4.49/5  rDev +17.8%
look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Vigorous pour into Guinness pub glass, pitch black with pillowy and massive cream colored head that leaves insane lacing around glass.

S - Smells a little chemically, almost kind of artificial, some hints of caramel and coffee, not much chocolate.

T - Delicious chocolate up front, like an ovaltine maltiness and a dark chocolate candy bar. Not too sweet, and lots of organic chocolate flavor. Swishing it pulls out some cocoa sweetness, hints of caramel, toffee and a little nuttiness. Finish is dry and dark chocolate.

M - Chewy and sticky, like a good chocolate stout.

O - Up until buying this beer, I had never heard of this brewing company, but after this beer, I'll definitely be checking them out! One of the better chocolate stouts I've had, very tasty!

This beer is a deep, rich colored beer. It has a dark tan head that falls a little too quickly. The aroma is intensely chocolate and grain. Sweetness, cocoa, and a little yeast. It is good, but a little one dimensional. Full in body. The taste is mostly balanced, but leaned sweet. Some flat and woody-cardboard flavors, but not bad, just distracting. Some hop bitterness in the mid taste. Abrupt finish. Good, but not outstanding.

My beer guru brought this one over to share. Outstanding appearance and smell, really enjoyed sniffing this beer. Excellent taste, enjoyed it very much. A little thin for a stout but extremely tasty. Not extremely strong so no bonus points overall for ABV, not sure about the value because I did not buy it, if not over priced I would buy again.

Rated side by side with 3 other Penn brews. Pours black with a small khaki head. Aroma if rich cocoa powder and chocolate sauce, some earthy coffee to this, and definite sweet lactose notes. Flavor is light chocolate sauce, a tiny bit of earthy roast, and a nice sweet lactose touch. Medium bodied, smooth, with low plus carbonation. Hey, this is a pretty darn good sweet stout.

4.74/5  rDev +24.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Just about black with a dark brown head.

Smell: Absolutely delicious and sweet chocolate smell with hints of coffee.

Taste: Similar to the smell, sweet chocolate malts that turn into a nice bitter dark chocolate taste with hints of coffee on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, very sweet.

Overall: This will go down as one of my favorites. Nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. This would be AMAZING on nitro.

Serving type: on-tap
