Poured a thick, ebony body with a dark tan head that dissipated rather quickly (even with a vigorous pour). Small bits of lace we sparsely scattered around the glass.
The aroma was all malt with espresso and chocolate, but not as chocolate as I expected.
The taste was amazing, a little un-sweetened chocolate chip flavor up front. This gave way to bitterness like coffee beans and dark roasted malt. Can still taste the chocolate hare, but this beer never got sweet like I may have expected it to. Finishes crisp and dry with a little hoppiness that made this damn near perfect.
Great chewy mouth feel and dense body. The alcohol warms a bit, but is not overpowering.
This chocolate stout is a little more drinkable than I expected it to be. Well done.
