A- Very dark brown pour, settles to an almost black color. Bubbly tan head leaves some lacing with a thin head.

S- Chocolate malt, cocoa, a hint of roasted malt, slight toasted nut aroma.

T- Chocolate malt, roasted malt, not a ton of cocoa or dark chocolate flavor. Really tastes more like a basic stout with a hint of chocolate and a lot of roastiness.

M- Medium-high carbonation, slight carbonation tingle, medium bodied, does not really coat the mouth.

O- A decent and drinkable stout, but not as much chocolate flavor as the name would indicate.

Poured a large head of soapy tan coloured head, showed pretty good retention, colour is a very dark brown edging on black. Leaves a pretty solid lacing and film.

Smell has a lot of bitter chocolate come through, with roasted malt, something of a beeswax candle note. Straw notes, and some woody barn/field aromas, all pretty nice.

Taste is a full bittersweet chocolate opening, lots of sweet malty notes before some residual hop bitterness to counter. Plenty of smooth mocha, hazelnut, coffee, and earthy flavour. Plenty of lightness, straw and fruity notes, to make for a refreshing taste. Finish is smooth, on the dry side, and toasty. Pretty cool, tasty and balanced though perhaps not my favourite stout style.

Mouthfeel has a lot of malty body but is quite light, plenty of soft carbonation to make a mild refreshing bite. A lot of richness, smooth chocolate to offset the malt works nicely. Drinks really smoothly, coating on finish. Really drinkable.

A really tasty beer. Pretty hard to set down for too long, has a good offsetting bitterness to avoid the sugars taking over. Chocolate is somewhat of a complimenting flavour rather than the whole beer itself. Works pretty well, certainly interesting.
