4.05/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours dark brown with a bit of foam around the edge of the glass. Leaves a few bubbles of lacing as I drink.

The smell is superb - deep rich chocolate and ripe dark fruit intermingle with sugary molasses and caramel. Vanilla too. Not much detectable alcohol here, unlike in the taste.

The taste doesn't bring quite as much to the table as the smell. The rich chocolate is somewhat subdued here compared to the smell, but it's still there. Same story for the wonderful fruit found in the aroma. Also the alcohol is a bit strong in this bottle. I've found some slight bottle to bottle variability among the same six pack, with this bottle being about in the middle in terms of quality, so this is what I'll go by. The taste adds a mild roasted quality which rounds things out nicely. A minute amount of hop bitterness is detected in the finish, plenty enough along with the roasted character to make sure this doesn't turn into a sugar bomb.

The mouthfeel is thin for the style, not quite as mouth coating as I would prefer. Overall I liked it, but would take Rogue Chocoate Stout over this any day.
