On tap at Mohawk Bend in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, and cinnamon. Taste is much the same with a semisweet cocoa powder flavor 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 very good beer with some great aromas and tasty flavors.

Cursory review from notes. On-tap @ Tony's Darts Away. Served in a snifter. Described as a double-chocolate imperial stout...
Seal brown body with thin lion head which dissipates to a lasting sheen. Average lacing, light legs.
Aroma suggests milk chocolate, caramel, and faint tobacco and anise.
Fairly sweet palate entry which again suggests more caramel than chocolate, though there is a bit more cocoa in the finish. Pleasing roasted/specialty malt base though there is something almost artificial about the profile which keeps it from being truly excellent.
Velvety, not-quite-full bodied mouthfeel with perfect carbonation for the style. Alcohol adds flavor without excessive heat.
Imperfect, but still a strong and subtle offering from Smog City.

Reviewed from notes. New batch with Ghana and El Salvador cocoa nibs.
A: Pours black with a thin (1/4-inch) dark motor oil head which fades to the rim leaving a few spots of lace.
N: Dark chocolate, roast, and cream. Served a bit too cold so let this warm up.
T: ABV well hidden, bitter dark chocolate and roasted grains. Faint earthyness.
M: Full body and light carbonation. Rich, decadently deep dark chocolate. Slightly oily and viscous bitter finish.
O: Very nice, well done.
