look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12 oz bottle from Sonofalime, thanks! Poured into my CCB snifter. This bottle is from the winter 2010-11 release.

Appearance: About as black as a beer can be. Has a one fingered tan mocha head that settles after a few minutes. Alcohol legs creep up after a short swirl. Very inviting.

Smell: Dark malts with a dark dried raisin or prune sort of smell. I get a semisweet waft of cocoa.

Taste: Chocolate really picks up in the taste. A kind of bakers chocolate. The overall taste is not too sweet, with the alcohol very well hidden. A bit of bitter ash and tar/char mixed in as well, but not a bad thing. The finish is very long.

Mouthfeel: Silky solid body with tight but mellow carbonation.

Overall: Very nice stout. Again, I say this too often here, I wish I could get this one here in Utah.

This is what you're looking for if you are looking for a beer of this type. Greatly appreciated but only lasted for so long. Getting at least two cases at my local Specs. Great price, case price is around $7/ 4pk. Can't tell it is 10% ABV, hardly in the taste. Smell isn't strong like a coffee so it isn't noticeable from a distance. Drank two of the my first time and forgot it was like for other beers! Same thing goes with the much less-drinkable Blaecorn Unidragon from Clown Shoes. Highly recommended since I just discovered it in early January 2014, now it is indeed my favorite beer to date. Sucks it is only seasonal.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

$ 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.
