2.9/5 rDev -28%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Very dark, not completely black. Creamy brown head, dissipates very quickly. Some lacing on the side of the glass.
Nose: I mainly get hops in the nose, which is surprising. Some chocolate notes and a boozy smell too.
Taste: Sweet chocolate - like the chocolate easter bunnies. Not too much hoppyness in the taste as the smell indicated. A little coffee taste, but mostly chocolate.
Mouthfeel: It's pretty thick, but not too much. Very little carbonation - I think it could have used a bit more.
Drinkability: Pretty good, this never struck me as very heavy. I don't know what the ABV is, but it seems pretty low.
Overall: I thought this was decent. I may have served it too warm, but there didn't seem to be a very strong body to this one. Chocolate came through the most, but it lacked bitterness. On the other hand, it seems to be a more refreshing type stout. Not too heavy, but not a lot too it.
Serving type: bottle
