Poured from a 14.9 oz nitro can, received in a beer of the month six pack from Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, Virginia, into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours black with a good sized creamy white head. Smells of a normal stout, not as much of a chocolate smell as the name would lead you to believe, but still pleasant. Tastes of a weak stout, but with a chocolate overtone, which is very tasty. Smooth finish for this light bodied beer, perfect carbonation. Overall, above average beer.

A: Dark black and opaque, modest tan head that sticks around but doesn't leave much lacing.

S: Unsurprisingly, lots and lots of chocolate.

T/M: Big chocolatey flavor, giving way to a bit of a roasted malt aftertaste by the end of each sip, with an occasional touch of coffee shining through. Delicious: loads of sweet chocolate up front with the roasted flavors and coffee imparting a little bitter edge as the followthrough. Very creamy and smooth.

O: A really nice chocolate stout, very rich and tasty, with just enough extra going on to prevent it from being totally straightforward.

Poured from a nitro can beautifully. The pour is so sexy you can't wait to sample it. It's a jet black with a lighter tan head. The nose is all chocolate, the taste is all chocolate. There's not much more to say than that. It's a fairly regular stout with an extra dose of chocolate combined with some nitro, so the pour and mouth feel are rather creamy.
