Very Chocolaty. Decent Head, dark black color.A little too sweet. Maybe just wasn't in the mood. smooth Compared side by side with Rouge's Shakespeare Stout and lost. They are comparable, but the Shakespeare is smoother and not as sweet.

Pitch black, moderate head. The aroma is dominated by chocolate, milk chocolate, very sweet but pleasant. Little coffee notes. This is not a very rich aroma, but evidently promising and well balanced. The taste steers the experience toward a roasted character. Here I find roasted malts and a very dry finish, quite hoppy and sharp. Medium mouthfeel. Very tasty beer but I admit I expected more.

This is a big toasty roasty dark ass bomb. Black as night. Aroma is big time chocolate syrup-really inviting. Taste is Dark chocolate with a significant bitter bite/aftertaste this beer will make you earn it. Mouthfeel is fairly rough-not much smoothness which is the biggest defect. Overall-great appearance and aroma with a bit Ida too bitter finish and a lack of smooth body. Ok stout.

I think this is a really good benchmark chocolate stout. It isn't amazing, but is really well done. Lots of chocolate and good mouthfeel. Overall this is a well balanced stout.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into pint glass in February 2016. There was no 'bottled by' date on the bottle.

Appearance: Very dark with nice thick brown head. Just a little lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, and can definitely smell the chocolate, but there is also some aroma of roasted malts, and a little vanilla and hops as well.

Taste: There is a strong chocolate flavor, but it is not too sweet. There is roasted malt and coffee influence and balanced with a little hops. It is a great balance that is not too bitter, nor too sweet. It is very creamy and smooth. The balance between the flavors is great, and not dominated by the chocolate.

Mouthfeel: This beer is very smooth and creamy with a nice aftertaste that is not too bitter or sweet.

This is an excellent stout. You will enjoy it if you like a smooth, bold stout with some chocolate and coffee flavors. It is complex, and every time I drink it, I get something new. Definitely a beer to drink again. The more I drink it, the more I like it.

Bottle. Pours jet black with ample light brown head. Notes of dark chocolate, almost like chocolate milk. Sophisticated, yet drinkable, stout.
