Bottle kept in fridge. Served in a pint glass.

A- Pours a very dark brown. Turns black in the glass, letting no light through. Has some foamy tan head that lingered a while.

S- Dark roasted malts. Cocoa, and some coffee.

T- Dark chocolate. Malty. It follow the scent profile well. Not as chocolaty as I expected.

M- Medium body with little carbonation.

O- Good. It was enjoyable. Glad I tried it, but not something I would rant and rave about.

For being a well known beer that I have avoided for no real reason, this was a very nice surprise.

Pours an EPIC dark brown with beautiful pillowy nitro head.
lacing is very good. Top notch on looks.

Smells lovely, chocolate and smooth, inviting aroma

Taste follows, very smooth and very mild. not a whole lot of flavor here but it is so smooth and the chocolate is there.

Feels like the best stout to touch my tongue.

I would recommend this beer to anyone and everyone. Amazing brew and I am ashamed that I had waited to try it.

The beer appears dark brown, nearing blackness. The tan head is enormous, encompassing the upper half of the pint glass, leaving a thick sheet of lacing stuck to the walls of the glass. The aroma is pretty straightforward, with chocolate malt leading the way, followed by hints of vanilla. The flavor also delivers a healthy amount of chocolate, as promised. A nice roast character is present throughout, and pleasantly lingers in the finish. The body is pretty thin, bordering on watery. This beer is easy to drink, and well suited for one who enjoys both chocolate and beer. Best is smaller quantities, I enjoy returning to this beer on occasion.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very dark brown in color with a three finger light-brown head that slowly recedes to a half finger leaving behind some exceptional lacing.

Smell: Very inviting. Strong aroma of chocolate, coffee, milk, with a hint of caramel and molasses. Lots of roasted character.

Taste: Tons of chocolate with coffee and cream backing it up. Mild bitterness and a very smooth finish. Super tasty.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation. The body is a little bit light in my opinion but it's not bad.

Overall: A very sweet and tasty beer that I would happily buy again.
