Had this beer late night on a sunday to get some strenght for the coming week. The label and the shape of the bottle really screams sweet promises of decadent stout. Poured the beer in a pint glass with a widget which keeps the head a bit longer with the constant streams of bubbles.

Small 1/2'' tanny head that doesn't stay very long. Color is deep black with the color taking more of a very dark brown when held up to a light. Seems pretty clear and opaque. First smell reveals a nice balance of smoked malts with some bittersweet chocolate mixed in. I get a faint nutty sweetness on the end.

It' got a good thickness. I might have liked a bit more but thats my taste. It does leave your mouth quite coated in stout goodness.

Now for taste, I get the smoked taste up front with the mid sweet chocolate following closely. I must admit that the first sip left me wanting for a bit more. I get a slight peppery end from time to time which is not so bad. A tiny trace of hops that rounds out the sweetness and add a bitter bark. Aftertaste is slight coffee with the chocolate coming back.

The chocolate caracter of this beer really intensify the warmer the beer gets so I would let it sit for a while if your just pulling it out from the fridge. I also found that the more you drink it, the more the chocolate creeps up on you. Really nice. It does deserve the name Double Chocolate.

Had some Bobbas Bounty loaded in a Kayfun while having this beer. It brought out some nice graham crackers and even chocolate.

Overall a good decadent stout thats well worth the reputation. Get one!
