Poured from bottle into Mad Elf chalice glass
A- Motor oil black body with a glorious two and a half finger, pillowy, mocha-colored head.
S- A heavy chocolate astrigency...sweet chocolate syrup aroma is dominant to me with notes of milk chocolate and malt peeking in there. So chocolatey its amazing.
T- It has a bitterness from the hops up front followed by the chocolate. Some hints of oat peek in there as well. Bitterness lingers a little bit on the back end. Not as chocolately in the tase as in the nose, but still nice.
M- Heavy-bodied beer that leaves an oily coating on the mouth and throat with each swallow. Well done.
O- This is a top notch chocolate stout that is up there in that elite class with Southern Tier Choklat. The only thing that could be improved is that the bitterness could be toned down to really let the chocolate come alive more in the taste. All in all, a standout chocolate stout by any measure.
