Served on tap at Kclinger's Publik House

Appearance - Dark as night. Black with caramel-like head on top. Head didn't stay along for the ride, but initially this was a total prom queen of a stout.

Smell - Yum. Nutty, chocolaty with some coffee notes and roasted hints. This made my stomach growl. Very nice arome to this one.

Taste - Wow. Very nice. The cocolate is the front-runner here with the roasted and coffee flavors coming in a quick second and nuts pulled in with the bronze. A very nice array and balance of differing flavors.

Mouthfeel - Silky smooth and as comfy as an old recliner. This beer just "fits" on the palate. A welcome guest.

Drinkability - If I wasn't trying to accumulate passport stamps, I would have camped out on this one all night. Very drinkable.

Overall - This one is a truly remarkable brew. If you do see this one, pick it up and enjoy it. It is worth it.

Poured an attractive black color with brown head that lingered. Aroma is chocolate, but also of Cascade hops. Flavor is very chocolatey, but the sweetness is balanced well by by the hops. This was very tasty. Nice lacing on glass. If you like chocolate, do yourself a favor and try this. If you dont like chocolate this might convert you.

Going to try this one again, and again, but for now...

App - Good, dark, brown head...resembles a heavy stout..

Smell - heavy on sweetness and chocolate, roasty/nutty malts to assist

T/MF - Heavy, slick, perfectly carbonated, chocolate tasting with maltiness and notes of nuttiness coming through the palate. This is very well-balanced.

Overall - all good, solid offering, wanna try a stout, grab one of these..

A: Pours a deep, dark brown with leathery edges. A large cocoa colored head settles slowly and chaotically to a nice creamy cap, leaving some initial rings and sheets of lace.

S: Woah, strong bittersweet chocolate with a faint toasted malt aroma and some citrus hops. Absolutely fantastic aroma.

T&M: Sweet chocolate, citrus hops, and toasted black malt all make their appearance. Finish is long and lingering with all three primary flavor components, though a bit stronger on the roasted malt and chocolate. A medium/full body with slight amount of carbonation--helps those chocolate flavors stay smooth.

D: With so much flavor, it has to be drinkable. A smooth, creamy feel also adds enjoyability to the experience. Chocolate stout is one of the most unique beers I've ever drank, and would strongly recommend it to anyone interested in beer.
