Appearance: Liquified fizzy chocolate! Deep brown with a dark massive head.
Smell: Chocolate malts, but it's not an overly strong aroma.
Taste: The wide range of chocolate taste in this beer is impressive. It starts off with the sweeter milk chocolate then shifts into the more bitter dark chocolate on the finish. This leaves a pleasant slightly bitter aftertaste. The taste is very authentic; you can tell the chocolate flavor comes largely from the malt itself.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and rich, just what the doctor ordered for this style.
Drinkability: This beer could have ended up too sweet to be very drinkable, but that's not the case. It's an easy-drinking milk stout.
Notes: A superb beer because of it's chocolate qualities, but also a great beer simply for its genuine and well-done stout characteristics. It's a fine dessert beer, to be sure, but don't relegate it to that purpose alone. Think of it too when you just want a good stout, chocolate or not.
