22oz bomber poured into a Chimay goblet. Neshaminy Creek Brewing has just started distributing to NJ this month and this one they didn't have at the AC Beerfest and being a fan of Stouts I was too curious about the description of this one.

AP: 1/4" tan thin bubbly head that quickly dissipates to a thin ribbon around the glass and a silver dollar sized patch in the center. Colour is deep rich dark brown.
AR: Chocolate is the main aroma with hints of marshmallow, black bread and very faint graham cracker. Inviting.
T: Chocolate at first with the marshmallow following up. Don't really get the graham cracker as it seems to get lost or drowned in the other flavours. I get some of the 11.6% ABV heat mixed in there, but not too much to put me off. A little of the black bread is there and at the end the chocolate turns more bitter like baking chocolate with a note of espresso.
M: The best part of this beer, I think. A bit crisp at first from the carbonation, which fades and then it's creamy and silky with an almost oily smooth finish. Not chewy like you might expect from a RIS, more like an Imperial Milk Stout if such a thing existed.
OV: A solid brew that while it doesn't have a complexity of flavours, the ones that are there are pretty tasty and enjoyable. Body could be a bit heartier. (1,301 characters)

1/27...bomber pours all out black. Thick as midnight, light rings of brown foam. Thick coffee nose, picks up the graham crackers too. Rich robust flavor, as kinds of tastes. Dark chocolate, coffee, milk, and the smore tastes are there too (but only b/c I am looking for it). The depth of flavor masks the alcohol, but it is in there. The result is outstanding. (360 characters)
