Served in a bottle at a local bar. Consumed out of a chalice. I've been waiting for months to finally get a hold of one of these, and tonight my wish came true!
Appearance - Poured a deep and rich earthy darkness. Thick and foamy mocha colored head that was about an inch and a half thick. Remained strong for the duration of the consumption of this fine beverage.
Smell - Instantly picked up on the rich coffee and chocolate scents, along with nice dark roasted malts. The coffee smell however, pretty much overpowers all the other smells after it has been sitting for a few brief moments.
Taste - Tastes very chocolatey, almost like a carbonated chocolate coffee, with touches of malt, a very small touch of hops, and some rich dark fruity undertones.
Mouthfeel - Feels thick and creamy, just the way a proper stout should. Some excessive carbonation, but it dies down as the beverage sits.
Drinkability - Despite being 10% ABV, it goes down very smooth. The sweet tastes definitely mask the decent ABV. However, because of it's limited availability and sometimes steep price range (depending where you go), multiple drinks may be out of the question, but if you have the opportunity to drink this one, don't pass it up!

Had this poured into a stout glass. After a few sips I decided this was my favorite beer I've tried to date from Brooklyn. Dark chocolate color to match both the flavor and the aroma. Generous tannish-brown head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee beans. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel and medium body for a stout. Obvious chocolate flavor, great winter after dinner beer.
