Initially chocolate aroma. The taste is a mediocre stout with some chocolate that gets drier and bitter (not from hops). Not very drinkable, though quaffable. Black with some white head. average mouthfeel, and average beer.Not sweet is the best part, but also not that well balanced, chocolate "sells".

Pours like a typical stout. The smell is really weird. It doesn't have too much of a roasted smell, but more of a higher roasted burnt astringent malt. The taste has a god amount of chocolate though it really went well with my rice krispy treats I was eating. Not too highly roasted in the taste but enough to be "stouty." Overall not a bad chocolate beer. If it were a bit more pleasant smelling then it would round out the experience more.

A- Dark brown with a small light brown head

S- Sweet chocolate and some coffee bitterness

T- Sweet chocolate again, and some roasted coffee, it really follows the nose

M- Medium bodied, good carb, smooth

D- On the sweeter side of the balance and that's not really to my taste but it's certainly not a bad brew
