Pours a very deep dark black with a 1.5 finger head, and beautiful lacing. The smell is smooth chocolate with mild roast on the back end. It's easy on the mouth with smooth chocolate taste, with a little roasted bit bite at the end. This is a very good chocolate stout with repeat drinkability. If you don't like stouts or never had one this is a must.

Arrived with a one finger dark tan head. Clear dark brown.
Smells of cocoa and maybe a touch of roasted malt. The cocoa really dominates.
The taste is also dominated by chocolate. There is a slight roastiness detectable but it is upstaged by the cocoa. A moderate bitterness comes in at the end. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly sticky.
This is one of the better chocolate stouts I have had. I would definitely get it again.

I opened this and poured into an oversized wineglass. not the correct glass I know.
Upon pouring a little smoke comes out. It pours with a one to two finger head that laces and settles. The body color is blackish brown but very very dark and opaque. The color of the head is a creamy light brownish.
It smells of chocolate, some hops, and some grain. The chocolate smell is not too dominating or robust that all you smell is chocolate. You can smell hops and grain too. However, the other two smells are faint in the disguise of chocolate. Not like drinking chocolate syrup or milk by any means. It still tastes of beer.
It tastes of chocolate and grain, and a bit of hops. The beginning taste is of chocolaty hops and grain, but the aftertaste is a nice overtone of milk chocolate in a sort of sweet/bitter way. I really enjoy this chocolaty taste in this beer.
The mouthfeel is a smooth feeling but its sticky at the same time. It is still very drinkable.
Overall this is a great beer. Its pricey but worth the money. The chocolate tones in this beer make it a great buy. I highly recommend it.
