Thanks to atsprings for sharing a 22 oz. bottle
Pours an opaque black body under a creamy tan head that reduces to a film and leaves some lacing.
Aromas of dark chocolate predominate the nose with some charred bread notes as well.
The flavor is what you would expect: bitter chocolate from the malt and use of actual chocolate in the beer. With warmth the bitter aspect dies down a bit and it mellows to a nice full stout with some more sweetness.
A slightly shy of full mouthfeel with ample carbonation is also a plus. I found myself enjoying this one from first sip to last. The bitter chocolate thing I like, so this stout was right up my alley.
