Pours dark black with a thin lace of head. Has bourbon aromas which aren't very strong for 8.5% ABV. Flavor is masked by the extreme bitterness. Bitterness sticks around for awhile and almost seems artificial. In the end it's quite flavorless, masking bitterness, and no discernible chocolate taste to it. Not recommended.

It's a decent enough stout, and not too sweet which is a good thing. But if your going to call it Double Chocolate Stout, I expect at least a little chocolate in the flavor profile. Again, not bad, but I won't need to revisit this one again.
