Poured out into a pint glass and was surprised not to see much of a head considering the style. it also didn't have much of an aroma to it. The aroma i did get was like sticking my nose in a fresh bag of toasted malt. Caramel flavor and a hint of dark chocolate are the flavor notes i get from this one. Hops are well balance and stay in the background to provide just a touch of bitterness. I like this beer and might have to pick it up again very soon.

Ugh. So not that long ago, I'm pounding Coors Light, Keystone, High Life, whatever. Then, ALL OF THE SUDDEN, the people I drink with decide we can do better and I'm drinking stouts, porters, imperial whatevers, double chocolate somethings, and who knows what. Now, I'm all like, "this chocolate stout is too thin. Waaa." Tell you what, if you like beer, but aren't a total snob about it, then this beer will do you fine. But if you obsess about "mouthfeel" and "lacing" and "who cares, Doug, let's just get wasted already!"....sorry that one doesn't apply....this beer will disappoint you. Not much body to it, kind of seems like they took a Heineken and threw a couple Hershey's Kisses in the wort. Ok, not a Heinie, that was mean, but you get my drift. Expected better, not thoroughly pissed about it.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is about a finger high, with a khaki shade. It's somewhat soft and creamy, but not impressively so. Retention isn't fantastic, either. A decent ring of lacing is left behind, which seems to fade away with time.

S: Well, there is some chocolate...just not a lot of it. I pick up a mild note of floral hops, too. There's also some roasted malt, and even more in the way of nuts and caramel. Closer to a brown ale than a stout (much less a porter), but really not bad at all. I kind of expected worse.

T: Just like the nose suggested - it feels like I'm drinking a brown ale. A mild wave of brown sugar and chocolate opens it up, transforming into a gently roasted dryness on the finish. Touches of floral hops appear at times. Since they didn't add actual chocolate (just chocolate malt), I can forgive the mildness of the chocolate flavor. There just isn't anything here to 'wow' me, though.

M: I like how dry and crisp it is. It just isn't very substantial feeling. I believe a great stout should dry AND luxurious feeling; frankly, this is a bit watery. Come to think about it, it's not even that dry, either - I'm feeling some residual sugar on the palate. Only when the semi-zesty carbonation fades does this really make it feel any richer.

O: Rather bland and unassuming. I knew this wouldn't be Choklat, but did it have to be this boring to drink? It's an okay gateway craft beer, though.

EDIT: It's becoming more watery as I drink it. Time to drop the scores some.
