look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a nice dark/black color, with a medium to light head. Head retention is nice throughout consumption, and head color dark brown. Very slight lacing.

Smell - Roasted chocolate overtones, not as strong as I was expecting, but still nice aroma. Mallt & caramel are also present.

Taste - Chocolate, but should be for a mocha, right? Bitterness is in check giving the beer a very nice balance. Also think I'm tasting a little Black Patent grain, good stuff. Also picking up a very slight pepper taste.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, was expecting a fuller body with the bottle description, but body still is very pleasant. Might be slightly over carbonated (probably to appeal to the masses), but not enough to impact the taste in a negative way.

Overall - Better than average stout, especially for the chocolate fan. Seeing a head from start to finish was also nice. Definitely recommended for the choco stout lovers out there.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours engine oil black with a thin caramel, large bubbled ring around the crown of the glass.

S - Predominantly roasted mocha, bitter chocolate, and mild charcoal. The aroma is a little weak, but still very good.

T - Mimics the nose with very large doses of roasted coffee that overlays the tongue like a blanket, minimal mild bittersweet chocolate, and a clean lingering bitterness.

M - Thin medium bodied and fairly dry on the finish.

D - Pretty good.
