Harpoon Chocolate Stout…in a bottle from the Winter Mix Pack

Appearance-pours a dark brown to black color, despite an aggressive pour all I can get are small dashes of bubbles to pass for head, these are white with a dash of tan.

Smell-aromatic with touches of sweet cocoa, plain cane sugar, fusel alcohol and light bread. Again, it’s quite pungent.

Taste/Mouthfeel-light to medium mouthfeel with a syrupy consistency. Chocolate upfront, almost gets too sweet but pulls back just enough with some roasted flavors. Mix of bread and alcohol is there as well but the other flavors overpower, could work but the syrupy taste is really offputting. This continues all the way through, not that great a smoothness, syrup is the last note on the tongue.

Overall-the consistency of this beer was off-putting to me and so I recommend other versions of this style. Has some other things going for it if you can get past the mouthfeel, I couldn’t.

3.65/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Serving: Bottle

Appearance: Deep and dark. HUGE tan head.
Smell: Nothing complex really here. Chocolate up front, milk and a little something floral.
Taste: 3.5 Again, pretty linear but quite tasty. Not complex but it's chocolate and beer. If I can quote The Sound of Music in a beer review "These are a few of my favorite things"
Mouthfeel: Not the chewy monster that I normally get a stout for but I won't be surprised if it does linger well into the evening. 3.75
Overall: 3.75 My first chocolate stout and as a chocolate lover I think I have found something I am going to investigate more.
