22oz red paint bottle to my Stone IRS snifter glass
Notes taken from 04/05/14

A: Dark espresso brown body completely impervious to any light. A thick billow of dark khaki cream forms giving quite the impressive hang time. Has a few random large gas bubbles in an otherwise nicely compacted head. Some slippery swaths of lace left sliding down the glass at each sip.

S: Smells of chocolate malts, dark roast grains, and milk chocolate chips. More so like melted Hershey’s chocolate candies. Aroma really does come together like malted milk balls. Delivers as advertised although it is more candy like rather than say raw cacao.

T: Big fake chocolate candy flavor. Like melted candies with a thick and powdery chocolate malt ball presence. Not particularly roasty minus a hint of coffee in there. Fairly sweet but not at all cloying like you would expect. Finishes out with some earthy green bitterness on the back end. Alcohol is well masked and bitterness is moderate to low. Doesn’t taste natural to me has more of a tootsie roll flavor. A little tough to drink in its entirety.

M: Full to medium body. Frothy and smooth for the most part with some of that chalky cocoa powder presence. Finish has a nice drying lift and the retreat is fairly clean.

D: Not a very big fan and looks like I may be in the minority here. I prefer stouts where the chocolate flavor is derived mainly from the specialty dark roast malts and/or natural cocoa. This just comes off as Swiss Miss or something artificial. How is no one else getting that? Even though it states Natural Flavors added who knows what that entails.

The bomber was a bit of a chore to finish. Ice Cream is the correct answer.
