4.7/5  rDev +16.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Dark stout as expected. Thin cream colored head, leaves behind traces after it disappears.

S - Malty sweet with strong notes of vanilla and chocolate with a slight citrusy yeast smell.

T - Tastes sweet with strong notes of chocolate, almost just like the Hershey's chocolate syrup. Lesser notes of caramel and a vanilla finish. No real bitterness to speak of from hops, most comes from the dark malt. It is a dessert beer in my opinion, so the fact that there isn’t a bitterness to balance it out is fine by me.

M - The beer feels thick upfront but feels lighter after the initial sip. The beer was perfectly carbonated. It feels very creamy, like a nitro, even though it is from a bottle with no nitro gizmo.

O - I would have this beer again, great for after dinner or even with dinner. One of the best chocolate stouts that I have had, most others seem to have a cocoa powder taste while this actually tastes like chocolatey like Hershey's syrup.

UPDATE 8/27/11: I would not suggest the nitro-can. It some how mutes the flavor of the beer to a point where it is like a watery stout. I hoped it to make the beer even more creamy, however it made the beer lackluster.
