220z. bomber into goblet.
It is an opaque, dark black with hints of deep red, almost purple throughout. The head is a thick, foamy, dark toffee with nice retention and beautiful lacing.
The aroma is of rich chocolatey malts with some light roasted coffee notes.
The flavor is more very chocolatey malts, with some light roasted malt flavors, with an almost astringent bitterness.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a good bit of carbonation. And while I feel that it is a fine mouthfeel it did not quite fit what I would expect for a chocolate stout, which would have been a bit heavier, creamier bodied with less carb.
Overall, while I was very impressed with this beer as a whole, I would definitely like to try this again and see if I can pick up more aspects of the flavor.
