4.4/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

We pour a syrupy brew of the deepest, most impenetrable browns. It holds a brief one finger head of medium brown bubbles, which recedes rather quickly into a large congregation of bubbles towards one side of the glass. No sediment is noted, as the beer is so dark, and a light carbonation seems to snail to the top. For lack of a better description the aroma mirrors that exactly of a chocolate tootsie pop. This mixes with extraordinarily rich malts, which are a glorious blend of caramel and chocolate. Despite this there is not a huge roast, which one might expect. The chocolate additions themselves make the smells both sweeter and more bitter, with a dash of chalky dryness. As it warms the hearty abv begins to poke its head out. As we sip, chocolate infused roasty and toasty malts crash the palate. The initial showing is of sweetened milk chocolate. Where the nose dose a nice job of masking the alcohol, it is no stranger in the taste, even from the get go. This adds, however, a pleasing burn and warmth to the sip. The middle actually sees an enhancement of the alcohol. This mixes with a dark fruit character, which brings up thoughts of dark cherry. We finish on peppery notes of the darkest chocolate. The aftertaste breathes of charcoal, cocoa, booze, and a metallic lick of coin. The body is full and the carbonation is light to medium. The feel to each sip is sticky and sweet, and has got to be one of the softest beers we’ve felt to date. It is outstandingly silky and smooth, with an unmatched slurp and smack, while somehow remaining light and airy. The abv is high, but appropriate, and the beer drinks like chocolate milk washing down a plate of Grandma’s chocolate chip cookies.

Overall, what we found most enjoyable about this brew was how the chocolate finds a nice gradation, moving from sweet to bitter through the progression of the flavor profile. Of note otherwise is the mouthfeel, which has extraordinary character, while remaining so light. This is an exemplary chocolate stout, and is a force to be reckoned with.

3.8/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bomber poured into stone snifter.

Pours a solid dark black with some mocha head. Aroma is an incredibly pungent chocolate smell, some vanilla and sweet caramel but barely distinguishable due to the chcolate. Taste is similar and fairly, except it has a strange taste towards the end due to the fake chocolate flavoring. This beer could be much better if they used real chocolate and not some nasty fake chemical flavoring.
