4.43/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into an oversized tulip. Nice and black with a tan head that fades quickly.

Lots of chocolate in the nose. Milk chocolate and bittersweet chocolate in equal parts, with some coffee as well. Smell is strong and very inviting.

No surprises on the palate. Plenty of chocolate. Sweet, milk chocolate initially with bitter chocolate and coffee following. Vanilla works it's way in nicely. Overall flavor is fairly bitter with just a little earthy hopiness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is smooth with just enough carbonation. Finish is surprisingly dry given the sweet flavor. This is an excellent chocolate stout, will be buying again.

A-Pours nearly black.

S-Dark chocolate and sweet vanilla. Impressive vanilla actually. Roast and java. Bitter cocoa powder.

T-Bitter and sweet chocolate. Makes me think of milk and dark chocolate. Vanilla bean. Vanilla a bit softer here. Medium coffee notes. Finishes sweetly roasty.

M-Medium bodied. Velvety feel. Softer bubbles.

O-I enjoyed this one a bunch and the sample has prompted me to grab a bottle in the near future.

Serving type: on-tap

4.36/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

11.5-ounce bottle poured into a stout glass.

Appearance: Pours a near-black with a short tan head. Lacing minimal.

Aroma: This beer has an attractive set of aromas with black coffee, dark fruit, cocoa, vanilla, coffee beans and dark chocolate all represented.

Taste: This is a tasty, complex beer - the taste is close to the nose, with roasty black coffee accented by cocoa and vanilla the dominant theme.

Mouthfeel: It's also not as thick and sludgy as I had guessed. It's very drinkable.

Overall: A beer to seek out. The complex flavor makes this a unique stout - it's full of flavor, and very distinct. A great beer to dip, savor, and enjoy.
