4.08/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

550ml bottle poured into tulip 13/12/13

A almost black with a deep cola edge, three fingers of mocha foam slowly falls to a thick film leaving continuous unorganized lace to the bottom of the glass, no complaints here

S massive Hershey chocolate syrup, coco powder, faint vanilla, chocolate milk, and more chocolate syrup, one dimensional but it works

T some nutty notes, a little prune and chocolate covered cherry, faint cold coffee, chocolate syrup still owns this one and even though there's more going on in the mouth I preferred the nose

M not as full as the color would imply, creams up nicely from the bubbles, lots of chocolate lingering

O it is what it claims that's for sure, this is a must for chocolate lovers and my bottles already gone at this point so that says something

I'll stop short of saying its complex but the intensity's there and for a 5% stout I could drink a few without getting board

Live review. Poured from the 550 mL bottle that my brother in law Bruce bought at Save On Tobacco & Beverage in Mentor, Ohio about a month ago. He then gave it to me after a party that he hosted. Thanks Bruce! Price tag on the bottle cap announces "3.99." Stamp on neck of bottle indicates "SI27M1" although I do not observe a "best by" date anywhere on the bottle.

A Great medium brown two inch head over a ver dark body that glows a deep mahogany in front of direct light. Nice look. 4.0

S Gentle stout with nice milk chocolate sweetness. I don't know about anyone else, but this is the best "chocolate stout" smell that I have encountered. 4.5

T Great smell carries right over into the taste. Dark roast malt is classically prepared (I would not expect anything else from Samuel Smith/Tadcaster) and the chocolate is the perfect companion that it was meant to be in all of the chocolate stouts that I have had before this one. THIS is how it is supposed to be done. Bravo! 5.0

M Smooth as silk feel that slips over my tongue and down my throat with ease. That was not always experienced with other chocolate stouts. There is a slight "heat" of alcohol on the back of my tongue and a hint of bitterness but the chocolately smoothness wins over. 4.5

D/O Drinkability is incredibly good. Overall this is a world class Chocolate Stout. In keeping with my traditions, I have not read any other review. It will interest me to see what the BA community thinks. 4.5

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz into a nonic pint. It has a great appearance almost black with low transparency and a 3/4 inch off white head. It has a delightful milk chocolate/dark chocolate nose. It has a nice creamy chocolate taste. It has a creamy mouth feel with a wet finish. Overall a very enjoyable chocolate stout.
