2.58/5  rDev -36%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Wow... I must say I'm quite amazed at the formation of the head on this thing. I could watch that all day. After it settles it leaves a 1/2in white creamy head. Looks kind of like ice cream The body of the beer is black with some ruby highlights. The only thing keeping me from giving this a five is the fact that it really dosn't look like beer, more like a milkshake or something.

S: Smells good, very chocolatey, but dosn't really smell like a beer. Smells more like Nesquick. There is a hint of alcohol to the nose.

T: I was glad that it didn't taste as chocolatey as it smelled. I was actually especting this to be stronger than it was. Slighty bitter with a sweet roasted malts and chocolate dominating. Has a bitter coffee like aftertaste. Chocolate tastes pretty artificial. Reminds me of Guinness mixed with Nesquick.

M: Completly flat and kind of watery. This is killing it for me.

D: Watching the head form on this is definiatly it's strongest point . Taste-wise it was a decent stout, but I really can't stand how flat and watery it was. If it had at least some carbonation, and maybe a fuller body I would like it a lot more.

Serving type: nitro-can
