look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: poured with 1 inch of creamy tan head that dissipated over 3 minutes to a thin layer leaving nice lacing. The beer is black and does not let light through.

Smell: Very strong sweet chocolate, sweet roasted malt

Taste: Surprisingly hoppy and strong chocolate, sweet roasted malt

Mouthfeel: Hoppy tingle, medium carbonation, leaves mouth dry

Overall: Pretty drinkable, nice balance of hops and sweet malt, nice amount of chocolate, alcohol not very noticeable

220z. bomber into goblet.

It is an opaque, dark black with hints of deep red, almost purple throughout. The head is a thick, foamy, dark toffee with nice retention and beautiful lacing.
The aroma is of rich chocolatey malts with some light roasted coffee notes.
The flavor is more very chocolatey malts, with some light roasted malt flavors, with an almost astringent bitterness.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a good bit of carbonation. And while I feel that it is a fine mouthfeel it did not quite fit what I would expect for a chocolate stout, which would have been a bit heavier, creamier bodied with less carb.
Overall, while I was very impressed with this beer as a whole, I would definitely like to try this again and see if I can pick up more aspects of the flavor.

Tasted at the Tempe Great Arizona Beer Festival

I had previously stayed away from chocolate stouts. Not sure why. The color was very dark black with a nice thick head. Smell is chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Taste is creamy chocolate with just a hint of bitterness and alcohol. Mouthfeeel was almost slightly grainy. This might have been a function of the tasting environment. I can't wait to try this with a nice slice of plain cheesecake. Will pick up a bottle to have the next time cheesecake is on the menu.
