bottle poured in a 16oz glass

Appearance: Pours syrupy; looks dark black with a thick brownish head. I cannot see through the glass.

Smell: an explosion of Chocolate blended with dark roasted malt. It is very sweet to the nose.

Taste: sugary chocolate, sweet dark roasted malt, with a hint of alcohol. Tastes reminds me of an alcohol chocolate milk type beer.

Mouthfeel: syrupy, thick bodied with little carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall, This is a great RIS. Probably one of my favorite stouts right behind Stone's RIS. The name of this stout truly describes the taste. It is a sweet chocolate explosion in my palate and it is very well balanced with the alcohol and the malt flavors.

This is not only one of my all-time favorite chocolate beers, it's one of my favorite stouts. It's chocolate done right in my opinion, toning down the bitterness that's usually found in stouts, making it incredibly smooth and easy to drink. I recommend aging it for at least a year, as the flavor really blooms and the alcohol mellows out.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into an over-sized wine glass.

A: Very dark, essentially black. Opaque with a thin tan head and no visible carbonation.

S: Dark chocolate, cacao, lactose creamy sweetness, and hints of vanilla.

T: Big chocolate flavors (dark and semi-sweet), sweet lactose, hints of coffee flavor from the roasted malt. Roasted bitterness with some chocolatey sweetness into the hang.

M: Thick sticky mouthfeel, heavy body, alcohol noticeable but it doesn't seem "hot". Low carbonation sensation.

O: It delivers what it promises - a big chocolate imperial stout. Plenty of lactose used makes it seems almost like chocolate milk. It is tasty, but maybe the sweetness is little over the top after more than just a glass. A good dessert beer.
