Smelled chocolate notes upon opening the beer. The chocolate dominates the beer but as the beer warms up the coffee notes really shine through. Very smooth for a stout and probably one of the smoothest stouts that I have ever had.

I had the nitro version of this stout on draught in a bar. It was served in a tulip glass. It poured a dark mahogany - nearly opaque - with one finger of creamy, mocha-colored head. and lacing that did not dissipate throughout the pour. It smelled of burnt coffee, chocolate, and licorice. The taste largely follows the nose but it finishes with a slight hoppy bitterness. The mouthfeel is rather thin, not unexpected with the moderate ABV of 5.5%, but it is very creamy on nitro. Overall, it is a good representation of its style.

poured into a pint glass from 12oz bottle. bottled 2/26/16.

looks pretty decent, black body with large fluffy tan head. leaves very good lacing.

not too much on the nose, a little roastiness and faint coffee.

taste same as the nose. smooth tasting, not overly roasted malts.

mouth is a little on the thin side.

overall and ok session stout. Chocolate Love Stout is much better.
