Black with frothy tan head. Smells malt heavy. Carbonation sustains the weight and body of its chocolatey heaviness.
Alcohol note on top of a rich, deep, bittersweet chocolate flavor. Slight creaminess melds with dark, sweet malt note. Bitterness from the hops contributes nicely to the overall composition. Smooth and boozey.
A wonderful winter ale - a wonderful nightcap.
Serving type: on-tap

$ 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.
