This is one fine stout. Not my favorite but definitely top 5.
Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle, the color is pitch black. The head comes alive like a good stout should as it rises to a perfectly carmelicious pillow-topped goddess. The smell is immediately chocolatey, like a hershey bar blended with a guinness. The taste is pure chocolate heaven but it's not as overwhelming as you would think given the name. Mouthfeel is creamy and thick but ends in a tad bit of acoholic sharpness which goes almost unnoticable. I probably could sit down and drink this endlessly which is probably good that I purchased a single bottle.
If you're on a stout kick but don't want to dabble too much in the realm of chocolate, try Samuel Smiths Imperial Stout or Sam Adams Cream Stout.
