Poured into a pint glass. Reviewed alongside Harpoon Chocolate Stout.
A: Dark brown/black with two-finger, tan, creamy head that lasted a while. Fantastic lacing.
S: Chocolate and subtle roasted malt. Some hops too.
T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Chocolate and very nice roasted flavor. Somewhat spicy hop flavor too.
M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Smooth and creamy.
O: Love how the hops complement the chocolatey goodness. Good lacing and mouthfeel too. I preferred this over the Harpoon.

First had: on tap at Rogue, Portland, OR
Poured a dark brown-black with a minimal tan head; no lacing to speak of. Milk chocolate in the aroma and a bit of roastiness. Taste of bakers' chocolate, sweet, but powdery, more subtle hints of coffee and nutshells, with a little bitterness in the finish to offset the sweetness. Mouthfeel was smooth, but a little light for the style, I thought. Still a nice drinker overall.

Appearance- Pours dark as cola syrup out of the bottle. Put right up to a halogen bulb its hue is impenetrable. If you dont watch what your doing you could end up with a 5 inch head.
Smell- The smell of this beer is probably its best attribute, caramel, cream and chocolate come across quick and smooth.
Taste- The taste is the same as the smell with this beer, except it comes through very quickly, as if a massively complex array of malty chocolate flavors are packed into a microsecond, after which those flavors quickly give way to a bitterness that remains.
Overall- This beer smells like... heaven... I mean the delicate balance of malt, sugar and creamy chocolate is incredible. However, the taste of the beer is comparatively average in my opinion. All that wonderful flavor is overwhelmed with a bit too much bite for my taste. The Hazelnut Brown Nectar is the exact opposite, not as rich or full of a smell, but a much smoother finish. Id recommend that over the chocolate stout any day.

This is my new favorite beer, period. I absolutely love everything about it, it is a perfect chocolate stout. I usually favor high IBU India Pale Ales, specifically double IPAs. This beer has single handedly broadened my horizons and become my new favorite. Om Kali Ma
