4.18/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Serving type is bottle poured into a snifter at recommended serving temp.

A: Pours jet black with very little to no head, but a cappuccino colored lacing. No noticeable carbonation, and just a slight lacing on the glass.

S: Exactly as advertised. Chocolate is very forward on the nose, with a slight caramel malt underneath. The chocolate is so prevalent on the nose, that you have to really be diligent to try to find any other smells from this one.

T: Again, Chocolate is the initial taste when trying this one. A bit thinner then i expected. For some reason i thought this beer would be a bit thicker. Alcohol is very well hidden. No alcohol burn at all, and is an extremely easy beer to drink. They go down very easy. After the initial taste of chocolate, there is a slight caramel flavor that comes out. The only lingering taste is a slight chocolate/caramel flavor that is barely perceptible.

M: Way thinner than i expected. Not watery by any extent, but an extremely thin beer for the style.

O: This beer goes down very easy, and if you like chocolate, then you will probably really enjoy this beer. Some may find the chocolate a bit forward or overpowering, but you know what you are signing up for when you pick up this beer. I actually enjoyed this more then i expected to, and will definitely be trying this again in the future. One thing though is the pairing of the beer if you are drinking this with a meal. I would either drink this as an after dinner drink, maybe with ice cream or cake, but would not drink this with a lighter main course dinner. Bottom line: Very good!

4.73/5  rDev +11%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

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.
