Purchased from Frugal MacDougal, Nashville, TN.

I reviewed this once before on-tap, from memory, upon first trying it. This is a second review, taken with much more beer knowledge and with peace and quiet at home with a bottle. My opinion has changed slightly, and I taste things now that I didn't taste before, but largely I think I'm about even with myself.

A: Dark body, thick foamy tan head. Head seems to float on top of the beer like a chocolate malted, and leaves significant lacing on the glass.

S: Strong on hop presence, with dry roasty malt underneath, and an enveloping layer of chocolate. (This is the largest difference between my two reviews -- on-tap all I got on the nose was, "smells like the best mocha latte you've ever had", but experience has given me greater olfactory tools.)

T: Strong hop presence in flavor, nice velvety bittersweet cholcate afterwards. Lightly bitter and slightly astringent aftertaste.

M: Thick mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, about right for a stout.

D: Could down several of these -- a bomber goes down smooth.

Overall, I love this beer and buy it every chance I get. Is it better on-tap or from the bottle? Hmm, gonna need some more experimentation to find out.
