look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a dark black with a small mocha colored head that has minimal retention. Thin lacing, but it lasts for while on the glass.

S: Some rich chocolate, a little bit of cream, and hints of roasted malt.

T: Rich and smooth chocolate, definitely on the sweet side. A hint of coffee and a little smoke right at the end. Chocolate is the dominant flavor as expected.

M: Medium bodied, very smooth and creamy. Drinks very easy.

O: Nothing crazy going on here, just a solid milk stout with lots of chocolate. What's not to like with that?

A: VERY dark brown/practically black. Completely opaque when held up to a light. Creamy tan head on top that dissipates to a thin film on the surface.

S: Average smell that was not too strong. Roasted malts with hint of chocolate

T: An interesting burnt taste is the first thing I notice - not bad, but interesting nonetheless. Bitter chocolate and roasted malts are present. Hint of sweetness at the back.

M: Really nice mouthfeel. A bit chalky, yet very smooth and creamy. Low carbonation.

Overall a very pleasant beer to drink. Actually wasn't as chocolaty as I expected, but still good nonetheless!

Poured from 14.9 oz nitro-can into standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown with a light brown/tan head. Beautiful as it settles, the movement underneath the half-finger head is trippy as hell, like brown cascading clouds, of course due to the nitro-can. Decent lacing left as I drink.

Smell: Pretty good. Chocolately, with coffee and toastyness, dark caramels and malts.

Taste: Also pretty good. I can see why they call it "Double Chocolate," as it's very chocolatey. There is also a strong taste of coffee, with a subtle burnt caramel taste.

Mouthfeel: It's ok, very heavy body, thick and creamy, but virtually no carbonation. I think a tad bit of carbonation would have made it better.

Overall: An excellent stout, notably in flavor and appearance. A definite buy-again.
