Was a little hesitant about this one as it is the first chocolate stout I have tried.

Keen on trying a few more now!

This is a great beer.

Pours very dark with a tan head that dissipates

Smells something like ovaltine.. nice and sweet

Tastes hoppy at first with a lingering dark chocolate flavour

Excellent beer .. going to have to have a go at brewing a chocolate stout now

I have seen this beer in the fridge at work for months though never tried it. I decided to give her a go and purchased a 22oz bottle with my food. I poured the beer and it looked fantastic. I am a fan of stouts so I had high hopes. I took a whiff and the beer impressed me once again. It was only when I proceeded to take a taste that I realized that this was not my brew. The initial taste was delightful but then easily overpowered by strong hints of cocoa powder. I read the bottle and they hit the nail on the head by describing it as "chocolate truffle." Too choco for me. I would recommend to a friend. Merely for kicks- as a novelty beer.

Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Samuel Adams English nonick.

a: Opaque black. A two inch tall tan head receded fairly quickly to even surface foam and patchy lacing.

s: Dark chocolate!

t: Same as the nose. Thge sweetness is balanced by some bitterness but not as much as noted in their Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout which I had recently.

m: Light to moderate. Occasional hints of wateriness.

o: A good chocolate stout, easy drinking and tasty.
