From a bomber into a pint.

A: Pours black, with a creamy tan head. Very nice head retention. Decent lacing. No visible activity.
S: Chocolate and roasty malt. Quite sweet (chocolate) in the nose, some oats and vanilla.
T: Roasty, and very chocolatey. Enough bitterness to finish and balance out the sweetness, but definitely not overpowering.
M: Medium bodied. Drinks smooth. Coats the mouth very nicely. A moderately dry finish. Expected it to be fuller bodied. Carbonation is also a little more present as an after taste tingle as opposed to the initial.

Overall: Very nice, but not necessarily what i expected. The chocolate aspect i thought was phenomenal, but lighter bodied and too one sided for my liking. Very good though.

Pours pitch black, no light getting through whatsoever . BIG chocolate and roasted smell. Taste is drier than the smell led me to believe, but that is nice since this is so rich. Mouthfeel is heavy as $^!@, super thick like a shake. Thick, dense, creaming head that sticks around forever and coats the entire glass as you drink. This is a great chocolate stout, around the same enjoyment as Samuel Smith's for me.

Very solid chocolate stout. Not too sweet from the cocoa, not too bitter like some stouts. Middle of the road alcohol content makes this a very easy to enjoy beer. Thumbs up to this one for sure.
