Pours a deep opaque black with a razor-thin head. No lacing. Smells of dark chocolate. Tastes very boozy. Smokey with some chocolate notes. Mouthfeel dominated by searing alcohol. Overall the flavor just gets completely overwhelmed by alcohol. Not terrible by any means but I wouldn't get this again.

Drank from a 12 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Downtown Wine & Spirits, Somerville, MA

Poured a transparent black (thick like motor oil) with a small frothy film of mocha-colored bubbles which quickly disappeared.

Smell was sweet and complex, yet not particularly pleasant. Deep, roasted malts, port wine and soy sauce came through strong along with notes of raisins, brown sugar and a distinct oakiness.

Taste was sharp and biting. Port was once again noticeable up front before the huge alcohol bite kicked in. As the alcohol subsided, notes of brown sugar, dried fruits, burnt malts and salty licorice became apparent. Some hoppiness was noticeable on the swallow, which continued into the finish. The aftertaste was a mix of potent hops and deep, roasted malts, with a noticeable alcohol warming in the throat.

Medium-heavy bodied with a frothy, pillowy mouthfeel. The amount of carbonation was quite excessive and stung my palate.

This is a harsh and rather difficult to drink beer (even for this style). Worst of all, I could not detect any hint of chocolate in this so-called "Black Chocolate Stout."
