4.13/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

I'm admittedly partial to Appalachian since they have a location very near me and I occasionally employ their offerings in keg format for work functions. At the same time, I've never had anything there I didn't enjoy.

This was a very good example of a chocolate stout. Nice and rich and thick, without being over the top.

A - Would be higher, but the head wasn't really thick and didn't stay around long. Deep dark golden brown. What head there was, was a very dark tan that hinted at the flavors to come.

S - Raw cocoa and coffee notes. Nice, but not as strong as I might expect.

T - Not as much coffee as I get on the nose and a wonderfully balanced amount of bittersweet chocolate flavor. Good mix of bitter and sweet from start to finish of each drink.

M - Pleasantly thick and rife with that sticky frothy feel you expect from the fine carbonation of a good stout.

0 - Yeah, I should probably go back and give it a higher score. I'm really enjoying this one.

On tap at red robin in Hershey Pa
Review from notes, drank on Sunday March 17th, 2013

It had a dark chocolcate color body with a small tan head that hung around for a little bit. Its aroma was of cocoa and roasted malt with a hint of coffee. The taste had a roasted coffee flavor upfront and then as it warms up, the chocolate comes in to play. It has a sweet flavor. The mouthfeel is very smooth and leaves a lite chocolate after taste.

On tap at Red Robin's, Hershey PA:

In a non-iced pint glass:

A: dark brown/black body yields an off-white/tan one finger head, lotsa light sediment floating around, light tan lacing slides down

S: deep dark chocolate, light coffee and malts come out once the beer warms a bit

T: mainly sweet through the chocolate, coffee becomes practically non-present in the taste

M: medium, sweet and creamy, sweet sticky aftertaste, dry finish, not as sessionable

O: this was perhaps closer to a milk/sweet stout because of the sweet complexities that come out in it, however, this was still a good beer that impressed me as I found as I got to the bottom of this one that was real chunks of chocolate floating around, I'd probably get this one again as a dessert
