look: 2.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a black color. 1/5 inch head of a tan color. Slight retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong chocolate, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, alcohol, hint of yeast, and a hint of honey. Fits the style of an American Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong roasted malt, strong chocolate, sweet malt, int of yeast, slight alcohol, and a hint of honey. Overall, weak appearance, good aroma, body, blend, and feel.

120z bottle into a pint glass. freshness code is partially smudged, and the rest is impossible to comprehend.

looks great. jet black body, generous oatmeal colored head. excellent lacing.

aroma is kinda winey, some dried fruit. no chocolate whatsoever.

taste is slightly sour, cherry-like. not really unpleasant, just not as advertised, might be a fairly old bottle. not sweet, no spices. some roasted malt.

only between thin and medium on the mouth. tart cherry and some roasted malt on the finish.

overall, as noted above, doesnt taste bad, just not the chocolate honey beer advertised. clear freshness dating would help

L: Pours dark brown to almost black.
S: Dark malts. Chocolate and roasted nuts.
T: Bittersweet chocolate, with a touch of honey. Some spicy hops just in the background.
F: A little light for the ABV but it's very smooth and easy to drink.
O: Solid stout that's a little on the sweeter side. I'd drink it again.

12 ounce bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Greenville, South Carolina.

Appearance: Slips out a black body crowned with two inches of tan-hued suds.

Smell: A leading sniff of soy sauce, as well as roasted malts, clearance chocolate, burnt sugars and spiced honey candy.

Taste: It's sweet, moderately so. Hinting of honey sweet, even. Sweetness is blunted by roastiness with some low-grade chocolate. Very mild spice element for a little, low pepper note. A bit of umami. Sweetish, honey-roast finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: At best it's so-so.

This pours lightly but with rich colors. Almost no head at first then tan fizzy and thin. Brown and rich with excellent clarity. nose is fragrant with honey, big roasty malt, chocolate. I am in love already. Hop pepper, flower petals. Fudgy with caramel and nutty. Mouthfeel is light and the beer flows sweetly. Sultry roast brings all kinds of chocolate, nuts and honey cleanly and briskly across the palate like a silken piece of chocolate cake. A mouthfeel masterpiece. This beer was like a love potion filled with spice, tempting with honey that actually lightened the finish to show you herbal hop pepper and a few bubbles. Lingers dark with some clean bitterness and strong flavors. Deceptively light and like a bouquet of scents and textures.

A: [3.50] Looks dark brown to black int he glass. Has some red tinges ont he sides. The head is about 1/2 a finger of tan creamy bubbles. The head is gone faster than I can type this. The bottle lists the ABV (7.0%). There is a date code but I don't understand it.

S: [3.50] Coffee, charred hickory and charred leather.

T: [4.00] Different from nose. Comes across with a lot of cocoa flavor. The flavor is chocolate, toasted marshmallow, vanilla and then a bit of hoppiness.

M: [3.75] Nice mouthfeel. Right around medium with medium carbonation. The toasted marshmallow char lives a lingering flavors and sensation on the palate.

O: [3.75] This is a pretty solid beer. Has nice sweet characteristics. It is above average and worth drinking again.
