3.21/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

From the 750 ml. bottle obtained from a Trader Joe's. Sampled on March 11, 2014.

The pour is very nice and dark brown to about black with a modest long lasting tan head. It looks the way a stout should.

They boast that it is brewed with cocoa powder as opposed to just cocoa and that is mainly what I get at first along with some dark malts and a slight buttery sensation. Low hop note.

The body is a little under medium.

I am picking up some chocolate malts and a slightly bitter hop bitterness at the end. But the beer really feels like someone sprinkled some Nestle cocoa mix into the beer. That cocoa powder they boast about on the label tends to become its downfall.

3.23/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

22 oz bottle, no apparent dating, poured in a tulip glass.

A - Dark black with brown highlights, a one finger tan head that moves to a thin lace.

S - Chocolate nibs (yep, said nibs), some dark fruit, coffee/nut notes, cocoa.

T - Some chocolate, cocoa, almond, and some unsettling smoke/ash on the finish, which ends up dominating the taste

M - Thin in the beginning, and it maintains its thinness as it warms. The carbonation level is moderate, trending to low.

O - Gave it a chance, but it wasn't happening. The chocolate fades fast, and you are left with smoke/ash.

1pint bottle

A- Black, no light comeing thru this one. 2 finger high head that is light coco in color, very creamy in appearance. Nice lacing up the sides as the head falls, there is visable lacing on the inside of the bottle, nice.

S- Malty, cocoa, bready, some slight sweetness from the bottle, more sweet coming from the glass.

T- Slightly sweet up front, then gets kinda...bland. Having a hard time tasting the malts and cocoa that is present from the bottle, slight metallic aftertaste.

M- Not quite medium, a soft slick feeling, its ok.

O- Looks good, smells decent from the bottle, not a fan of the flavor as it gets bunched up into nothing, was really hard for me to pick out the flavors that I smelled. Glad I did not pay much for this one, wont be getting it again.
