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
