22oz bomber into a stemless wine glass.
A: Good Lord, it's like motor oil with latte foam. When poured slowly and from a decent height one can elicit a thick, long lasting chocolate milk brown foam, but it still disappears rather fast, I'm assuming from being 10%abv.
S: Of course there's huge amounts of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, semisweet chocolate, 70% cacao and darker chocolates with burnt toasty notes, a hit of sweet, creamy vanilla, a touch of nondescript spice, a smidge of alcohol and roasted malts. But what blows me away is the very distinct smells of chocolate covered banana and dark chocolate covered jelly rings. WOW.
T: Every type of previously listed chocolate assaults the palate, followed by a big bittersweet smack of super dark chocolate and earthy hoppiness. This turns into an unsweetened cocoa flavor that fades into warming booziness that tickles the tongue with spice. Fantastic, not overburdeningly sweet. I want to bourbon barrel or rum barrel age this.
M: Very full and viscous, bordering on chewy, which turns into a drying cocoa powdery feel across the tongue, and a nice little zing from the booze and carbonation.
O: Quite possibly one of the finest chocolate stouts I've ever had, every one after this has a very high bar to reach.

This beer pour dark brown, with an off white/beige head. There wasn't much action going on around the glass during the tilt appearance test. The smell is definitely of chocolate and lactose. Bitter and sweet aromas waft off the top as I sniff. Taste is definitely chocolatey and rich. The bitter and sweet contest is fairly balance, however, it is a tad bit more bitter than chocolate. There are hops in this one. Mouthfeel wasn't something that stood out for me. This is a bit thin. Thicken it up a little and it would be better.
Overall, this is an outstanding beer. Tonight I had this with rhubarb/strawberry pie. It would be fantastic with vanilla ice cream and chocolate cake. I will have this again in the future.
