4.58/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

First off let me say that I don't love RIS's that taste like prunes, raisans, and all those dark fruit flavors that you usually get from big stouts. I saw the chocolate stout from Brooklyn (where no chocolate was used in the making and thought... hmmmm... maybe this is my thang!)

appearance - motor oil, no light shall get through. Tan head. three fingers dissipate and leave great sticky lacing.

smell - caramel, toffee, prune, and little bit of roast.

taste -starts out with a little bit of dark fruit. No hops to speak of, pretty sweet in the middle, and then finishes of with a blast of dark sweet chocolate. Very well balanced. Probably the most balance flavor profile I've had in a stout. I like that it finishes with the chocolate!

mouthfeel - carbonation is low-medium and perfect for this still for me. Not to thick or thin but a nice medium mouthfeel...makes it drinkable dispite the 10% alcohol which doesn't seem to assert itself until it warms to cellar temps.

overall - For my tastes, this is just right. The dark fruits are present, but not overpowering. The chocolate is at the end of the taste which hits you really nice. Solid beer, and the best one I've had from Brooklyn. Get's better and better as it warms and the alcohol becomes more assertive!
