Thanks for grabbing this one for me Blake, Ive been looking forward to it.
Classy looking bottle dated Winter 04-05. A really nice black pour, not even direct light penetrates. I get a nice sticky head composed of small bubbles with some big bubbles coming through the middle creating that oatmeal like look. The smell is nice, I pick up berries, dark chocolate, plum, roasty and scorched smells and a rum like alcohol aroma tickles my nostrils. This beer tastes even better then it smells. Again I pick up on the dark fruit flavors, espresso , charred malt, the alcohol character is definitely there its more vinous then I first detected in the smell though. I dont want to forget about the namesake chocolate, to me I pick it up more as dry, dark cocoa powder delicious. Bitterness clings to my lips which is another thing I love about a big stout. The alcohol comes out a lot more once its warm. The mouthfeel aint bad, but when it comes to big stouts I say the thicker the better and this one falls a little short of the very best big stouts Ive had. An awesome beer, I really wish I had more than six of them
