Easily the most chocolatey beer on the nose i've ever smelled. Smells like melted chocolate chips...not even a bittersweet chocolate either. Just a rather sweet cocoa smell. Like Hershey's syrup.
Pours jet black in the glass with minimal head.
The taste is definitely full of sweet, dark chocolate. Very viscous and thick. There's no doubt in my mind that this is the most chocolatey beer I've had to date. This tastes as if I were to melt down some Dove dark chocolate squares and add alcohol to it. Sweet, thick, alcoholic. I will say that the heat isn't very heavy here considering it's 11 percent alcohol. Only on the finish do I get some semblence of roasted, somewhat bitter chocolate notes. Compared to the sweetness on the body though, it's minimal. This is a sweet beer.
This has to be my favorite chocolate stout thus far. I'm very impressed with it. Some may be turned off with the sugary nature of it, but it's attractive to me. However, I WILL say that I wouldn't drink more than 1 of these. Not only because I'd be drunk if I did, but the sweetness is a bit overwhelming after a while.

This one pours a pure blackness that is dark as the darkest night with no moon or stars. There is a moderate thickness to the head that is rich and pillowy and tan that settles extremely slowly and leaves a shallow ring down the glass as opposed to lacing.
The nose is a fruity bourbon with notes of chocolate, coffee, anise, cardamon, vanilla, toast and raspberries.
The taste is very sharp and the alcohol has a definite bite that combines with the hops to attack the palate and dominate then gives way to a very complex smokey malt filled with a variety of flavors of smoke, bourbon, apples, bananas, coffee, chocolate, vanilla with a subtle peppery tinge in the finish.
The moutfeel is fairly creamy and the beer is a heavy one, especially for an American Stout.
Overall this is an exceptional stout that is very easy to enjoy. I found it went extremely well with some sushi.
