Neat label but otherwise a pretty straightforward, unexceptional stout. It did not bring the chocolate notes forward that I expected given the name. In fact, it seemed to be just a plain, normal, slightly watery-in-the-finish American stout. No harm done, but not as exciting as a lot of stouts. Dark, dark color, decent head, nose not outstanding, just typical stout malt & hops. The same for the flavor, with some of the more complex and bitter notes in some stouts not present here. Drank 26 July 2016.

Rating lowered. Aroma is nice, but Taste falls flat.
Very blah for a chocolate stout.

Dark brown clear body, light tan head that fades to a ring. Looks thin. Nose has mild artificial chocolate and roasty notes, and a root beer-like spice. Flavor is also artificial, mostly chocolate malt and piney mint, thankfully the aftertaste is decently long and has some authentic dark chocolate notes. Sweet. Body is thin with sharp carbonation.
Corner-cutting 'chocolate' 'stout'. Artificial chocolate and weak stout. Good as a no-think dessert beer, but not much else.
