Split between two snifters from a 22 oz bottle

Color is black, nearly opaque. Thin tan head with minimal retention. Some lacing . Smell is chocolate fudge. It really dominates the aroma, drowning any competing smells. Taste is similar - chocolate fudge, finished with bittersweet chocolate. The bitter finish helps to balance this sweet beer.

I liked the look, lace, head, body and aroma; however, while the initial taste was a subtlety sweet taste, which I enjoyed, it had a sort of less-than-satisfying aftertaste. Still a quality stout.

22oz bomber poured into nonic. Shared with friends over a game of Cities and Knights. Silky thick pour yields a thin tan head that quickly fades to nothing. Very dark brown with lighter edges. Unsurprisingly, the aroma is dominated by chocolate both sweet and dark. There’s also some malt, vanilla, and leafy hop aromas. The taste is again dominated by chocolate: milk chocolate sweetness, some bitter bakers chocolate, cocoa powder, and fudge. An enjoyable earthy leaf bitterness cuts through and marries up to vanilla, roasted malt, and espresso. Medium body, thick velvety slick texture, low to moderate carbonation (more than the appearance indicates), slightly drying on the finish with a bit of alcohol burn.

I LOVED this stout!! We look at beer review guidelines/facts and base our reviews along those categories which is essential for accurate beer reviews... but in essence the most important category is ones personal preference. This beer is perfect for me.

Appearance - Very dark brew, with ruby red tint when held to light.

Smell - Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate

Taste - Powerful chocolate flavor upfront. Some coffee bitterness. Very sweet beer.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, low carbonation. Very silky, creamy.

Overall - Perfectly flavorful, very enjoyable sweet stout!! DO GIVE THIS A TRY
