Double Chocolate Stout pours a black color with a large lacing tan head. There is a slight roasted and malty aroma, but rather weak. The taste is strong with chocolate flavors, very creamy and some roasted malt flavors make it through as well. Nice and creamy, just a tad on the watery side. Overall a very nice chocolate stout.
