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.

Thanks mom!! She Went on a business trip and she brought back a ton of beer for me and my wife.

A very dark brown but ot the blackest thing I've seen. Very nice one if ger head after vigorous pour. Beautiful lacing. Great looking.

S bitter chocolate, light sweetness, tiny coffee, dark malt

T very light beginning of sweet chocolate, the middle is a soft bitter hops and chocolate and the end is an earthy bitter chocolate and ever so light coffee.

M soft, sweet, smooth, lit carbonation.

O this is an excellent beer if it is an easy to find one. Good for a daily drinker. Don't know if it is super limited or expensive since it was a gift.

12oz bottle with no dating.

I like the pour - midnight black with a bulging two finger mocha tan head. Lace is a crazy thick blanket of stickiness - every sip leaves its mark and almost no holes. I noticed it was leaving lace in the bottle on the pour. Nice.

Not much coming at your nose from this. Roasted malts are not rising up from the depths here. I get some coffee notes, but more than anything I get hops and a little dark fruit.

Cold from the bottle does not do this beer justice, it only subdues. Upon warming, it wakes up from the dead - big dark roast coffee, bittersweet bakers chocolate, a vanilla flash followed by a hefty hop finish. Somewhat of an Irish taste here.

Medium chewy body with somewhat dry ending. Nice carb.

Choc is not known for big black stouts. This is not spectacular, but it's not a bad start. Good job, Choc.
