look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark chocolate brown with a thin quick to fade tan colored head atop.Chocolate and dark fruit aromas mainly with mild roast.Chocolate and roasted flavors some dark fruit underneath,some earthiness in the finish.Eh it's ok but pretty standard,not anything I would seek out again.

North Peak Dubious

A- pour yields a 1 finger mocha colored head receding quick. Beer is black in color. Lacing is minimal. 3

S- some good roast and bakers chocolate on the nose. Some cocoa and caramel as well. 3.75

T- subpar. A real letdown from the nose. Very subdued in flavor, which doesn't let the chocolate or malt shine. Sad. Almost a mineral water taste as well. Not pleasing. 2

M- light body and over carbonated. 2

O- a poor stout. I would not recommend it, especially at the absurd price of $18/6-pack. 1.5

D-

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/19/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, caramel, toast, dark bread, herbal, light char, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/roasted malt, cocoa, and light earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, herbal, light char, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Light earthy herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, coffee, toast, dark bread, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt , chocolate, and moderate herbal hop flavors; with decent complexity and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, creamy, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid chocolate stout. Good balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt, chocolate, and herbal hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Bottled on 12/19/13.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, chocolate syrup, and char aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and char flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a chocolate presence that comes across slightly better in the aroma in my opinion.
