A: Opaque deep brown/black with a very thick, creamy brownish-tan head. Looks awesome in the glass!

S: Initially milk chocolate when poured which quickly turns into a dark chocolate scent; roasted malts; mocha

T: Dark chocolate with a bittersweet flavor that is well balanced. A bit of a bitter coffee-like aftertaste in the finish. Slight alcohol booziness. A bit of a metallic-like flavor.

M: Awesome! Full bodied and very creamy. Medium carbonation.

O: Nice brew overall. The chocolate flavor is very pleasant and the brew itself is well balanced - not overly sweet or bitter. The only thing I didn't like was a slight metallic-like flavor. It's not a dealbreaker though and the brew would go great with a chocolate desert!

Poured into a snifter. Reviewed alongside Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout.

A: Black with one-finger, tan, creamy head that lasted a minute. Pretty good lacing.

S: Dark chocolate. Roasted and alcoholic.

T: Moderate sweetness and moderate bitterness. Roasted coffee and a nice nutty finish, which I like. Chocolate of course as well as an alcoholic taste.

M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Creamy, slightly dry and very warm.

O: This is a good stout. I would call it close to being a tie between this and the Big Eddy. The Big Eddy looked and smelled nicer than this beer, but this beer tasted better and had a slightly better mouthfeel.

Had this on tap at Surf Restaurant in Portsmouth, NH. Jet black appearance with a nice creamy head. You notice the smell of chocolate right away but also a nice roasty aroma emanates as well. On the first sip you taste the chocolate and maltiness right off the bat. It is just sweet enough. You also get the slight taste of alcohol without it being overpowering. The flavors compliment each other very nicely. Very smooth, velvet like feel in the mouth. I am a big fan of this style of beer and was very pleased with this offering. Was surprised to see it was at 10% alcohol! Very easy beer to drink and throw back a couple which could become dangerous at the alcohol level.
