look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Served in a shaker pint glass.

What is it with me and crazily-flavored stouts when I head over to VDubb's? Regardless, this stuff pours a straight onyx topped by a finger of light khaki foam. The nose comprises dark chocolate syrup, light roasted malts, ginger, light vanilla bean, and a touch of mild coffee. The taste brings in more of the same, the exotic spices listed on the label not really coming through, yielding instead to something of a sweet stout character. The body is a stolid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly fluid feel. Overall, a pretty tasty stout, one that I kinda wish did actually exhibit the advertised spices and whatnot, but it's solid regardless.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured into a snifter from a 22oz bottle. A small light tan head that dissipates quickly. Nice lacing that fades quickly. Beer is dark brown nearly black.
S - Smell is dominated by ginger and cardamom. Some vanilla and chocolate barely seeps in.
T - Ginger and cardamom are heavy up front. Roasted flavors of coffee and cherry follow and hop bitterness attempts to make an appearance. There's some vanilla in the finish, but still a lot of ginger and cardamom. An ever so slight spicy pepper flavor remains in the aftertaste.
M - Medium body and medium carbonation. Not bad for the style, but could use a little more chewiness.
O - The flavors assert themselves more as the beer warms, but they still are a bit jumbled. The ginger and cardamom dominate and don't let the underlying chocolate, vanilla, and coffee come through. This is close to being really good, but just misses the mark.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle: This bottle from Clown shoes shows a rocking band, and I appreciate a great bottle design especially when I still have eyes to see it, awesome job guys.

Appearance: Black as night, not see through, with a finger and a half head.

Smell: Fresh chocolate like the smell of an Easter morning as a young lad.

Taste: I don't really taste all the craziness listed on the label but its good so fuck it. Chocolate and not very bitter.

Mouth fell: Nice, full bodied.

Overall; I like this beer, its chocolate, its a stout and with an ABV of 10% it will kick that skinny ass of yours.
