Pitch black pour with a creamy two finger beige head with good retention and great lacing. The nose is huge and really lives up to the name. Tons of cocoa and dark chocolate along with hints of milk chocolate, oats, and vanilla. The taste follows suit with the chocolate again dominating, but with a distinct bitterness. Hints of cocoa, caramel, leather, vanilla, oats, and roasty coffee. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy with medium carbonation and a dry, bittersweet finish. Overall, this surprised me as I was expecting a sweet and syrupy artificial mess, but instead got a much more natural tasting chocolate stout.

A pretty dark stout color with a strong mocha colored head. The lace thin but very strong and stained the glass big time as I drank the brew down. Very nice to look at. Nose was (guess) chocolate, candied sugar, caramel nougat, and a little rum-like ester. All were appetizing to smell, but none were presented or combined in an impressive way. Taste was (guess) chocolate and candied sugar. Had a dry hoppy finish but of the bitter sort you'd find in good chocolate. Even better was its almost fruity espresso flavors in the middle of its flavor profile. The mouthfeel was thin with a fizz that came from the head and hops. A very straightforward beer but by no means boring and one of the better stouts out of the six famous and beeradvocate highly-ranked ones I've had recently. Simple and simply edible, this is a tasty stout I am welcome to return to. With a way too easy mouthfeel, and skilled brewing, its a beer version of milk chocolate.

Very dark brown, opaque. At the very edge of the glass a slight brown/ruby color can be seen. Soft, creamy looking head that dissipates nearly entirely, but clings to the edge of the glass. Left little to no lacing on my glass.
Thick, and heavy with the smell of chocolate. Not a coco smell, but the smell of chocolate syrup. No hop aroma at all.
Light, roasted barley with a slight crispness. Flavor is clean and free of esters. The chocolate flavor is not as overwhelming as the aroma would suggest. Carbonation is on the smoother side, pleasant, and not too abrasive. Has a smooth, creamy finish, and the roasted chocolaty flavors finish well with a pleasant slightly bitter aftertaste. Could have slightly more body in the flavor and mouthfeel, and perhaps just a hint of acidity or sourness to balance the bittersweet chocolate flavor.
Overall Style 4.375/5

Pours a dark black, with a 1 finger tan head that leaves lacing. Not overcarbonated looking like some beers where the head is just huge.
Smell is a sweet chocolate and molasses note. Very sweet cocoa-ish, some roastiness. Kind of one dimensional smell, however it is very nice.
Taste is very clean and robust. Lots of chocolate in this one, however not sweet like youngs double chocolate stout. Excellent.
Feel is real good, nice carb, right in the middle of the road.
Overall I like this beer, for when I have an extra 2 bucks to toss at a bomber. 6.50 is kinda steep, but is it oh so good.
