16 ounce pint - $7.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Inky black body with fizzling head the color of toasted khaki-colored pants.
Smell: Sniff it up! Smells like choklat, er, I mean double chocolaty.
Taste: Roasty, caramel-coated malts adulterated with a strong dark bittersweet chocolate flavor. Touch of dark fruitiness. You can tell there's a bitterness present, but any hop flavor is entombed beneath the chocolate. Very minute amount of astringency arrives late, striking the back of the tongue. Splash of Starbuck's VIA instant coffee. Sliver of alcohol warmth. Longly lingering chocolate taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium-low carbonation. Velvety, weighty mouthfeel.
Drinkability: Did you enjoy Choklat? Then, you should enjoy this as well. Did you dig Double Chocolate Stout? Then, you should dig Choklat, too. Although, the three percentage points less alcohol is appreciated.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a nice thick black with a tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. You need to agressively pour to produce a head. Smells like a typical chocolate stout. Seeing that this is a "double" chocolate stout I was anticipating a very strong chocolate flavor. More of a coffee flavor. Not as strong as I was expecting. Not too sweet but just a nice decent amount of sweetness. The bitterness is very mild. Overall, a typical chocolate stout but a bit of a letdown with the marketing.
