The bottle poured out a dark brown to jet black color with a 1 1/2 finger high light brown head. The head dissipated to a thin and sticky lace, just covering the top of the beer. The initial aromas were of light tobacco, sweet malts, and some chocolate. The initial flavors were of pipe tobacco, sweet malts in the middle ground, aided by some dark chocolate. It finished with a light roast that sat pleasantly on the palate. Overall it had a light to medium body with light to medium carbonation.
This was a pretty good beer. With a name like Double Chocolate, you would expect this to be a chocolate explosion, but it is not. There is a hefty amount of sweet pipe tobacco going on and it is the primary flavor of the beer. I don't think this is a beer that I'll frequent, maybe something on the odd occasion.
