12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau glass. Bottled on 9/10. Consumed on 10/23.
A - Black, somewhat viscous. Low carbonation. Moderate pour yielded less than a finger of a beige head which quickly dissipate. No heady lacing; small disparate splotchy foam left on sides of glass.
S - Mildly fragrant. Amaretto, dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and something tart. Not boozy.
T - Most dominate aspect was the tartness of flavor; not unpleasant, but not common for this style. Dark chocolate not as dominant as expected considering the name. Also some roasted coffee. Completely hides ABV which is notable considering 10% ABV. Tart chocolate lasting flavor.
M - Crisp and tingles tongue. Lightly bodied for a stout... probably too light.
O - It's good, but considering other high quality choices available, it's average amongst the ranks of high quality craft beers.

$ 2.49/12 oz bottle at Vintage Estates in Boardman, OH
Bottled winter 13-14 at cellar temp into snifter
Aroma of chocolate and alcohol
Head small (1.5 cm), medium brown, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring and broken layer
Lacing poor – occasional small island and atoll of small bubbles
Body dark brown/black, opaque
Flavor of bitter chocolate which ends with a whiff of alcohol; no malt, no hops, no diacetyl
Palate medium to full, creamy, carbonation soft
A very good chocolate stout which hides the 10% ABV well. This is one which definitely could sneak up on you. The rapidly disappearing head and scanty lacing detract from the appearance.
