This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a black color with a one finger off white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace leaving some clingy lacing on the glass and then sliding into the beer.
The smell had a nice roasty to bitter coffee bean up front then a nice sweet fairly thick chocolate base rounding it out.
The taste was mainly sweet with the touch of the roast and the bitter gliding into the aftertaste and finish.
The mouthfeel was about a light to medium in body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation runs nice for the style and for me.
Overall, this was a nice American stout that I think I could have again.

Pours black with a khaki head. Smells of faint chocolate and char. Tastes like roasted chocolate malts. Feels slightly thin with moderate carbonation. Overall a decent stout, but I was hoping for more chocolate in this one.

This beer bought from a draft pub, looks like a stout. It is black with a half inch enduring head in a pint glass. The body is clear but opaque, and there is foamy lacing left as you drink it. The aromas are chocolatey and hoppy, but the taste and result is not really a stout. This beer is really an IPA in stout's clothing. A chocolate IPA I should think, not so much a chocolate stout. The finish is long and bitter, which is just fine if you enjoy IPAs as I do. The mouthfeel is a little weak, the alcohol punch substantial, and I don't feel like I've actually just drunk my thrice daily bread. I still prefer my Guinness.
