A - Pours a very opaque dark brown, almost black. Has a creamy tan head, leaving a nice lacing.

S - Deep roasted malts, heavy on the chocolate.

T - Chocolate is heavy throughout, but not too sweet or overbaring. Has a bitter kick at the end. Everything working together nicely and hides the alcohol too well.

M - Silky and creamy, medium body with perfect carbonation.

Overall I love this stout. It's been my go to the past couple weeks. I feel the chocolate on this is just right, not too sweet. Definitely worthy of it's rating.

Absolute chocolate bomb. Delicious but not something I want to drink often. Very similar to Southern Tier Chokolat in its utter lack of subtlety.

Very nice! Not sweet and sugary tasting like milk chocolates. More like dark unsweetened bitter chocolate!

This is a fifth bottle (750 ml), purchased for $13.99 (pricey! sorta). The label mentions oatmeal, honey and chocolate as additions. I get a little chuckle every time I read "free range coastal water". "Coastal water"? Would that not be brine, dear sirs and madams?

A semi-aggressive pour produces about a 2 inch tan head, poured into a shaker. It froths up more than you might expect, given the ABV. I suppose it's on account of the oatmeal. The beer is inky inky dark brown and will not pass light from a Mini Maglite.

Chocolate is very apparent in the aroma-flavor, along with plenty of dark fruit (cherry, plums) and a delicious earthy bitterness that probably stems as much from the actual chocolate as from hops. Maybe a bit of coffee flavor, presumably from roasted malts. It's sweet but not overly so. A little jolt of pucker in the finish. Very creamy mouth feel from the oatmeal. The ABV is well hidden except to add a little bit of a spicy kick. I'm trying to detect the honey- it must be very subtle- I can't detect any mead-like flavors or aromas.

Chocolate lovers will surely go for this- it's excellent, perhaps world class, and probably the best choco beer out there.
