Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of chocolate, malt, roasting, cream, vanilla, and a hint of lactose. Poured pitch black in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film in top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Opaque. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, roasting, cream, slight soy, lactose, and vanilla. Medium body. Oily, then slick, dry texture. Soft carbonation. Medium sweet, malt, roast, cream, lactose, vanilla finish is lightly dry. 7.1%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2011
On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malt. One of the heaviest chocolate aromas I have found in a beer. The flavor is also very nice. I get a lot of milk chocolate and roasted malt notes, with some vanilla and cream notes mixed in. There is also a hint of coffee/espresso in the flavor which I really enjoy. Medium, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice chocolate beer.

draft... medium brown body, mocha head, not a ton to look at... a sweeter stout, lots of sweet chocolate notes, a bit unbalanced but not so sweet that it makes it hard to drink, ok
