12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch light tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, cream/lactose, and a light minerally aroma. It tastes mostly just like the aroma is, like dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and some minerals. For some reason this brew really reminds me of drinking an oyster stout. And since I like those, it's a good thing in this case. But even then I have no idea why I'm picking that flavor up in this brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and has a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a good brew, I know I won't have any problems finishing this 6-pack! $10.99 a sixer.

Poured from a bottle into my trusty Left Hand Brewing big Tulip glass. My expectations are high as the lads from Fat Head have yet to disappoint.

A - Very dark black coffee coloring, with a very rich tan head that recedes and leaves a slight lacing and a thin layer on top

S - As expected, gobs of chocolate, slight hint of vanilla and a wiff of cinnamon,

T - Strong semi-sweet chocolate on the front end, some nice toasty malts and a smooth vanilla finish.

M - Creamy, medium bodied and medium carbonation.

O - This is a very drinkable beer more subdued than I expected but very tasty, the lads did not disappoint.

Cute label. Solid black color with about 3/4" of tan head. The foam laces a little bit.

Dark chocolate and berries and plum in the nose. Soft maltiness with a hearty roast. Yeast smells like this stout has a Belgian flair with that fruitiness. Not picking much, if any, vanilla.

No lactose present, rather mostly berried and chocolaty in flavor. Vanilla appears in the background and grows in the finish. Bitterness is a little bigger than I was expecting, but it keeps the drinkability high and worrying about too much sweetness forgettable. The roast is more showy, too. Good flavors, not overdone.

Full and creamy, but the aggressor is a vibrant carbonation that scuffs across the tongue. Hardly a trace of booze. Well-balanced.

Delicious simple stout. Would totally recommend this to many. It's quiet for the label description, but it's a complete beer for flavor, feel, and aroma.

A-Pours dark brown with a thick creamy head that lingers
S- dark chocolate, marshmallow, some vanilla
T/M- creamy chocolate, cinnamon undertones, slight smokiness, some vanilla, lactose, milky smooth texture
O- I think I expected too much from this. The texture is pretty great but for a beer themed around chocolate, I could have gone for more. The flavors are all good but they're pretty subtle. It's pleasantly easy drinking, great tasting stout that leaves a nice chocolate aftertaste. Well done

A: Pours a rich coffee like back and rich with a nice tan head about 1/2 inch thick,sadly it dissapates rapidly.but clings to side of glass awesomely.

S: Aroma is of dark chocolate and sweet vanilla.

T: Taste is an awesome combo of semi sweet dark chocolate and rich malt base.warm and toasted with a touch of caramel its everything it claims to be on the bottle.Had mine with some smoked gouda and crackers...yummmm.

M: Rich warm and full bodied to medium bodied.Tiny bubbles arise to the top to replenish the foamy head .

O: Overall a great beer with a lot of charachter and worth looking for to try or just sit back and enjoy on a cold night.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Dark black/brown with a nice 2 inch creamy, foamy head and lots of lacing.

Smell - Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, lactose sugars, brown sugar, molasses. vanilla, fig and rasin. A little smoke and creamy note also.

Taste - Roasty malts, chocolate and cream are noticed at first sip. FLaovr is rather mild and light. Added sugars, cocoa and some creamy notes come out also. Not much hops is noticed, only minor flavors of rasin and plum. A little smokey and coffee flavor comes at the finish.

Mouthfeel - Rather mild, roasted malts, chocolate and molasses coats tounge, and palate. Aftertaste is mildy sweet, chocolate sweet and roasty.

Overall - Well this is rather tame and mild. The flavor is to mellow and forgetable really. Bells cream stout is 10x more flavorful and enjoyble. This is like a light version, how was this released? Its not bad but nothing special and nothing id seek out again.
