Pours a opaque deepest brown/black with a short-lived light tan head. Aromas are faintly of chocolate, black patent and chocolate malts and a slight tinge of low-alpha hops. Not extremely impressed with the aroma but it's not off-putting. It goes downhill from here, as after first sip I can only think of the wierd smokiness that is totally out of place. I did initially sense a bit of chocolate, coffee and roasted malts, but it's completely gone with subsequent sips due to the overwhelming smokiness. This would work well for a smoked stout or even porter. Mouthfeel is medium to thinner bodied with a carbonation level that might be slightly higher than it needs to be. The smoky flavor does not entirely turn me off to this beer, but it seems horribly out-of-place when the label says that what I'm consuming is supposed to be a chocolate stout. I've never tasted smokiness in any chocolate I've ever tasted... I seroiusly doubt I'd ever try this one again.
