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

3.98/5 rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Glass Used: Tumbler pint
Appearance: Deep brown, almost opaque. Only a shimmer of light is seen when held to a light source. Thick tan foamy head with good lacing.
Smell: Creamy sweet milk chocolate and lots of it. Hints of caramel.
Taste:Full on chocolate with some malt in there. Finished with a bit of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: With the smell and taste, I thought it was going to have a sticky feel to it but it didn't. Light body and carbonation.
Overall: If you want a chocolate stout, this should be on your list. An excellent chocolate offering with minimal secondary flavors that could take away from what this is. A very well done chocolate stout. I would definitely buy this one again and again.
