look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Single bottle (1pt, 0.9oz) poured into a tumbler with a best by date of 10/31/09. When poured I got a light brown head with very fine bubbles that died down a bit, but still covered the top of the beer as I drank it down. Lots of lacing on the sides of the glass. The beer itself is black - opaque in the glass but you can make out a shade of brown that a tiny bit of light will get through.

Smell is quite nice. When cold you don't get much of anything, but as it warms up it begins to smell like a chocolate liqueur - creamy dark chocolate and alcohol.

Taste - that's the whole point of this beer isn't it? Bittersweet chocolate up front and a tad of coffee at the end when cold which becomes more cocoa in flavor at the front and less coffee at the end as it warms up. Nothing is overpowering in one direction or another - it's nicely balanced and not cloying or too bitter at any one point.

Mouthfeel - Thick and creamy like one would expect from a stout. Not Guinness thick, but nice. A very faint amount of carbonation on the tongue.

Drinkability - This is one to have with food. I had it with a burger and fries for an adult version of chocolate shake with the meal. And it did not disappoint. However, given the price of the beer this is one for special occasions, not a routine brew - despite it's high quality. So while I greatly enjoyed it I can't rate it highest on drinkability.
