22 oz. bomber poured into brandy snifter.
Pours a dark brown / black color with thick brown head.
The nose is chocolate chocolate and more chocolate! Also a bit of coffee and smokiness, but mostly all chocolate. The taste is not as sweet as it smells, but definitely a lot of chocolate - backed by a bit of roasted coffee and an almost a citrusy floral hop finish. The mouthfeel is a lot thinner than it looks/smells. I expected this to be much thicker consistency with a lot less carbonation. This is where this beer falls off for my tastes. I would have loved this stout to be a little bit sweeter and more body to it. Although it wasn't as heavy as I would have liked it, it proves to be a much more drinkable stout than one would expect. Overall it's a pretty delicious stout oozing with chocolate flavors, who wouldn't like that?
