D'oh! Had such high hopes for this offering from Harpoon. Pours a dark brown as you'd expect in a chocolate, and the aroma is pure chocolate. Like smelling a vat of melted Hershey's. Unbelieveable aroma. Really hoped that the taste would match, but no. Falls very flat. Slight chocolate taste, very light cocoa notes, but if it weren't for the nose I wouldn't be sure this is a chocolate. Maybe Harpoon will refine the taste as it evolves if they keep it as an option, 'cause not there yet. Southern Tier Choklat and Rogue Choc Stout still the best two chocolates by far...
Serving type: on-tap

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