served in a 10 oz tulip glass, on draft at Ron's in Exton. reviewed from notes.
As dsa7783 pointed out, Flying Fish can be hit or miss with some of their offerings, but I was eager to try this one. It didn't disappoint.
The smell of Exit 13 didn''t hit me over the head- there were strains of cocoa, nutmeg, burnt wood, and a hint of citrus fruit. It poured with a finger of head and a little lacing, with an opaque black appearance that's typical of most stouts.
Once in the mouth, Exit 13 was medium in weight, with a smooth and creamy feel.
The taste was the best aspect of this beer- it was certainly among the best chocolate stouts I've had. The first part of the taste was the sweet bitterness of baker's chocolate, followed by hints of toffee, salt, and roasted malt. It was delicately sweet and mild, but had a very full dark chocolate taste. There was no coffee flavor present whatsoever, which sometimes come across in chocolate stouts. Not this one- it tasted like pure roasted cocoa beans. Exit 13 finished exceptionally smoothly- definitely a beer which you could have a few of and not think twice.
Definitely a must-try for those who like this style.

750mL bottle poured into tulip
Dark, charred brown color with opaque bleakness. Crop of tanned head slowly fades out, leaving some spots of lacing dotted around the glass.
Chocolate, bittersweet chocolate and chocolate malts. Roasted dark malts and a hint of alcohol warmth.
Slightly syrupy chocolate runs throughout the profile. Hints of bitterness with dark roasted malts, molasses and a soft detection of caramel and vanilla. Finishes warm and chocolatey.
Medium body, decent carbonation, bubbly and a little flat/thin on the tongue. Probably should have opened this one a long time ago but it got a bit lost in the shuffle of bottles in my fridge/cellar, although this still feels extremely one-note.
