Review from notes:

Appears a dark brown color that is slightly see through when held to the light.

Smells of roasted barley, light coffee, not too much chocolate on the nose.

Taste is a bit too mellow. Can't really pull out the chocolate. More of just a roasty taste.

Mouthfeel is too thin for the style.

Overall a disappointment.

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.
