Dark brown, nearly black, with a nicely sudsy pour. Suitably fizzy on the tongue. There seems to be some velvety sensation along with the lighter mouthfeel.

Dark roast malt flavors with just a hint of sweetness. Tastes like cocoa rather than dark chocolate. There is a little winey character and that touch of sweet malt. The hops are restrained but brewed with enough to leave a bitterish aftertaste.This is grainy with something like corn. Quite a mineral tang, and a little chalky.

Pleasantly drinkable dark brew. The flavoring is not too strong but there's a little vegetable taste that keeps this from being a favorite. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours opaque black with a massive half glass light brown head; kinda overcarbonated. Good retention and lots of lacing. Nice aroma of toasted malt and chocolate, light vanilla. Flavor is toasted, lightly charred malt, chocolate and coffee, rich. Medium bodied with active carbonation. A nice flavored stout, with good char notes to the malt and surprisingly rich flavor. Leans towards the roasty/charred end of the flavor spectrum, emphasizing malt and coffee over the expected chocolate. Body is thinner than I anticipated, but probably because the flavor is more robust than I expected from a 5.2% stout. A worthy effort from a consistantly good brewery.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an almost opaque super brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and vanilla aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and coffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors.

Poured a deep jet black color with very weak carbonation leaving a very weak tannish head. Nose is roasted grain, chocolate and coffee. Taste is mor along the line of a traditional stout, chocolate was not a key player as I was expecting by the name. However, the stout was tasty with hints of roasted grains, coffee. This beer is lighter and very drinkable, just throw some more chocolate in there to match the name.
