Reviewed from notes taken on 6/16/11.
Choklat pours dark, dark brown, close to black, in color. The head is a pretty mocha-tan and sits at a finger tall after a medium-hard pour into a snifter. Small, splotchy lacing is left behind on the glass post-sip.
The smell yields loads and loads of dark chocolate. It reminds me of a really dark and thick chocolate shake. A hint of caramel resides in the bouquet, along with just the smallest whiff of alcohol.
The taste is an ooey gooey dark chocolate bomb that has much more of a supporting caramel flavor than I smelled. It makes me think of a dark chockate version of a Rolo. The aftertaste is pretty roasty, with a little acidity, and lingering overtones of chocolate.
The mouthfeel is silky smooth on my tongue, with a pretty full-bodied and coating syrupyness. At the end of each sip there is a rather biting and acidic roastiness, accompanied by a little sting on the throat from the alcohol.
This is a great chocolate stout. It is so rich and flavorful and is, by far, my favorite Southern Tier beer. They really hit a home run with this one!
