Big bottle purchased by colleague at The Bobolink, The Big, OR., $10, October 2010 bottling.
Dark brown head, a bit uneven bubbles, fairly slow dissipation with significant lacing on top of uber-dark brown opaque body, no visible carbonation. Huge frickin' dark chocolate hit in the nose, re +70% cocoa, citrusy and floral hops for balance. Taste mirrors nose, really chocolatey, hops are absolutely subsumed by the huge chocolate malt profile. Mouthfeel is on the full side of medium, some effervescence but not too much. Not sure this is the most drinkable of beers, definitely worth splitting a bottle, palate wrecker to be sure. Worth a try for fans of big ass chocolate stouts. Wondering if I shouldn't seek out that Stranahan's barrel aged version...
