I've had this out of the bottle several times over now, which is saying something for the price point. I keep coming back because it's a great beer to show to people regardless of their experience with beer: the amount of chocolate is truly something to behold. In all seriousness: if anyone knows of a beer more chocolaty than this one, please let me know.

Appearance: Big, brown-black brew with great lacing and a two-finger crown of pure milk-chocolate head. Billowy head, great lacing, and a great color? I'm on board so far.

Smell: Chocolate. Lots of chocolate. Milk chocolate mixed with melted Hershey's bar and chocolate milk. Patent malt is there, as is some honey sweetness, but there's no two ways about it: this is a chocolate bomb, through and through.

Taste: Wow, who'd have guessed: more chocolate! It's Chocolate Stout Jr. on steroids. The nose is almost underwhelming for how chocolaty this beer is. Every sip just brought on more roasty, slick, milky chocolate. It can get a little sweet on the back end, and definitely is a need-to-be-in-the-mood-for-it kind of brew, but when you are, this brings the chocolate and it brings it hard.

Mouthfeel: Not as thick as I would hope for, but then again, it's not even 9%. For an Imperial Stout, that's slightly low for what I've come to expect. It comes through in the mouthfeel. However, aftertaste is very chocolaty and not overly dry, so we're still in play. Not too bitter, and in fact, the IBUs are only 50. That's pretty low for other stouts in class.

Drinkability: This beer is the ultimate mood beer. If you're with anyone in the mood for chocolate, this beer will absolutely not let you down. Some beers say they taste chocolaty, while other beers just are. This beer may be the king of latter. Now would I want this every day? No. Would I want 22oz of it by myself? Probably very rarely. But for the right occasion? You betcha.
