A: Dark brownish black, decent-sized tan head, very little lacing left behind.

S: Just lots of rich, sweet chocolate here.

T/M: Sweet chocolatey goodness up front, balanced out by some bitterness from the hops. Very little follow-through, though, and the mouthfeel is surprisingly thin and watery.

O: A decent, tasty, rather mild chocolate stout. Pretty good stuff, but could be lots better with some more body.

22oz bottle poured into Rogue goblet.

A - Dark black brown with a small creamy tan head.

S - Sweet cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, chocolate cake. Very inviting.

T - A mix of dark chocolate and bitter coffee present throughout. Mild sweetness up front with a decent amount of bitterness towards the finish. Finishes with rich chocolate, earthy malt, and espresso flavors.

M - Insanely smooth with a nice creamy consistency. Medium-heavy body with low carbonation.

O - A delicious stout. I was pleased to find a good amount of bittering hops, which accented the sweet chocolate flavors quite well. I also had this on tap which was just as good, if not better than the bottle.

A - 4.0 - Totally opaque black. Decent tan head. Lots of lacing.

S - 4.5 - Straight up delicious. Creamy milk chocolate and maybe some kind of really sweet cookie-ish malt, with a tiny hint of something stiffer behind it.

T - 4.5 - More of that stiffer stuff from the aroma and in greater quantity. Not quite coffee but something approaching that. The barest rumor of fruit something. The immediate afterswallow is dark chocolate. After that comes a momentary wisp of mild char bitterness that's gone quickly. I'm surprised this is 69 IBU. After that are nice warm booze fumes wafting up from down low for a while. Longer term aftertaste is faint char bitterness and sweeter chocolate.

M - 4.0 - Feels initially weighty and silky as you pull it in yet gives way to lightness and a bit of carbonation tingle. Just a suggestion of astringency longer term, which is perfect.

O - 4.5 - I thought I was in for a sweet treat that would be more chocolaty than beery, a novelty, but this was distinctive, mature, and therefore memorable. Really well done. Two thumbs well up. Will definitely drink again.

Pours pitch black with a large tan head and decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate, roast and cappucino. Taste is all about dark chocolate, bitter coffee and some sweet creaminess similar to a milk stout. Mouthfeel is full and drinkability is very good.
