On tap at the house of 1000 beers. Really nice looking pour. Fun looking and attractive. Thick choco moose head. Mild impy stout olfactory reflections. Initital impy stout flavors too. Flat. Finish is mostly impy stout chrko roasty thing. A little less rude than most impy stouts. You’d never know this is over 7%. Nope, not much of a sweet stout, more than that alky wise.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joe’s this beer poured a black color with a large fluffy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was roasty coffee and vanilla. The flavor was semi sweet malts, brewed coffee, vanilla, wood and a hint of Dr Pepper. The finish was long, dryish, woody and roasty. Thick and creamy body. Decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Maxs in Baltimore. Poured clear, almost black with a half a finger width tan head. Aromas were dark rich chocolate and roasted coffee. Heavily sweet chocolate flavors, but did not take away from the beer at all. You could really taste the dark malts and had a slight bitter finish. Loved this beer, would have gotten a growler if i had the $ on me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Amato’s - straightforward and not terribly complex - very creamy texture, with a medium body - flavor is surprisingly bitter, with some black malt character, but much of the bitterness might come from the chocolate used - a mild sweetness on the tail end, tasting a bit like a truffle in the finish - there isn’t much going on, but the chocolate is showcased well, so perhaps that is the point.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dark brown, with a light chocolate milk head. Aroma is lightly chocolate with something I can only describe as a fresh sea breeze. Taste is super rich and chocolatey. Like creamy chocolate milk with Hersheys chocolate syrup. Very faint bitterness at the end, so the sweetness does not dominate. Would go great with a dessert. Or as dessert. Not very complex, but hits the chocolatey spot.
