I had this last year in October and a week ago. Served in a pint glass at People's.

Appearance: Heavy doses of chocolate malt in this dark stout, hence the name. It is straight up black with a tan/mocha head which didn't last long.

Smell: The nose is roasted malt and slight cocoa powder.

Taste: Taste is roasted cocoa and very malt heavy, obvious due to the chocolate malt.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel needs to be bigger, it has the flavor but drinks too lightly. This would probably be better on nitro.

Good offering, thankfully People's is finished with their expansion and are rolling out darker beers for the colder months. Hope they bring back Captain Blackstrap, their Russian Imperial Stout.

Had this on tap a few times at People's Brewing Company before interviewing it officially =)

The appearance is dark chocolate brown with a frothy pale tan head. Scent is a heady bittersweet chocolate, with a little extra 'bitter'sweet attitude. Love the scent of this!

Dark chocolate bittersweet rich-bodied taste awaits, with a slight caramel on finish. As this warms, I taste toasted marshmellow. I don't know why, probably some scent/taste memory of S'mores from when I was a kid, but there you go! Marshmellow/caramel on finish! =)

A very lovely chocolate stout - and go ahead and toast up some S'mores to have it with this fall! You deserve it!

Wow, this is an awesome chocolate stout! Had it on tap at Twenty Tap in Indy. Poured a wonderfully dark brown with good head and a bit of decent lacing. Very nice scent with good roasted grains underneath, a slight earthiness end, and a wonderful chocolate aroma throughout, with the scents merging quite nicely. Wonderful flavors with great roasted grains, the tiniest of coffee flavors, a wonderful earthy/floral bitter ending and with fantastic chocolate flavors throughout the entire drink; the chocolate merges with everything without battling anything. It went down creamy, thick, smooth, and wonderful. Nicely done!
