A: Pours a pitch black motor oil looking substance. Highly viscous with a wonderful and smooth creamy tan head. Granted, that's as far as I can take it with this paper cup, except that it does leave a nice lace.

A: Smells a bit like German chocolate cake with a hint of cherries and a somewhat noticeable alcohol presence.

T: Taste follows with chocolate, toasted almonds, extra roasty malts, burnt toast, dark fruits, and some alcohol again.

F: In one word; decadent. In more than one word; smooth, rich, velvety, creamy, full bodied, again with the alcohol warmth.

O: This is a great stout. With the alcohol presence dialed down, this might be an exceptional chocolate stout.

Look - pitch black with a one-finger mocha head with little retention or lacing.
Smell - chocolate really shines, almost like cocoa powder was dumped in the beer, there's also more subtle notes of sweet roasted malts.
Taste - roasted malts hit hard, bitter coffee, and notes of sweet chocolate.
Feel - good carbonation, slightly thin body, sticky mouthfeel.
Overall, I'd like more chocolate in the flavor profile and for the body to be thicker/chewier as opposed to slick and thin.

Pours black with small, thin, short lived brown head. Light lacing

Dark chocolate, roasted caramel malt and cocoa powder

Roasted sweet malt, dark chocolate, hints coffee. Finishes semi dry with lingering Bitter chocolate. Heavier side of medium body. Medium carbonation in my opinion slightly to much

I love this beer. Smells like nesquik, actually tastes like it too. Like a wonderful stout mixed with a whole box of nesquik. Thick. Nice malt. Midnight black. Nice coppery head and lacing.

This has been a favorite of my wife and I for years. Reserved a couple at Tipsy's in Littleton, CO for Christmas Day snicker's for Bob and the fam. Snicker's - Rogue Double Chocolate Stout mixed with Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar. But this stout is a heck of a thick chocolate stout with good ABV. Almost a dessert beer like Southern Tier's offerings. Tons of chocolate, that's all I have to say.

Appearance is pitch black with a tan head that left a bit of lacing.
The aroma is big dark chocolate along with a caramel malt sweetness and cocoa powder.
The tastes are dominated by bittersweet chocolate along with some malt sweetness and a bit of earthy hop.
The palate is medium-full with chocolate and earthy bitterness lingering.
Overall this is a really nice stout that definitely lives up to the name.
