Poured out of a 12oz glass into a pint glass.

A-jet black body, nice thick, mocha head.

S-great intense smell of dark chocolate.

T-some coffee, dark chocolate throughout and almost an ice cream like finish

M-full and slick

D-this is certainly one of the better chocolate stouts out there. No fake flavor. No detectable hop flavor so it might loose points for not being "beer" enough. great beer for the chocoholics.

poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

dark dark dark with an eggshell foam on top. this beer will make the whole room smell like a chocolate factory. it definitely tastes like chocolate - dark unsweetened 80% cacao chocolate. smooth on the tongue. an absolute delight. hadn't seen it around in a year or two. glad to see it back. I probably wouldn't have more than one in a night but will keep a few in the fridge to keep those upcoming wintertime blues away.

I don't care what the critics say but this is a extremely nice stout. The chocolate is a bit overwhelming but I like that in a stout. The mouthfeel lingers and is pleasant, from a stout lover I give this two thumbs up. It is not overwhelmed with high alcohol volume so it is a great fast sipper and has wonderful flavors.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - Black-brown color. Nice medium-khaki head with moderate retention and low lace.

S - Fantastic nose absolutely loaded with caramelized grains, biscuit, milk chocolate, and mellow roast coffee.

T - Sweet, caramelized roast grains from front to back with a big chocolate presence. A delicate, raw, earthy grain flavor through the aftertaste stands as a reminder of how pleasant a stout can be when the alcohol takes a back seat and grain bill is allowed to shine. What the flavor profile lacks in complexity it more than makes up in depth.

M - Thick and smooth with a touch of a creaminess. The sweetness lingers on the tongue with a mild dryness on the delayed back end.

O - A big, chewy stout with surprising drinkability, and a fantastic grain character. On the sweeter side of the style, but not to any determent imho.

Harpoon and Chocolate Stout, where can you go wrong?
This thin stout was poured this into a pint glass and the head didn't hang around long.
The smell is great. A very distinct non-over powering chocolate aroma but where I've smelt it before I can't put my finger on it.
The taste is awsome. While it's being drank this thin stout leaves notes of chocolate in the nose and and again in the after taste.
This is a very drinkable beer. It is not a filling stout and it is not over loaded with chocolate.
I recommend this beer and rate it high.

This was a happy surprise while visiting the local gas station/best beer selection spot in town. I was first struck by the smell, all chocolate, like the Hershey's frisbee I had when I was a kid (that's a good thing). It poured nicely, but a little less head than I expected. The first taste was all chocolate and very smooth. After a few sips, I realized that although it has a full chocolate taste, it is not very sweet. I think this is why I love it so much. It's easy to drink several without feeling like your teeth are going to rot out by the time you are done. Another solid effort by Harpoon Brewing.
