The beer pours a foamy brown head that takes a while to dissipate. The beer itself is an opaque and very dark brown color. The beer smell is a sweet dark chocolate with deeply roasted malts and cocoa. The beer taste is surprisingly different from the smell. The beer taste has a much stronger hop presence with a weaker Mexican dark chocolate and cocoa taste. The hop bitterness and chocolate mix rather well. The beer is heavy bodied, creamy, and thick. Overall, a pretty good stout and worth getting.
