silky smooth cold weather beer that's pretty exciting to find on nitro. there is a british style pub near me that I will visit just for beers like this, especially on a cool day and if futbol or rugby is on.

Pours a deep dark brown color with a small top of cappuccino coloured head.
Aroma is of dark chocolate,caramel, coffee,bread and roasted malts. The flavour is sweet with strong flavour of dark chocolate and some notes of coffee. The finish has a some small bitterness, while still having a good amount of the roasted malts and the chocolate in the flavour.I sense is a little bit watery in the finish. The aftertaste has a good lenght with a good feel. Mouthfeel is silky and smooth with a moderate carbonation.Goes down very easy.
A delicious stout. Great flavour. Enjoyed it a lot.

Widget can pour pour yields a 1/2 inch creamy, creamy, creamy, tan head over a dark brown body with gorgeous, sticky lacing. Nose of chocolate and some coffee. Taste mirrors nose with flavors of a light and sweet coffee. Nice feel and overall, I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet as I've been enjoying it for years. Cheers!

Look: Virtually black until you hold it up to the light for a bit of brown shine. Thick, tan foam on top.

Smell: Sweet, milky malt. Not a whole lot of chocolate on the nose.

Taste: Dark roasted coffee and chocolate, with a sweet malt countering most of the bitterness until the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Thinner and more carbonated than expected for a stout.

Overall: I'm not sure if I'd call it "double chocolate" but it's still a fine drink.

Five bucks for a bottle over at H-E-B. A little on the expensive side, but I think this one is meant for the occasional treat rather than having every day.

Look, smell, and taste are all exactly what you'd expect. Dark, creamy, and chocolatey. Like a lot of other dark flavored beers, I pick up some coffee notes here and there too. Pairs extremely well with a chocolate muffin. I can imagine you might pack on the pounds if you drink this too often, so use sparingly! Overall, an excellent stout with a strong flavor that doesn't taste artificial.

I have had both the can & bottle versions. I do prefer the can version due to the creamy/foamy head that it gives. Taste like luxurious stout. Cheers! A- (90-94) score range
