5/5 rDev +52.9%
Appearance- pours a deep dark brown, nearly opaque black, with a tan frothy expresso like head, two fingered in height.
Smell-not surprised but chocolate! Lots of it, hint of bitterness aroma from the hopes.
Taste/mouthful- nice and smooth great body lives up to the stout style, almost creamy in texture, bitter sweet chocolate malt, hopped perfectly, just a hint of tanginess from the hops but sits back to let the chocolate take the fore front of the flavor. For 2.99 I was a sceptic, you could charge way more. Must try, would par Nicely with any desert.

Poured from a pint bottle into a pint glass. Pours a medium to dark brown with three fingers of a foamy khaki head. Smells of malt, hints of metal, and a corny lager smell overall not too appealing on the nose. It tastes of malt, hints of roast or smokiness, with a strong chocolate finishing taste, medium carbonation. Medium bodied with a crispy carbonation feel. Overall it's nothing exceptional and the best thing it has going for it is it's appearance

Poured into my frozen beer mug. The one thing this brew has going for it is the appearance - rich creamy brown foam with small to medium lacing. So dark when I held it up to the afternoon sun you STILL can't see through it. However, this one proves the saying 'you get what you pay for'. Yes, it is definitely a stout. It just lacks depth and has a certain watery body to it. Couldn't taste any chocolate, personally. A bit of creaminess with a slightly hoppy aftertaste. It's drinkable, but I won't be looking out for this one next time I'm in the store.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Guinness glass.
Appearance: Opaque black, modest light brown head.
Smell: The bottle smells kind of like an oatmeal stout with some cocoa. The glass seems to bring out some citrusy hops, as well. Bittersweet malt underneath. Smells like it's got more of a "brown" than "black" flavor profile.
Taste: The hints of cocoa powder are in there. The body of the beer is fairly weak -- keeps with the "brown" rather than "black" profile, kinda like a traditional porter. Underwhelming and kinda boring. A bit of hop acid around the edges.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full. Standard carb. Sugary.
Overall: Nothing special. Much cheaper than a chocolate stout from Rogue, but not nearly as enjoyable.

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.
