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.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Great looking opaque/black pour with a nice adequate 1+ finger mocca head. Smell was baking chocolates up front with semi-sweet chocolate on the back. Fits the name and that's what I was looking for. Maybe some burnt malts stuffed in there, but huge chocolate. Taste was melted chocolate bars with a little hop finish. Again, some dark fruits/malts are there, but the chocolate takes center stage on this chocolate stout bomb. I get a blend of different chocolate which is nice. Baking, semi sweet and dark combination. Feel is middle of the road and quite silky/creamy. Mild carbonation on this which is just fine. Overall- It is what it is! A chocolate stout with not a ton of bells and whistles. If you like chocolate in your beer, this is right there for you. Not over the top, but a good sipper and pretty enjoyable. A solid effort that hit the spot for me. Not the best out there, but work the try-

Pour is deep brown with a long-lasting khaki head and great lacing. Sweet chocolate, Hershey syrup, lacto, light roast, and coffee in the aroma. Taste is much more roasty, dark chocolate, a hit watered down, caramel, coffee, and anise with a lightly roasted bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Not bad for a chocolate stout which I'm not always too crazy about.
