Pours a dark brown color with a slight off white head. Plenty of lace is left on the glass. Aroma of dark malts, coffee, dark bread, char. In the taste, cocoa and malt, agreeable flavor, but certainly not overly chocolatey. Mild earthy hops that bitter the beer nicely and add a slight acidity that pairs well with the chocolate. Light to medium bodied brew with a solid carbonation and cocoa in the finish. Overall, a nice, well rounded chocolate stout that is not overdone. Not extreme, but extremely drinkable.

How I miss the glory days of Yard's Love Stout (the first oyster stout) I had ever consumed, it was delicious. Today's standard version is more of a dry Irish, and rather boring stout I'm happy to see a new variation.

Pours a decadent dark black it absolutely absorbs all light, khaki tan head rises above the rim of the chalice. Creamy textured head speckled uneven lacing.

Aroma has milky dark chocolate notes, hints of vanilla beans. Very mellow dark roasted malts the chocolate comes off as powdered chocolate/cocoa.

Surprisingly light in flavor, creamy dark chocolate, roasted malts, hint of vanilla. Flavors are fine but for a big bottled 750 ml release from Yard's I would expect a bit more body and texture and full on flavor. This is just a bit thin, in flavor and body.

Mouthfeel I mentioned a big lighter than I was expecting, medium bodied even carbonation for a big stout in a big bottle it just comes off thin.

Overall, not worth 8.99 a bottle, enjoyable drinking stout but nothing more nothing less.
