look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Very dark black with a long lasting tan head that slowly settled to a thin cap. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Aroma is full of chocolate and dark malt aromas. Not terribly complex but cannot really get to indepth at the bar.

Impressive flavor for chocolate and malt flavors. A little roast and licorice. Notes of vanilla as well. Some alcohol is detected in the flavor. Excellent big stout flavors.

Big body and smoothly carbonated. Wonderful texture.

Sort of reminds me of Expedition Stout that is not nearly as hot. Town Hall should always have one of their wonderful RIS on-tap all the time. They do them very well.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A - Pours a black as night, minimal amount of frothy tan head with moderate lacing.

S- Huge chocolate aroma, dark roasted malt, & a bittersweet aroma.

T- True a chocolate delight, roasted malts, dark chocolate, rich vanilla flavor, & a slight coffee undertone.

M- Thick & meaty, well carbonated, really smooth and creamy, rich flavors flow across the palate, with an excellent finish.

O- Amazing beer, I really enjoyed this chocobomb. It was my first trip to Town Hall. Needless to say I'll be back plenty. I'll probably be back before then end of the week to catch another pour.

Wow haven't reviewed in a while but when MTH is this close..

A: black w/ think cream head that dissipates to just a fine film on the glass.
S: roasted malt, chocolate (more coco than milk)
T: chocolate in the front, vanilla, oak?, wait, no that's the malt character.
M: creamy, medium mouth, dry coco finish.
O: Freaking delicious. Big choco bomb up front but really is balanced over. Sweet but not cloying with a dryer finish that makes me want to keep taking more.

Imma finna polish off the rest of this keg tonight.

Poured into tulip.

A. Black. Half inch dark brown foam that fades fast. Pencil thin lacing remains down the glass.

S. Vanilla. Toasted malts. Cream. Chocolate.

T. Mimics smell at first. Like a vanilla milkshake. Followed by a hit of dark chocolate. Big blast of coffee in the end.

M Full. As mentioned, like a milkshake. Creamy. Thick as hell but really smooth.

O Awesome Imperial stout. Not boozy. Smooth, layered and complex, delicious. One of the best of the style I've ever had.
