Poured a dark black, very dark indeed. Subtle mocha colored head which left traces on the glass. Smelled of cocoa, coffee, and smoke. Taste was not dominated by chocolate at all, which was a relief. Nice balance of malts, with the cocoa becoming noticeable after swallowing. I've had chocolate stouts before and was disappointed. Not with this. One of the best of its kind out there.

Poured into a standard pint glass. This beer is a beautiful rich dark chocolate black color. A dark tan creamy head sits on top and takes a long while to dissipate to a thinner film. Thick sheets of sticky lacing. The beer smells of rich bitter chocolate and roasted malts. The taste is exceptional, with dark bitter chocolate being dominant. Roasted malts abound. The mouthfeel is awesome, because it's thick enough, unlike some stouts that can be watery. Overall, this is pretty much what I'll compare all other chocolate stouts to. It's not cloyingly sweet or watery like all of the others I've had. It's delicious and very drinkable.
