Poured in a clear glass goblet, very dark and the stout developed a half in head, very good lacing all around the glass; sniffed and got a strong scent of chocolate milk and roasted coffee beans and alcohol, this is a very inviting brew. Sipped a small amount and swirled around my mouth, I got a full range of complex flavors; bitter but very drinkable, a bitter taste remains in back of my mouth. I drank the first half glass and paired with a mild cheese. Delicious! HOG

Pours black with some brown chocolate/coffee highlights, with a caramel colored head.

Big chocolate smell backed by roasted malt and bitter coffee.

Taste is bitter chocolate up front reminiscent of cocoa powder, followed by roasted malt with some sweet caramel notes. Bitter coffee is subtle and there is some bitter herb flavor from the hops. Finishes dry and crisp. An excellent beer, it has big chocolate flavor without being sickly sweet. Very nice.

Poured into a standard pint...

A: Dark black in color, produces a creamy two finger light brown head. Leaves patchy lacing and retains very well.

S: Milk chocoalte, roasty malts, slightest coffee smell but predominantly sugary chocoalte. Smell is more pronounced as the beer warms.

T: Bittersweet bakers chocolate, roasted malts, hop bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Extremly smooth and creamy.
.
O: Wonderful tasting beer. Drinks more like a desert. A bit filling but very, very tasty. Definitely reccommended if you like your stouts
