oversized wine glass
A- Very dark deep chocolate brown, near black. 1 finger high mocha colored head that faded to a mocha ring after 3-4 minutes.
S- Chocolates, Hersheys syrup, espresso, no alcohol that is noticeable- smells tremendous.
T- Has a dark but sweet chocolate up front, with hints of espresso in the middle and finish. Pretty tasty imo.
M- Medium body that is a touch watery, was expecting something much heavier and full. You can fell the body, but it turns watery quite quick.
O- Ive only had a few chocolate stouts, but this one so far was the best. It was in a bottle dated 10-12 and this is 10-13, maybe the extra ageing added to the balance and flavor, because I did not notice any bite or alcohol burn, and It had quite a chocolate character. Quite good and will be going back to see if I can snatch up some more of the "12" year. Excellent desert beer.
