3.76/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Develops no head, but rather turns a Cicso fisheye pint glass chocolate brown, while leaving a viscous film with each sip.

The aroma is bittersweet dark chocolate that becomes more of a chocolate syrup in the middle with lactose sweetness. Roasted malt is mixed with dustiness.

Roasted malt comes out up front with sweet chocolate. Late, mild bitterness continues to build long into a modest finish.

A full, lush body that has a creamy smooth texture, light carbonation, and coats the palate.

This is a relaxing dark beer to be enjoyed in the late afternoon or before dinner.

This was my first experience with the crowler, which I find to be a great concept. The only down side I can see is that the can is only recyclable and not reusable.

Requires two, very separate pours. Thick lasting one-finger head. Near black color where no light shines through. The lace is blanketing the glass but it subsides to very sharp mountain peaks.

Mocha and chalky are the first impressions of the smell.

Very smooth, nitrogen induced feel. Lots of chocolate (dark, Baker's chocolate). Only in the aftertaste do I get a lingering coffee flavor. Basically, this would giv the native Irish stouts a run for the money. Chewy body but with an appropriate nitrogen, fine-bubbled infusion.

On tap at The Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a thick dark black, with a small foamy head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like rich milk chocolate, ashy roasted malt, a little bit of smoke, and some coffee.

This is way delicious. It's actually surprising how delicious it is- it's Singlecut, so I knew it'd be solid, but it's got a such a full flavor and body to it for the lower ABV. There's a lot of chocolate, some coffee, big roasted malt character, and some vanilla.

This is medium bodied, with a super creamy mouthfeel, and a moderate level of carbonation.

Another big winner from Singlecut.

On Nitro tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Picturesque pint. Tan shaving foam head that leaves a dense lacing as I gulp away. Neither chocolate nor coffee are apparent but there is good flavors in here. Mostly malts. Vague sweetness. A very understated, but enjoyable nonetheless, stout.

On tap at The Three Monkeys in NYC. Dark and lovely in the glass with a nice head and lacing. Deep rich roasted grains and dark chocolate nose with a light char and sugar.
Taste is like the nose with a big roast flavor that flows into the bitter chocolate and lactose sweetness. . Feel is full and velvety. Super easy drinking with a satisfying swallow. I'll have another!

Had at the brewery. SO smooth. Like a chocolate Guiness, with more body. Dark bittersweet chocolate and subtle vanilla (?) Super easy to drink, very good.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a deep brown hue with a one finger frothy tan head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a soft chocolate a d a touch of dry roasted malt.

The taste consisted of a soft chocolate, with lactose and a touch of dry charcoal.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty sweet stout.

At the brewery with James

A: Nitro pour, super thick head which lasts and lasts and lasts. Perfect.

S: Chocolate! Followed by semi-sweet malt and a hint of roast. Overall reminded me of liquid semi-sweet chocolate.

T: Liquid semi-sweet chocolate really sums it up! Super thick and rich but goes down VERY SMOOTHLY and easily. Maybe just the faintest touch of booze but I'm really searching for that. So easy to drink.

M: Lush, smooth

O: Excellent brew, wish it was on tap more frequently.
