A - Good head, moderate carbonation, and terrific lacing. This is a pretty stout.
S - Chocolate and malt.
T - This beer is aptly named "chocolate stout" for its intense chocolate flavor. The chocolate quite obviously contains a high percentage of pure cacao (bakers chocolate) giving the beer a bitter taste. In some ways, this stout is reminiscent of a more bitter Young's Double Chocolate Stout and a much less sweet version of Mackeson Triple XXX Stout. All in all, it is rather one-dimensional, but it is all it claims to be; which earns extra points in my book.
M - Dry, clean, and light.
D - This stout would definitely take serious points here if and only if Rouge came down on the price quite a bit. This beer is just *way* too expensive at $6 per pint.
I may complain about the price, but this beer is world class.
