A: Pours a super dark brown with a nice fluffy dark tan head. Very clean body. No bubbles. Some complexity in the colors of the head. And, pretty good preliminary lacing.
S: Nice roasty, toasty chocolatetyness --also some hops coming through. More than I smell in most stouts. Nothing too special, but nice -- test will be in the taste.
T: Some crazy roasted malts / toasted grain flavor in the finish. Slighty bitter too. Definitely taste like tobacco. Hoppy. I'm not getting as much chocolate as I had hoped. Not bad or anything, but I don't think it is what it says. I really gotta look hard for the chocolate.
M: Nice carbonation. I'd say a medium body. Creamy and smooth -- more creamy. Little bit of chewiness. Good, but nothing that screams great.
O: I highly doubt this is an infected bottle, but this is called a Black Chocolate Stout and it should be called Black Tobacco Stout. Honestly, this needs more chocolate. I thought I detected it in the smell, but I knew the taste will tell the whole story, and the end wasn't great. I'll have to try it again next year.
**Note -- could be dark chocolate and not tobacco flavor, but definitely putting me off.
