4.45/5 rDev +7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 22 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: Very dark and black with a slight hint of brown at the bottom. Big rich tan head that has good retention and lacing.
Smell: Big aroma of sweet dark chocolate with some coffee and roasted malts. Also getting a hint of vanilla and dark fruit. Mostly chocolate.
Taste: A sweet burst of dark chocolate and a little milk chocolate followed by roasted malts and a light fruity character. There is a light earthy hop bitterness throughout that helps balance the sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Medium to high body with a light to medium carbonation. Very creamy and goes down easy.
Overall: This is a very good chocolate stout that is something you can have when you want a strong chocolate flavor without the heavy body of an imperial stout. This is a lighter stout but it is tasty and balanced.
Serving type: bottle
