DATE TASTED: January 30, 2015... GLASSWARE: Samuel Smith tulip pint... OCCASION: Shark Tanking it up on a Friday... APPEARANCE: pitch black body, as expected; rocky, creamy, substantial three-finger brown head; lacing webs and spreads like camouflage; handsome... AROMA: beautifully milky, creamy chocolate with some almond and vanilla; extremely peaty and toasty... PALATE: smooth as silk; a bit slick; mellow and purely drinkable--a nice, creamy stout that ends with a slightly gritty finish...TASTE: as chocolately and toasty as this is, it is the secondary flavors of hops that inject a nuanced dimension to the stout; lactic and chocolate, back at the end...OVERALL: having binged on this all night in a Brooklyn bar some years ago, I can attest first-hand to its sessionability; drinking a singular bottle in the comfort of my own home, I can attest to its deservedly solo treatment.. the only downer could be the price: $4.99 for a 16oz.er is a bit much, but if it's ever on tap and on special ...

Pours an opaque dark brown, bordering on black, with some slight deep red hi-lights when extremely backlit. Moderate, mocha head, settling rapidly to a thin film, which does not mute the aromas at all.
And what aromas! Dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, and cafe au lait, are the most predominant on the nose.
The mouth feel is velvety smooth, bringing tastes that fulfill the promises of the aromas. There is the addition of some medium bitterness on the swallow.
This is the type of chocolatey stout I often crave, and this one delivers big time. In a word....outstanding!
