From a 750 ml bottle into a snifter.
A-The beer is completely black and opaque. A normal pour produced a two-finger, dark brown head. The foam dropped pretty quickly into a ring around the glass.
S-The smell is pure chocolate (milk chocolate and dark chocolate) and roasted malts. One-dimensional, but I guess that is what you get when you buy a double chocolate stout.
T-Taste is also pure chocolate (more bitter dark than milk chocolate, though) and slightly bitter malts. I found the taste to be a little simple...just because this is a chocolate stout doesn't mean other complexities can't be allowed to complement the main flavor.
M-The feel was medium to heavy with a slightly aggressive (for the style) carbonation.
O-This beer is something of a one-trick pony. The chocolate flavor is almost overpowering and I could have used a bit more complexity to balance things out. That being said, this IS a double chocolate stout, so I cannot judge too harshly for being heavy on the chocolate.
