Growler served in a Unibroue snifter.
Pours nearly black with reddish-brown edges: used motor oi is brought to mind. Very little head and a little bit of spotty lacing (blamed on growler serving type).
S: Big aroma of dark malts (dominant), dark bread and dark chocolate. [4.25]
T: Flavor follows, but with hints of coffee and light smoke that linger into the aftertaste, and some oats and spicy hops. Mildly sweet up front and mildly bitter in the finish. Good balance every which way in an ale loaded with flavor.
M: Full body with light carbonation.
O: a rich, highly flavored ale that is extreme but not challenging. Character changes with warming. High ABV is fairly well hidden.
Serving type: growler

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.
