look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

DOB 05/13/2011 printed on bottom of the bottle in yellow ink. 22oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours a deep, dark brown with orangish brown hues at the edge of the glass. The head is almost non-existent, even with a strong pour. The slightest ring of tan foam shows up around the glass but it's paper thin and disappears pretty quickly. A few tiny wisps of lacing stick to the glass at first but that doesn't last either.

Sweet milk chocolate is extremely dominant and by far the most prominent aroma in the nose. There may be a bit of roast at first when the beer is chilled but as it warms the aromas is exclusively sweet milk chocolate. It can be almost sugary sweet at times, smelling of sticky chocolate syrup.

The taste follows along with the nose. I get almost zero coffee, maybe a bit on the back end but, again, it's pretty much all chocolate. It's very sweet, not cloying, but very sweet. There is a touch of bitterness at the finish, perhaps from some roasted malt.

The beer feels a bit thicker than it looked when it was poured but a not as thick as it should considering the amount of sweet, sticky chocolate in the taste. The smell gives the impression that it would be syrupy but it really isn't. The carbonation is just a bit higher for a stout this big so perhaps that helps.

Overall this is an ok beer. The sweetness isn't overwhelming but it does become a bit much over time. No real coffee flavor as the bottle says but plenty of the chocolate. This beer would benefit from a nice coffee flavor to balance out the sweetness.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 2

A: Pitch black pour with a nicely sized light brown head. Retention and lacing are both pretty good.

S: It blows my mind how much chocolate is in the smell. It's almost too much. Very sweet, not a lot of coffee.

T: I was expecting more balance here. But the thick, creamy, rich chocolate really over powers anything elthat tries to rear its
head.

MF: Very thick. Carbonation is low. No hint of alcohol.

O: Sort of a disappointment honestly. Wanted a bigger more balanced flavor. Probably wouldn't get it again.

Serving type: on-tap
