22 poured into a tall sniffer.

A - starts out with tall head of tiny bubbles, dies down to thin film, pretty nice lacing

S- when cool, a bit of sweetness and chocolate

T - cool, a very pleasing chocolate. I like this. As it warms, it seems to lose the sweetness I was enjoying and gained some bitterness; not necessarily a bad bitter, but it threw me off a bit after the initial sweetness

M - smooth when cool, a bit dry when warm

O - not a bad one, though I'm not sure I cared for how much it changed as it warmed up. I think it's not one to sip slowly.

A:Black with brown foam. Large head. Forms rings and has good retention. Can't look much better than this.

S: Bakers chocolate. Smells like milk chocolate malted milk ball candies.

T: Bittersweet chocolate all the way through. Finishes with a roasted malt bitterness. Chocolate flavoring was a bit overdone in my opinion.

M: Thick and creamy. Low carbonation. Perfect for the style.

O: A chocolate stout that delivers on the chocolate flavor.
