Jet black colour with a thick bubbly light brown two fingered head, sticks sporadically down the glass. Chocolaty aroma, reminiscent of powdered hot coco … it even goes further with hints of carob with a soft powdery sweetness. Roasted malts are there but restrained in the aroma. Big viscous crispness within the full body and medium carbonation. Big dark chocolate flavours with a dark fruitiness in the middle similar to black berries, maltiness is big but the roasted flavours are humble yet generous with a mild bitterness from the bite. The blend of roasted malts and chocolate flavour make for a bitter sweet flavour likened to baker chocolate. Hops are held to a minimum though are certainly present with earthy undertones that complement the roasted flavours.

As far as flavoured stouts go this is one of the best, very well balanced and quite drinkable for a brew with such a big body.

Serving type: bottle

4.58/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: On tap @ Bukowski's in Boston.

Appearance: Pitch black with a milky coffee head -- thick, creamy and invincible!

Smell: Major chocolate aromas. Soft. Milky.

Taste: Creamy, smooth, full-bodied, but not overly rich. Burnt around the edges of the palate. Touch of bitterness that blends with some smoke characters. Loads of real chocolate flavour, which dominates the entire tasting. Dry. Very little sweetness, but what is there is date-like with hints of black-strap molasses. Surprisingly light going down, given its rich name and appearance.

Notes: Chocolate!! The only thing you can think of is ... chocolate. And, you should as unlike other "chocolate" labeled beers that use chocolate malts to achieve the flavour, this beer is brewed with natural chocolate flavour, and chocolate malts.

Truly an exceptional beer, and it makes for a perfect dessert on its own, or pair it with one.

Serving type: on-tap
