Poured from 2 year old aged bottle
A-motor oil black with a thin sandy brown colored head.
S-Smoky and burnt like a dark roasted coffee and rich chocolate
T-Coffee-like bitterness with sweet malts. I expected more chocolate flavor from this beer on par with the Smuttynose Robust Porter, which I think is the most Chocolately beer I've had. I think the labeling of this beer affected what I anticipated from the taste of the beer. However, the beer tasted perfectly inline with the style, bitter malt, not too sweet--in balance. I just wish there was more chocolate flavor...
M-Creamy and smooth. The viscosity perfectly coats the tongue and travels down the effortlessly
D-High abv, bitterness and malt sweetness made it difficult for me to finish the entire 12oz bottle. Not sessionable for me, I did not wish to have another after finishing this one.

$ 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.
