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.

Pours black with a strong aroma of coffee,malt,chocolate. Taste is similar to aroma with a bit of grain and roasted malt and coffee was dominant. It felt just a bit thin but was still a great stout that I've had on several occasions and would try again

Stouts and porters are my favorite style and this one does not disappoint. More of an English style stout than an Irish Dry Stout, there is plenty of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate in this enjoyable brew. Although a substantial head and dark, near black body, the mouthfeel is on the thin side. Nevertheless, it is a smooth sessionable stout.

A very smooth stout. Nose is faint roasted coffee. Taste is well balanced coffee, malt and mild chocolate. Feel is medium with carbonation on the light side.
