Live Review #2. Still from Timmy O'Tooles on Ontario and Fairbanks in Chicago, IL.
APPEARANCE: Deep black with a very thin off-white head resting on top. Interesting lacing, a ring around the top was left where the initial head was and then very little remained stuck to the glass below that.
SMELL: Smells very smoky with a hint of coffee. Surprisingly, I don't smell much chocolate.
TASTE: The smokiness is almost non-existant in the taste - just a hint. The chocolate, however, does arrive with the first sip and is the highlight of this beer, although it is a bitter, dark chocolate-like flavor. A smoky flavor returns with for the aftertaste, which seems to be much more full and complex than the actual taste.
FEEL: Smooth and mouthcoating like a good stout should be. Warms as it goes down, there is certainly some alcohal in the Chocolate Stout.
OVERALL: A very nice, easy to drink stout. I tend to like a little smoke flavor in my stouts, but not to have it overpower the beer, and this one delivered on that front. I don't often drink stouts, but when I do, I will consider this one again.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle with a jet black color and a very small, quickly dissipating tan head. Smells of chocolate, malts, and oaky bourbon. Taste is sweet dark chocolate, fruits, malts, and some bourbon. Has a full body feel and goes down smooth. This is an amazingly delicious beer.

330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Pure black color headed by creamy foam. Brownish tan is lasting & leaves lacing on sides. Roasted malt & cocoa aromas with herbal hues. Bitter cocoa, hints of toffee & lavender at first sip. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous texture & subtle spicy to the palate. Bitterness grows up in the middle & lingers, attached to herbal infusion & creamy roasted maltiness, into the finish. Bitter cocoa on the aftertaste. ABV has been well camouflaged. Flavorful & nice drinkable!!
