3.9/5 rDev -8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 22oz'er at 49F into a tulip.
A - Deep black with a moderate amount of mocha cream colored foam that fades fairly quickly. Thinnish lacing.
S - Pure chocolate. Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and just a hint of stout on the nose - malts, a pinch of hops. Definitely a bit of alcohol as well.
T - Very very chocolately. This is definitely a desert sipper. Sweet chocolate dominates at first, fading to bittersweet dark chocalate. Almost too chocolaty IMHO - wish I could sense the stout backbones a bit more. But, definitely can sense the alcohol - it is fairly well hidden in the chocolate taste, but surely is notable in the warmth as you sip. Go slow at 11% and enjoy this one after a fine meal.
M - Full bodied and creamy smooth - little in the way of carbonation, but you can always get a hot chocolate/chocolate syrup sensation as you sip this.
D - Considering the ABV, quite good, although it is almost too sweet by itself. Would surely pair well with chocolate desserts or vanilla ice cream. We split 22oz four ways, and it was definitely enough for us all - your senses just get overloaded with chocolate.

4.45/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: This beer pours a jet black color with a dark toasted caramel head.
Smell: caramel malts and vanilla, but prominently sweet chocolate.
Taste: An incredible blend of chocolate and roasted flavor blended with sweet caramel and vanilla, finishes slightly bitter with an alcohol bite.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and sweet yet it finishes bitter.
Overall: A delicious chocolate stout that has balanced sweet/bitter characteristics but has a slightly overpowering alcohol bite.
