Look: Pours pitch black into a snifter, with a one finger caramel head which fades very quickly.

Smell: Alcohol is present. The chocolate aroma almost has a hint of mint.

Taste: Very RISish. Has a hint of sweet milk chocolate taste upfront which fades to a dark, bitter chocolate flavor at the end. Alcohol again is present.

Feel: Fell bodied, as stout should be.

Overall: I'm not feeling very creative for this portion right now. Busy drinking.

This brew pours a solid black with a fluffy two finger mocha head which dissipates fairly quickly however some of it remains as a collar until the end; moderate lacing.

The smell is chocolate, (duh), burnt and sweet malts, coffee and some dried fruits.

The taste follows the nose; the chocolate hits first, followed by the burnt malt, then coffee, then sweet malt then finishing with chocolate. The chocolate is present in the taste from beginning to end. It goes down creamy smooth; sweet but there are just enough hops present on the back end to prevent it from being too sweet. There is also a warming effect, maybe just a little alcohol taste is leaking through; I can't tell for sure.

Overall, it is chocolate and a Stout, try it with your favorite cheese.

Poured into a pint glass at a local taproom. S/Roasted Malts, chocolate, slight hints of vanilla, a little nutty, and maybe a little vanilla. T/It was the thickness that I expected of such a stout. I tasted the roasted malts and chocolate on the first sip. It was very bitter, but the bitterness subsided as it warmed and that is when the flavor really started to shine revealing small hints of vanilla with the roasted chocolate. O/I would definitely seek this out again. It was well worth the purchase.
