look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle courtesy of mgbickel pours an overcarbed dark brown color with a massive and unyielding froth of tan bubbles.

Nose is dark chocolate galore with a mild grassy hop aroma. This really does smell like a freshly opened bar of Hershey's Dark.

Lactose-y sourness mingles with a weak chocolate malt and has a bit of nuttiness. Mouthfeel blows goats - overcarbonated and flabby body. Not a huge fan of this one...I like the idea and the aroma, but the flavor does not deliver sweet, creamy chocolaty goodness. Bummer, I was really looking forward to this one.

Pours jet black with a small light tan head. In the aroma, a small roast and chocolate. In the taste, lots of chocolate up front, with a small spice underneath. A small spice like bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with and dry spice of cinnamon and all spice in the aftertaste. Quite nice, just the wrong time of year for me.

Had this on 2014-03-03 in Columbia, PA

A - Opaque dark brown with a 3-finger dark tan head and nice lacing.

S - Chocolate, coffee, malted milk, roasted grain. Very nice.

T - Milk and dark chocolate, char, light coffee, toffee and curdled cream, which adds a milk sugar and tart flavor. Finishes pretty clean with lingering roasted and hop bitterness.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Creamy but on the thinner side; more like a Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald than a Founder's Porter.

O - Another good brew from Fat Head's.

Pours a nice black, solid, with a 2 finger of dark tan head. Th aroma isn't too pungent, but there's some soft chocolate and vanilla notes, with roast and a light fruit note. Taste shines so much more with a rich dark chocolate, earthy vanilla, roast, light coffee, and sweet nuttiness. Mouthfeel is a bit prickly with a somewhat elevated carbonation level and a upper medium body. A little up in down, but the high points are high and its enjoyable in the end.

A: Very dark brown. Mostly opaque, so appears black in the glass. Forms a modest, light tan colored head, that reduces to a patchy surface coating. Leaves some moderate lacing on the way down.

S: Not overly aromatic and what is there isn't all that great: cola, acidic coffee, and cocoa.

T: Ah, the taste is much better. Moderately sweet with a nice lusciousness. Chocolate, cola, and vanilla along with some roasted malts and a touch of coffee. Vanilla sweetness on the back end.

M: Again, a very respectable mouthfeel for a stout. Full bodied and voluptuous with a pleasant roundness in the mouth. Moderate sweetness. Slight cocoa chalkiness. Mild bitterness.

O: A nice beer. Aroma doesn't do it justice, and while the flavors are quite nice, the mouthfeel on this beer really help its finer qualities display themselves.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours pitch black with just a little light getting through. Nice fluffy kakhi head that sticks around and leaves nice lacing. The aromas are pretty underwhelming. I can't pick up on much chocolate or vanilla. The aromas are pretty underwhelming. Lots of malts and it has grainy/mineral/metallic like aromas. It tastes much better than it smells. The dark chocolate notes come through in the flavors. It gives it a solid bitterness. There's a mild hop kick. There's a touch of black coffee in the mix as well. The vanilla practically goes unnoticed. Ehh. There's some caramel notes that linger giving it a subtle milky sweetness. Mouthfeel is pretty nice. It's medium-bodied, fluffy, creamy, moderate carbonation making it pretty smooth. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

I'm personally not feeling this one too much. Fat Heads brews some stellar beers, so maybe I had unfair expectations. This is average to me and they brew alot of insanely awesome dark beers. I don't think this one is going to grow on me either, but I am going to revisit to double check.
