Poured on draft, the Chocolate Stout is a deep, dark reddish black, with a thick, 2 finger, creamy, medium-dark tan head. Sadly, the head didn't stick around to long and only left slight lace. Very nice, rich but not oily, especially with that head.
The aroma, yummm, thats great! All chocolate, sweet, but like coco, not sugar.
The taste follows suit, it is fantastic, very chocolaty, some oats and a bit of cola. You can really taste the difference between stouts with chocolate malt and ones like this that also use the real thing, very nice. There's also a fairly assertive hop presence, particularly on the finish, which is probably the main differentiator between this and Young's Double Chocolate, which is similarly fantastic real chocolate goodness.
The mouthfeel is fantastic, super creamy, but supple and light, almost like a nitro, but with more carbonation.
Whoa, this is super drinkable. I could have these all night!
