This beer looked promising in the glass. Very dark black pour with a chocolate head that thinned out nicely. But as i went into smell it, all i smelled was beer. Dont get me wrong, the hoppy, malty beer smell is ok, but in a flavored beer, i need to smell the flavor along with the taste. Very nice mouthfeel, not watery, not too thick. Alas, the taste leaves something to be desired, for a chocolate beer. Still a great tasting beer, do not get me wrong, just not the chocolatey taste i was hoping for in a double chocolate stout. Now if it were a double stout chocolate, id get it. Too much of a bitter taste in the foreground for me, but the aftertaste does make up for it. There are other chocolates out there id buy first, but id take this one if it were there. And the price was much better than the 6 i paid for another chocolate.
