Appearance: Pitchblack, about as dark as a beer comes. I poured it straight down the middle, and there was very little head that appeared at the top, but what did appear was dark, cappuccino color.
Smell: An incredible aroma of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, roasted barley, and even a little alcohol. This stout is certainly living up to its name at this point.
Taste: A huge hit of chocolate and roast barley bitterness up front, then a nice smooth milk chocolate flavor that runs in with the lingering bitterness. Not overly sweet though, a lot of bitterness coming from different places, and incredible chocolate complexity.
Mouthfeel: A nice level of carbonation, not flat by any means, and a nice smoothness on the finish. The bitterness provides the bite, not the carbonation.
Overall: Many of the best chocolate stouts seem to be complex stouts with chocolate added to them. This one showcases a very unique complexity on the chocolate front as well. There is a very nice bitterness bite at first, then a smooth milk chocolate that lingers through the finish. One of my favorite stouts I have ever had, and something I would recommend to anyone looking for a very chocolatey and complex stout.

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.
