4.38/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - 1+ inch of foamy head on dark, brown ale. Opaque. I'm thinking chocolate milk. Nice lacing.

S - Chocolate, duh, but not overpowering. Roasted coffee. Slight nuttiness

T - Initially - chocolate, intertwined with some malt and hops - malty last and there's the chocolate on the finish. Simple dark/milk chocolate blend. Is this beer??? Tasty. The maltiness seems to settle the chocolate to more of a milk chocolate taste - but its so rich. A chocolate lover's beer. There is a roasted component to all of this this - but it settles out nicely on the finish.

M - Fits the brew. Not overly coating or overbearing, which would take away from the taste profile.

D - Alcohol isnt detected... if you like this style, you could probably have more than one. It isnt cloying whatsoever.

Excellent job, FF.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pouts very dark, almost black with dark tan head that I found to disappear quickly.

The smell is the highlight. Very strong bittersweet chocolate, almost cherry like, but background of "roasted" scent.

I found the taste a little lacking. Can definitely taste the chocolate, but otherwise a good, but not exceptional stout.

4.35/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a shaped pint glass with a jet black body that has dark brown highlights around the edges in the light. Dense milk chocolate color two-finger head with good retention and lacing. Smells like bitter-sweet baker's chocolate and some toasted/burnt grain. Taste is 80% dark chocolate combined with a grainy characteristic and some burnt sugar/caramel. Feels kind-of syrupy and thick but carbonation lightens up the body, maybe a bit too much carbonation but only slightly. I think Flying Fish should consider making this a seasonal beer.

3.9/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured into my snifter. Pours an opague black with a very thick creamy brown headingunderneath of more bubbly coco-cola looking heading. Decent lacing and does leave ringlets.

Smell is fantastic. Heavy barley and bittersweet chocolates, Some ashy aroma's as well as burnt malts.

Taste and mouth have the same burnt - ashy character I described in the nose.There is a smokiness to this beer that plays well with the hints of chocolate.A rather thin bodied beer in the mouth than I would have anticipated and is kind of flat and watery in the overall mouthfeel.Just not enough umphff.

A nice change of pace and has decent drinkability . As for the chocolate stout itself I thought this was a score but left me feeling unfulfilled.

I poured from a bomber into a snifter, jet black pour with a sticky white 2 inch head. The aroma is melted hershey's bars. The flavor is mostly chocolate, not overpowering. There are nice vanilla notes in it, finishes with a lingering chocolate. IMO the body is too light and it hurts the mouth feel. A solid chocolate beer, a little more body would have really improved this one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Aromas of roasted wheat and cocoa, some lesser toasted biscuity malts with a lingering hint of vanilla .

The taste is straight Hershey's cocoa with lesser amounts of fluffy toasted wheat. The chocolate adds a nice slight bitter character but the sweetness balances it out immediately.
Mouthfeel is perfect; not too thick or think very creamy yet a dry finish. It has a good taste that hangs for a bit. Overall one of the top 3 chocolate beers I have had to date next to Rogue's 2x chocolate stout and original chocolate stout.

A: dark brown with a chocolaty colored head.

S: sweet coccoa and slight hints of vanilla

T: sweet chocolate taste with hints of sugar flavor.

M: light and watery, with a slightly creamy finish.

D: I could have a few glasses of this as a dessert by itself. Its pretty tasty and not too rich or high in alcohol. Overall a decent beer.
