Poured into a boulevard tulip, I immediately realize this should have been poured into a snifter or pint glass
A- Dark brown/black body, no light allowed through. Not sure if it is the tulip or the beer but a massive light tan head sits on top of this beer that hangs around forever... 5 minutes and i still have 3 fingers of foam. 10 minutes, i finally can see beer 3
S Cocoa, malt, barley and hops. not to complex but pleasant 3
T I am immediately hit in the face with hops. As my palate recuperates from the immediate hop attack, i start to taste a nice, blend of cocoa, malt, a hint of coffee and bit of molasses. 3
M This is fairly thin and very dry. The carbonation, as indicated by the head is is very present. This definitely has the feel of a dry, irish stout. 2.5
O This beer is ok, not sure if it was intended to be a dry irish stout or a Russian Imperial that the OG was heavily missed on. I would not seek this out but if handed one or if stuck at an okie BMC party and were available, I would definitely take it. 3

12oz into a Choc tulip. Looks like I'm the first to review this outside of Oklahoma...
Pitch black and dense. A frothy head that dissipates into a visible ring around the edges, some lacing.
Big roast and earthy hops on the nose, with some baker's chocolate.
Big on the hops again on the tongue, with roast and baker's chocolate. A bit too much on the hops in fact which results in a bit of astringency.
Thin medium, with low carbonation.
A good, under the radar beer that could use a little less hopping in the boil in my opinion. But a good start for a solid American Stout.

Probably their best bottled beer. Pours black as night with a somewhat slight, though creamy, head. Creamy and light roasty notes in the nose with slight coffee and chocolate notes. More of the same in the taste, but with a nice smack of bitterness followed by the roasty and then creamy notes. Some nice dark chocolate throughout, but the overall impression is of something soft and creamy with a background of bitterness and chocolate- think of a pretty good cup of coffee- but with a lot of cream. That makes the whole package a little simpler than it might be, but it's still a pleasant beer and a change of pace.
