4.18/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours pitch black color with a cascading release of tan bubbles like a Guinness that rush up to a 1 finger creamy/foamy tan head that faded slowly and left really good lacing coating the sides as it slid back down into the brew and settled into a creamy layer on top with spotty lacing remaining on the sides.

Smells like chocolate, cocoa powder, coffee beans, roasted malt/grains, burnt wood, lemon zest or light citrus hops, caramel and light vanilla; the smoky and chocolate notes dominate, and there is no hint of the ABV. Smells like a milk stout due to the strong chocolate notes, but to me it was nice with enough malty complexity to make it enjoyable as the snifter rose towards my face.

Flavor follows suit and like the nose smells like chocolate, cocoa powder, coffee beans, roasted malt/grains, burnt wood, lemon zest, citrus hops, caramel, light vanilla and booze; the smoky and chocolate notes still dominate, but there is more bitterness in the flavor like hops and/or coffee like a Starbucks were poured in the mix. There is no hint of the ABV, but the chestnuts listed on the bottle do show up and dance around like a drunk freshmen at a fall pledge party. Strong chocolate notes, roasted or smoked grains and coffee bitterness finish off each sip, but it was enjoyable and very flavorful getting better as it warmed.

Mouthfeel is thick and chewy, like a dense old brew that would move like syrup, with very mild carbonation, a slick and almost watery feel across the tongue and a roasted, bitter aftertaste that is a combo of cocoa, coffee, citrus and burnt grains – this leaves a similar taste that mirrors finishing a Starbucks bold in the morning, so today I started and ended my day with the same great taste.

Overall I really liked this stout, which was dynamic with bold robust flavors that hid the alcohol and yet provided a buzz; this is a great dessert beer, and at $6.99/bottle it was a bargain and worth seeking out. I like what Evil Twin is pushing and will grab some more of their beers as this and Even More Jesus were very good stouts.

At first sip, you know this is more than just another chocolate stout. Smoked chestnuts and roasted coffee give this beer some nice depth and does a great job balancing any possible sweetness. The chocolate rounds out your palate and gives you this reassuring warm cozy feeling that everything's going to be ok...
However, as you work your way through the glass, the chocolate notes die down and the smoke rises. Better classified as a smoked stout with traces of chocolate than a chocolate stout with notes of smoked chestnuts.
Nevertheless, another great brew from Evil Twin.
