Appearance - Pours thick and black with a cocoa powder colored head that sits at about a finger's width. Good retention, resulting in a thin layer of suds across the top that thicken around the edges. Small, spotty lacing with fair stick.
Smell - As expected, lots of coffee and chocolate character in the aroma. Strong earthiness as well. Fair vanilla wafts with touches of coconut.
Taste - Big chocolatey notes upfront, hitting mostly on milk chocolate, but is backed by some fudge and baker's chocolate bitterness. Coffee grounds hit mid-taste and near the finish. Vanilla essence hangs well beneath, but comes through in the aftertaste, along with a strengthening fudge character and light coffee bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Full-bodied with low carbonation. Lightly prickly. Chewy, with some syrupy stickiness.
Overall - This is good. Really frickin' good. Not quite up there with Rogue's Double Chocolate Stout, but it does well to scratch that same itch. Fair balance, though leans toward the sweeter side. Don't know that I'd trade for it again, but would certainly buy it if it ever gets California distribution.

Pitch black pour with a brown one-finger head. Really great chocolate and marshmallow aroma. Initial taste has a really strong dark chocolate and cocoa flavor that is big and bold. Full body that drinks relatively easy. Coffee flavor is very subdued and there’s just a slight bitterness around mid taste. Finishes sweet with a really nice lingering chocolate flavor…almost list a good chocolate ice cream.
