Picked this up recently because it's on the top 100 U.S. beer list here and it just *sounded* good from reading the bottle and the ingredients that went into this. Sure enough, this beer lived up to the hype and just may be the best one I've had in quite a long time. Winter has been hellish here in the northeast this year but thankfully, this made one of the cold nights much easier to get through!

Sure enough, this pours like a liquid dark chocolate bar and the frothiness is like a nice milkshake on top to boot. The lacing is moderate and the aroma is just like the taste - smooth, fairly strong, with some hops and a soft, rich dark chocolate back to it. No espresso, bitter chocolate, or alkali to be found here. The best way of describing this is taking a Ghirardelli bar and just having some west coast hoppy fun with it. This is very well balanced and not strong enough in the taste or alcohol department; in other words, I could have easily enjoyed this whole bottle even though I split it with a friend that night.

It seems like a lot of the top Stouts on here are involved in an "Arms race" of sorts as they attempt to be more strong and extreme. This is on the other end of the shock scale. Nothing complex about this but one look at the list of what went into this on the side of the bottle and you'll know that this is well crafted as any bomber on your local retailer's shelf. For any beer or chocolate aficionado, this is certainly not to be missed!
