Sampled at the Acoustic Ales Tasting Room last week. Reviewed from notes.
A- Pitch black body with small light brown head poured from the taps into a small pint glass. Decent head retention and the creamy cap falls to a small ring leaving a ton of lace.
S and T- Good spicy raisins and Belgian yeast below roasty bitter chocolate powder. Huge intense roast malts, caramel sweets, toasted nuts and some coffee hints.
MF- Thick and chewy body with a creamy overall texture. Finishes with a roast burnt bitterness and some slight warming from the alcohol.
Nice mix of deeply roasted malts and Belgian yeast, which doesn't get out of hand considering the 9%+ ABV.
Serving type: on-tap

Handsome black brew in the small nonic. Beige head disappears all too soon. On tap at Public House in La Jolla.
The chocolate is not so evident at first sip. A chalky taste with a hoppy middle, followed finally by a splash of bitter chocolate. A winey character. Sweet to start off. Lots of hoppy bitterness that intensifies toward the end. A little rough and more grainy. One could wish for more of the supposed milk chocolate and less of the bitter.
If there is any Belgian influence it is not detectable to me. It all sounds good in the lengthy name, though. Blind tasted I think this would be rated as an above average stout, whatever its DNA and ingredients.
