Thanks to Matrix64015 for this one.
Poured from a bottle
Appearance. Oily black with a dark amber hue in the light. A frothy reddish brown head that dissipated rather quickly, leaving a halo around the glass. No residual lacing to speak of.
Smell. Strong bittersweet chocolate aroma, faint roasty espresso note, bold pure cocoa finish.
Taste. Chocolate. Sweet chocolate chips, bold dry 70% cacao bar, roasty cold coffee, sweet creamy milk chocolate finish. YUM. Not boozy at all considering the 11.5 ABV. Sweet enough to be a dessert beer. Very enjoyable.
Mouthfeel. Smooth and creamy like the finest hot chocolate you've ever had. Silky and oily, but enjoyable. Not cloying at all for how sweet it is.
Overall. A great beer. Excited that I finally got one of these. A bit sweet for my normal liking, but I like it a lot. I would liken it to CBS with how well the sweetness works without being overpowering. I would drink this one again anytime if I can get my hands on another.

Poured a 22oz into a goblet.
A: pours a real nice pitch black velvet with a sharp thin carbonation dissipating quickly. Pretty color on the head but quickly goes to a flat appearance. Not an issue. How I like my stouts.
S: Real nice coffee like fair trade. Bitter chocolate. Real clean. No off putting bitterness.
T: Amazing. Reminds me a lot of brunch weasel. The coffee is so clean and integrates well with the subtle chocolate. A lot of stouts I want bourbon barrel aged to hide some things or enhance. Not this guy.
M: Damn near perfect from start to finish. Long finish leaving u with a refined chocolate lingering non-syrupy feel. No alcohol burn.
Overall: Pretty shocked. Not expecting much thinking this was gonna be another marked up international offering that would rival a stone ris. Not the case here. Going back for more prob not to age though. One of those rare stouts I can't see barrel aging benefiting.
