4.13/5 rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Deep, dark brown approaches black. Head lingers for several minutes and lacing is heavy.
Smell: Heavy on roasted malts and dark chocolate.
Taste: Chocolately in a noticeable, yet subtle way. Some sips taste like a shot of chocolate milk was put in this beer, others taste like premium dark chocolate was ground into a powder and dissolved in the beer. Despite these fine flavors, this is still a full-bodied stout, first and foremost; a stout's stout, as it were.
Mouthfeel: Very thick and creamy with moderate carbonation. There is a bitter aftertaste from the dark chocolate and roasted malts that lingers, but this is expected.
Drinkability: I finished my pint surprisingly quickly for a beer with so much flavor and body. Very drinkable for such a heavy stout.
Serving type: on-tap
