Tasted at the Tempe Great Arizona Beer Festival

I had previously stayed away from chocolate stouts. Not sure why. The color was very dark black with a nice thick head. Smell is chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Taste is creamy chocolate with just a hint of bitterness and alcohol. Mouthfeeel was almost slightly grainy. This might have been a function of the tasting environment. I can't wait to try this with a nice slice of plain cheesecake. Will pick up a bottle to have the next time cheesecake is on the menu.

Very dark brown with a deep beige head (light brown?). Three-finger head from the pour, excellent ring lace on the glass side with each sip.

Strong cocoa aromas, almost like hot chocolate mix. Some sweetness to the smell. Some dark malts come through; no discernible hop.

Very chocolatey taste with very little sweetness. I like how the beer transitions to a subtle hop flavor. Perhaps the only flaw is that aftertaste is so brief. Thick body, similar to hot chocolate. Appropriate carbonation. Nice complexity with lots of differing tastes coming through at different points of the taste. The balance at the swallow is something special.

Do you like chocolate? If so, this is a great beer. It does not have the usual overdone flavors, just a wonderfully balanced brew. If you're expecting a dry stout, this will be quite distracting. Go with cocoa flow and enjoy.
