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

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!

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

A: Jet black. Midnight in a glass, chocolatey creamy brown head.

S: Smells like chocolate and alcohol, two of my favorite things.

T: Incredibly rich, almost too much chocolate, but if that's not what you're looking for why the hell did you buy a beer called "chocolate meltdown"? This is to beer like port is to wine, rich and robust, something you sip on with desert. Served a thick slice of peanut-butter fudge; orgasm in the mouth.

M: Almost syrup it has such a strong mouth feel, not much carbonation, or if it was i wasn't paying enough attention.

O: This beer has its own character and shouldn't be held to the standards of others

Serving type: on-tap
