3.78/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Tried a pint of this one over @ Blokes and Birds in Chicago.

Appearance - The place was a little dark where I was at, but when I held the glass up to a candle, there was no light coming through. Solid dark brown maybe even black. Slightly less than half a finger of dense creamy head on top, leaving spotting lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell - Dark chocolate and a hint of alcohol. Pretty straight forward

Taste- Mostly dark chocolate up front & slight caramelized malt flavor. Not as sweet as I expected, since the beer and logo for the beer reminds me of something from Willy Wonka's Chocolate factory. A faint flavor of alcohol is present (as suggested by the smell) as well, but isn't a bad thing (it is beer after all). The whole flavor experience in the mouth is a surprisingly short, clean one. None of that lingering roasted flavor that is sometimes present in some stouts.

Mouth feel - Extremely smooth and creamy. This stout certainly shines in this department. The low level of carbonation and creaminess of the beer make it feel somewhat viscous in the mouth. Lovely.

Drink-ability - Pretty agreeable beer to drink. Pretty filling as well, could only drink one pint of this, or less. The alcohol flavor in there, too, may have reduced the drink ability for me, personally. Not exactly refreshing either.

Overall - I'd give it a B+ or A- because it's pleasant to have tried this, but stouts are not my most favorite style of beer, but it seems to be of high quality and thoughtfully made.
