Poured out of a bottle.
Pours almost black with a brown head that didn't stick around for long.
Smells a little like chocolate but also some malt/coffee aromas too. Not a really big smell.
Taste has strong hints of chocolate but not nearly the chocolate blast of the Rogue Double Chocolate Stout. More bitter at the finish then I expected, given the start.
Mouthfeel is really not very thick for a stout, but maybe I should have expected as much given 6% ABV.
Overall a pleasant chocolate stout. If you really want a thicker, chewier chocolate blast, the Rogue Double Chocolate Stout is better, but this is more balanced. It was better overall then the sum of its parts.
And one food pairing suggestion: raw chocolate chip cookie dough with this beer is a revelation.
