Poured a beautiful inky brown with a thick tan head. Just gorgeous to look at. The scent is subdued chocolate and cocoa and the taste follows the scent. This is more subdued than I would expect given it's appearance with just a hint of coffee. The mouth feel is cream goodness. Overall a very pleasurable experience. Would have rated it higher if the taste match the gorgeous appearance.

A smooth and solid black appearance with a 4 inch beige head. It's got a strong chocolate milk laced with alcohol aroma which would be a lot nicer if the alcohol level was lowered. Initial taste is of chocolate milk and a healthy dose of alcohol. Some roasted coffee flavor follow and lingers in the after taste. I much prefer the second half of this flavor profile. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied, just as one should expect from a nitro can. Overall, the strong alcohol presence in this one severely limits its potential for me. I know I should like it, everyone else seems to, but I just do not get what everyone else is getting. Had it a couple times and each experience has been the same, whether in the can or om tap.

Poured into a tulip glass. Super dark chocolate color with nice one finger head. Good lacing

Smells like hot chocolate. Slight alcohol aroma.

The taste is unreal. Super smooth chocolate with that english stout finish. Really good beer. Cold wet day beer.

Mouthfeel is really smooth with perfect carbonation.

Overall one of my favorite winter beers. Great chocolate stout.
