2012-13 12 oz bottle served in a snifter at about 55F.
A good looking stout with an opaque, brown-tinged, black body topped by a well-proportioned, partially durable, mocha tan head. Lacing blankets the glass with every tip. Traces of sediment in the bottle after the pour.

Aroma: Notably hoppy, with more hop aroma than dark malts. Spicy with a hints of citrus and pepper.

Taste: The hops added a nice spicy tone to the rich dark-roasted malts that dominate the flavor. Hints of vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Has a touch of Rogue-ish earthiness and a touch of tartness. Slightly more bitter than sweet.

Feel: Medium+ and "chewy" body with well-chosen, soft, medium carbonation.

O: A fine, hoppy American style stout; very flavorful without being at all challenging to drink.

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.

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.

Went to my favorite Beer and Wine shop, Hop City Beer and Wine and got a this offering in a growler. Poured a two finger head, very dark almost black and has very good lacing. The nose begins with a sweet malty yet hoppy aroma. The taste kinda puts me in the mind of a Black IPA as the hops are somewhat prominent, which I like, but then the chocolate malts come through which are in the stout vein. It's a light mouthfee which I would be better in my opinion medium. Overall I'm really enjoying this one and will have again.
