Had this on-tap last night at the brewery. Extremely suprised to see it there since I've never had it before. I had two 10oz glasses of this glorious brew:

A - Light Khaki head that dissipates into thin ring around the edge. Murky bubbles in the center. Black as night.

S - Hersey and reese's peanut butter cups! Chocolate and vanilla. Roast and cream. Peanut butter. Awesome!

T - Incredible! It really tastes like a reese's cup! Loads of chocolate and candy sweetness. Truly an amazing flavor!

M - Creamy and smooth. Perfect carbonation. Light, not so thick, but this is not offensive.

D - Incredibly awesome! Liquid chocolate and peanut butter. 9.3% nothing. I could mix this with my cereal! Amazing stuff and I have to say it is my favorite stout to date. A must try brew.

On tap @ GTOM

Three times I went back for pours of this amazing, best in show, stout. Pours a lush black with a huge chocolate, foamy head.

Lots of chocolate, candy, toffee, molasses... sweet! The taste is just amazing and completely out of left field. This goes down in a flash. I wish I could pick out more of the individual notes and subtleties, but on a day in which I sampled a dozen stouts, this was by far the most memorable. Awesome stuff!

Had two goblets of this at Town Hall the other day.

1/2 finger of thick tan head. Very dark head. Fades to a thin layer but leaves some thick lace. Had head for the duration of the beer. Color is a motor oil black.

Aroma: A healthy dose of the Belgian Chocolate shines through. This beer is roasted with some dark fruit and licorice notes. A little vanilla here as well. A very big aroma from this one.

Taste: Well, I definitely like this more than Ol' Jack Frost. The Belgian chocolate adds a nice layer to this beer. Rich vanilla comes out here with some caramel. Then a does of molasses and licorice hit with some dark fruits. Lots of roasted malts in the finish with some coffee coming through. Very well deserving 5.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, rich, creamy, and above all, velvety. Full bodied with a perfect amount of carbonation. Ends rich and sweet with a nice amount of roasted malts.

Overall, this beer is amazing. I know it is just Ol' Jack Frost infused with Belgian Chocolate, but the chocolate really adds something magical to this beer. It really adds a nice layer of complexity to an already complex beer. Very drinkable. Had two goblets in the afternoon and one later in the evening.
