A. Average poor 2 inches of thick tan head. Good carbonation. Color is same as a cola.
S. Stout, artificial chocolate flavor. I’m already not liking this beer.
T. Like a stout with artificial chocolate flavor, mild coffee, alcohol.
M. Watery, little syrup.
O. Not very good especially for the price of $12 a 4 pack. Good buzz for 5.2%.

A very solid chocolate stout. A bit thin on the mouthfeel but overall great and definitely worth a try.

Like a Guiness but thicker. Meaty was the first thought. Cocoa flavor but not sweet. Kind of flat mouthfeel. Expected it to be phenomenal per a friends recommendation. Not what expected. I was expecting the strength of a Founders Breakfast Stout but this it is not.

Simply waving a Hershey bar over a can of Guinness doesn't make it a "Double Chocolate Stout." The closest this comes to double anything is a double of Guinness, which I like. The poor rating is because it **pretends** to be something else. Do yourself and wallet a favor and just have a Guinness.
