4.18/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a 14 ounce snifter

Appearance - pitch black with a 2 finger tan head. no lacing on glass, head retention is quite lasting.

Aroma - dark chocolate and roasted malts. A sweeter milk chocolate does somewhat cut through on the nose with hints of vanilla making its mark.

Taste - I am more impressed with the aroma on this one. A bittersweet chocolate taste comes through with a semi lingering roasty finish. You do get some hints of vanilla in the middle of the tongue, but the aroma does come off a little sweeter. Not too overpowering of a roasted note to this one, and the bitterness in the finish is balanced enough with the malts that it does not plague the tongue with an overly bitter flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation on this one. Not silky smooth by any means, but with a medium body and a semi creaminess to it, its not bad. Wish it were a little lighter on the carbonation and had a little bit more of a heavier/creamier mouthfeel.

Overall - Not bad. This is rated higher than southern tiers "choklat", but overall, i think choklat does a better job of nailing what i would want out of a chocolate beer. This is definitely better than a lot of stouts advertised as chocolate stouts, and for the price, its pretty damn solid. I do love the vanilla flavor that compliments the chocolate and the lack of overly bitter malts to give it that easy drinking feel. All in all, I would say this is definitely one to take a stab at.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is rich chocolate, a little coffee, and roasted malt.
The taste is nice and chocolaty with some mild coffee bitterness in the background to balance it out.
The texture is crisp with some smoothness on the side and moderate carbonation.
Quite enjoyable.
