A: THIS is what a stout should look like. Deep, deep, brown. Pours like motor oil that is way overdue for a change. Light brown head with heavy lacing. Dense. Don't even bother holding it up to a light.
S: Pretty good but lighter than expected. Milk chocolate, caramel and malt. Was expecting roasty/nutty but didn't get much, maybe some light almonds.
T: Chocolate all the way through. Some tangy zest right after the beginning, bitter cocoa, and a little bit of hop bitterness at the finish. Straightforward and no nonsense, even though it does have chocolate in it. Makes up for its lack of complexity with balanced chocolate and malt flavor. Some nuttiness in there.
M: Just like a good stout should be. Creamy, almost milky. A decent amount of carbonation that doesn't quite make it through because of the rich body, but it's perfectly "there."
O: This isn't just a novelty beer like I assumed at first, but it's really good and solid. Although chocolate and stout isn't the most creative combination in the world, it is definitely done well in this one.
