Nice chocolate malty aroma and ours with a nice coffee coloured head but it doesn't last long. Good mouthfeel with a balance of carbonation and stouty fullness. The rich malt and fruity chocolate flavours come through well and I thoroughly enjoyed this but just felt it was missing a little something to be really great. Hard to describe but a little bit thin in some way. That said I really enjoyed the sweet aftertaste and while chocolate stouts aren't usually my thing I would definitely have this one again.

Underwhelmed with this one, I've heard the nitro can version is much better. Perhaps I'll give it a try and re-review at a later date.

Appearance: dark as night; pours a sticky, chocolate milk coloured head that unfortunately doesn't stick around for long

Aroma: chocolate, dark and bitter/tart; some licorice

Taste & Mouthfeel: chocolate is there but not as much or as rich as hoped for given the name; instead a vanilla sweetness leads the flavour profile, very syrupy; medium/light body is a tad watered down, but glides across the palate

Overall: frankly this stout could use more backbone, it's not living up to it's name...
