look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Near black body, all but opaque to light, crowned with a massive, persistent tan-colored head, with superb retention. Thick, unbroken lacing loats the glass walls.

Aroma: Abundant notes of dark roast coffee, and to a much lesser extent, cocoa. There is also a faint hint of sweetness. The aroma is more of strong dark roasted cold coffee, than cocoa, or chocolate. No hop presence that I could detect.

Taste: Cold, dark coffee dominates the taste from start to finish. Along the way, there are notes of bitter cocoa, as well. Late in the taste, there is a hint of burnt flavor. Finishes with a note of strong cold coffee. As in the aroma, no hop presence was notable.

Mouth feel: A touch thin, with hints of zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Not bad at all. Purchased at HEB in Texas for a modest $4.89 for a six-pack of twelve-ounce cans, One would be hard-pressed to find any other chocolate stout near this price point. Though it seems to me to be more of a coffee stout, a good value, nonetheless. I expect it would pair very well with chocolate desserts.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve ounce aluminum can, served in a South American-style Pilsener glass.
