger dark khaki colored head. Head dropped from 2 fingers to 1 after a few minutes but stuck around pretty well after that. Beautiful lacing.

S: A lot of chocolate and coffee on the nose. Maybe a little of booze? Smells about like you would expect.

T: Espresso, bitter dark chocolate, maybe a little molasses? There is the bitterness you would expect from a RIS, but it's not overdone. This is a plus in my book. It's still a sipper, but it doesn't feel work to put it down.

M: Full bodied, medium carbonation. Some creaminess and moderately dry finish.

O: One of the more drinkable RIS's I've had. I'm glad the chocolate wasn't overdone, but I wish there was just a little bit more in the flavor. It's a very good RIS in my mind, but would have been a little better with a little more chocolate given the name of the beer. Maybe it's not the best RIS ever, but it's still a very good beer in my mind and worth a try if you run across one.

Had on tap.

Appearance is ptich black with a fairly thick dark brown head.

Tons of dark chocolate and dark roasted coffee on the aroma. Some notes of burnt caramel and toffee as well.

More roast on the flavor along with espresso and dark chocolate. Some hints of dark fruit although this is buried pretty deep below the chocolate, coffee, and caramel. A lot of sweetness with this beer with a pretty heavy body. Definitely a sipper.

Overall, this is a good beer but I am not blown away by it. I really enjoy the chocolate and coffee flavors but it is just a little on the heavy side.

January 2012 release. Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Half Acre snifter.

A- pours black with a 2 finger dark mocha head. Leaves thick trails and walls of lacing.

S- big chocolate, dark fruits, some roast and coffee.

T- bitter roast, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and some semi sweet molasses.

M- full body and medium carbonation. Thick with some creaminess and slightly dry finish.

O- good RIS, better than I expected actually even with the high rating. Has some sweetness and lots of chocolate, roast, and dark fruits.

I was fortunate to find this beer at a local shop. It was however rather expensive, but due to the scarcity of this one I figured I would bite the bullet and shell out the cash. I chilled it to around 45 degrees and then pried off the cap. I poured it into a Imperial pint glass and let it breath for 10 minutes or so before I tasted. The glass was held up to a light and no transparency. It was very dark nearly obsidian in color. It smelled really nice and rich lots of chocolate, molasses and some coffee but not too much. I do not care for coffee stouts but since this one was more of a chocolate stout I figured I would give it a try. The first taste had a strong molasses taste not too cloying but more molasses than chocolate or coffee to me. As it warmed slightly the chocolate and coffee came in as well as the licorice. However, it still had an overpowering molasses taste. Which for the price and hype of this beer was its downfall. I would have expected more of a cocoa backbone. In regard to mouthfeel it was slightly watery but nothing that was overtly. I felt it was pretty well balanced from a texture point of view. Nevertheless, I would not give this beer as high of remarks as others in its category. Also, for the price it is overrated. As most stouts in this category I imagine this one could be aged. I just wonder if it would improve with age?

3.55/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Dark brown with light brown accents. Barely any foam or signs of carbonation.

S - Lots of roasted and smoked malt with dark chocolate and burnt caramel / molasses

T - Dark chocolate up front with lots of smoked oak in it. More dark chocolate comes next with slight black licorice. The smoke slightly overpowers everything else. Finish is slight espresso and oak.

M - The body is a bit thin with light carbonation. More watery than creamy. Roasted espresso with a slight bitterness in the finish

O - This is a better than average stout but it's not amazing. It's too watery for my taste and I found the smokiness to be slightly overpowering
