Pours black - no light showing through when back lit - with a thick creamy tan head. Consistency of this beer appears thicker than your average. Good frothing but little lacing on a clean glass. Smells of darker malts and chocolate is easily detectable via nose. Taste reveals a sweet chocolate flavor - kind of like a Hershey bar in a bottle with some other surrounding malts. Great beer for the season.

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.

Pours a deep black color with about two fingers of coffee colored head that remains throughout most of the beer.
The scent is of sweet chocolate and roasted malt.
The taste is of sweet chocolate, roasted malt, and some notes of coffee.
Full body, smooth and very creamy, low carbonation.
This was a delicious beer, very flavorful and an easy, smooth drinkability.
