A-Pours nearly perfect black. Light barely penetrates the beer's furthest edges. Dark khaki head is minimal in stature but adds and extra piece of attraction to the overall look.

S-Smells like liquified milk chocolate. Behind the chocolate fondue aroma is light roast. They really nailed the chocolate here. So pure and intense.

T-Literally tastes like a Hershey bar melted to pure liquid. In the liquid chocolate seems to be a quick but generous pour of coffee. The taste is pretty awesome. It is one-sided but it is supposed to be. Really cool

M-Full feel with mellow carbonation. Feel and flavor match well and complement one another.

O/D-This is a chocolate explosion in a glass. I truly enjoyed this brew. I liked it a lot more that Southern Tier's Choklat. I found this one to be more of a pure chocolate flavor. Really nice but one glass is enough because it is very rich.

Been on a chocolate binge lately, this is delicious but I've come to the conclusion that I'll just stick to chocolate milk.

Beautiful darkest brown, big creamy chocolate head, lace, really good looking beer. Smells, what else, milk chocolate. Nice mix of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, roasted malts, even some hops leading to a nice bittersweet finish. Nice and creamy on the palate, at the end of a (too) long day, I would have preferred 16 oz serving though. I had a growler of their double chocolate once which was probably my favorite chocolate beer to date.

A: Dark with a slight brown hue, rich. excellent lacing, excellent head

S: Smells faintly of dark chocolate and all spice.

T: When I think chocolate stout, this is what I want. An great balance between dark chocolate and malty beer flavors. It has a little coffee and almost a little burnt sugar taste too it, but not enough to throw off the chocolate/stout combo -instead it adds a bit of depth. Perfection

Mouthfeel: Extremely smooth, rich, excellent

Overall: For it's style I can't think of any way this beer could be better so full marks. While not exactly inexpensive at $6.50 for 650ml it is worth every penny. If you love darker beers and/or chocolate you will love this beer. If you want a hoppy beer, look elsewhere -that isn't what this style or stouts in general are about. I'm going to have to add this to my list of favorite beers without a doubt.

Favorite beers (for comparison, after all taste preferences are subjective): Elysian's Daedalus Irish Stout, Rogue's Hazelnut Brown Nectar, Allagash's White Ale, New Belgium's 1554, Full Sail's Wassail, etc. Beer styles I don't like: IPAs (with few exceptions)
