A - Bottle was 750 mL corked. Elegant metal cover on the cork and pretty lettering for 10th anniversary bottle. Sadly, he best part of this beer by far. Poured into a snifter, had black body with nice 1.5 finger mocha head. Head faded way too quickly for a stout of this nature.
S - Roasted malt, bready/yeast, and a slight hint of cocoa powder. Not overwhelming.
T - When it tastes better cold, you know it's a bad sign. The foamy head helped, but once it faded this was waaay too bitter from the cocoa power yet not nearly chocolately or sweet enough to live up to indulgence title.
M - Oily and not too thick for a stout, a bit watery also. very unimpressive.
D - Cannot simply be enjoyed on its own. Too bitter from cocoa powder to be tolerated without some strong cheese on crackers. Will not purchase again.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Undated bottle at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma of chocolate
Head large (7 cm), light brown, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing good – reticulum covering most of glass, bubbles varying in size
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor begins with chocolate and slight alcohol flavor; no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation
This is an excellent chocolate stout, of which I usually keep a couple bottles around. The appearance is very appealing – large, creamy head and good lacing atop a deliciously dark brew, topped by the alluring aroma of chocolate. The flavor is chocolaty and delicious, with only the slight taste of alcohol detracting from the pleasure. Overall, a very exquisite brew.
