This one is a chocolate stout in the true and literal sense of the word!!
On first pour it is truly and deeply dark black - with a head that is deep, creamy tan foam. Aroma is overwhelmingly chocolate malt with some light coffee touchs.
Initial taste is strong dark chocolate with very little milk flavours, very smooth and creamy while still a little dry. The chocolate flavours dominate and, in fact, are nearly overwhelming (the one real weakness of the beer). Mouthfeel is less creamy than most chocolate stouts. It goes down smoothly, leaving little in the way of aftertaste.
I like the beer - but I don't know if I could recommend it given that it's the kind of beer some might really dislike. The chocolate flavours are SO strong that it's almost not even a beer but rather some sort of chocolate desert malt beverage.
