Pours a dark color, mostly black, with a hint of ruby. A modest head soon dissipates.
Aromas are mostly subdued. Notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cream, and nutty malt.
The flavors contain hints of dark chocolate, roasted and nutty malts and a bright and light acidity from the black malts. Overall there is a moderate coffee bean like bitterness along with a hint of hops bitterness.
Medium bodied, gently carbonated and very smooth. The finish is dry.
Not complex but balanced and well crafted. A nice session stout.

Sampled in March 2018 from 12oz bottle in pint glass. Bottled on date listed on the bottle was 12/22/2017.

Appearance: Pitch black, dark color, with a thin dark tan head. The head lasted a moderate time, and left a little lacing on the glass, but not a lot.

Smell: There are roasted malt aromas, along with some chocolate and some spice and hops bitterness aromas. There was not as much chocolate as their Chocolate Love Stout.

Taste: Full-bodied with nice balance of malt and hops. There is a hint of sweetness and caramel flavors that may be due to the malts, but it is balanced nicely with pronounced coffee flavor, and a little bitterness from hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, and smooth. Very creamy. Moderate alcohol which matches with the 5.5% on the label.

Overall: Overall, this is an interesting stout. I like it better than the Yard's Chocolate Love Stout, which had too much sweetness from chocolate flavors.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Black with a nice tan head that dissipated quickly into a rocky film. Left some nice lacing.

S---Roasted malts. Coffee with a little bit of chocolate.

T---Coffee & chocolate, but not really as flavorful as I was hoping; certainly not luscious like the bottle said.

F---Smooth & creamy just like the bottle said. Their marketing department is batting .500, which is probably pretty good as far as salesmen telling the truth goes. Lots of carbonation gives it a light, almost bubbly feel.

O---I haven't been very much of a Yards fan. This is their best beer that I've had.

Black color. Thin white head that sticks to the glass. Coffee and chocolate aromas. Taste matches, with these notes accentuating a solid roasted malt backbone. Lingering milk chocolate finish. All around a pretty good stout.
