Had this at Alto Cinco in Syracuse, NY in 2007, but took notes. It was a decent looking RIS, pitch black with brown head, and the aromas of chocolate and coffee were a bit enticing. However, the taste and smell suffered a lot, it was WAAAYYY too rich and tasted like a chocolate cake that fell short, mouthfeel is just way too heavy and this beer is unthinkable and undrinkable.

I wanted to rate this lower, but just couldn't bring myself to do it. Not at all the beer I remember from years past and certainly not a Black Chocolate Stout. Pours pitch black with a brownish rim and absolutely no head. Had to really concentrate to get any aroma at all, and I still can't place what it is. Finally, this beer has a metallic taste; like I was drinking nickels or something. I'm curious to try it again, because this is a beer I used to like, say four-to-five years ago; but I was completely unimpressed this time.

A - very dark, short but lasting foam.

S - very mild and not impressive.

T - chocolate and that is about it. Good, but like the smell, not impressive. It isn't bad, but it simply isn't as good as one would want.

M - rather tingly as if highly carbonated.

D - so so... I will pass in the future.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Pours black in color with a 1 finger coffee brown head with ok retention

The scent is of dark chocolate with dark fruit.

The taste was incredibly sour at first, bad batch? After the sourness passed I tasted some dark chocolate and notes of coffee, the high alcohol was hardly noticeable.

Full bodied, smooth and creamy, low carbonation.

This was not a very good beer due to the incredible sourness, I probably had a bad batch, if I see this somewhere else I will have to retry.

Serving type: on-tap
