Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This triple chocolate stout is a unique interpretation of the style, combining three different chocolate malts, cacao nibs and 63 percent semi-sweet chocolate, creating a sinfully delicious brew. The addition of blackstrap molasses produces an earthy, caramelized tone in an already complex flavor profile. It's creamy, milkshake-like mouthfeel earns this beer the reputation of being dessert in glass.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. My wife tries to avoid head (womp womp) but ended up with two fingers of fizz. On mine, though, a proper pour gives me almost nothing which quickly becomes absolutely nothing. No lacing, no cap, just a sad, miniscule ring around the rim. Color is a nice jet black, though. Very beautiful.

Smell and flavor is very subtle. Bitter chocolate, some coffee notes, not much else. Not as strong smell of flavor as most stouts. Warmth on the back end. No bad, but there's not much there.

Full mouthfeel, though. Very nice.

Not sad I tried it, but probably not going to have this one again which is disappointing. Judging by the great overall rating but lackluster recent reviews, maybe the brew has changed.

Creamy and a fair amount of chocolate. Nothing really stands out about this one in a competitive style these days
