Pours black with a bubbly tan head. Sugary aroma of chocolate malt and cocoa. Medium in body, but seems a little thin for a stout. Flavor has chocolate malt and roasted barley on the front. Some smokiness emerges toward the back in addition to a hop bitterness that tries to balance out the chocolate flavors.
I tried this beer with a chocolate cake that had a raspberry filling. The cake was very sweet compared to this beer. The chocolate stout didn't hold up at all to the sweetness of the chocolate cake. The beer by itself, this might have been a different experience. I suppose this is a dessert beer, but don't try and pair it with anything TOO sweet or it will fail.
