Poured from the bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.

A: Poured a rich, dark, chocolatey brown. Billowing tan two finger head that quickly dissipated. Looked absolutely gorgeous for the first 15 or so seconds after pouring. Light lacing left on the inside of the glass, but what was left stayed tight.

S: Sweet malts with light cocoa undertones. Reminded me of a softer version of the scent left in the glass after drinking chocolate milk as a child.

T: Here's where things started to disappoint. The taste is just like the smell, but very, very watered down. It feels like half the beer got flavored, and the rest didn't.

M: One of the lightest stouts I've ever had. Very thin and watery. Light carbonation fades very fast, even before swallowing. Leaves a lot to be desired.

O: Not awful, but by no means good. If offered one, I would drink it, but I wouldn't buy this again. This was my first chocolate stout, and I'd like to try more before I form any opinions on this style.
