look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
22oz Bottle, bottled on March 29 2012 (a little bit under 2 months old)
A- Pours a completely opaque pitch black with a very thin layer of mocha brown head. Can see tiny carbonation bubbles rising quickly to the top of the glass. About average carbonation for a stout.
S- Strong smell of cocoa, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and hints of oak. Definitely strongly aromatic, could smell while pouring
T- Intense chocolate- cocoa, dark chocolate, a little bit of coffee, vanilla imparted from the oak chips, a little bit bitter on the finish, sweet chocolate aftertaste.
M- Smooth, well balanced, abv well hidden, a little bit of heat on the finish to let you know it is there but nothing too intense. A little bit on the heavier side, but not syrupy.
O- This was a fantastic beer. Nice chocolate taste that was just the right sweetness. Not too sweet but sweet enough that the taste was great and the abv was well hidden. Not too syrupy which I hate with some imperials. The oak adds nice character to the beer adding a vanilla taste that blends well with the chocolate taste. After having the Espresso Yeti, I would have to say the Chocolate is just as good.
