Oh theres chocolate in this one, don’t worry. Tons of coffee, chocolate and a nice roastiness. Smells insane. Taste is more of a dark chocolate with some coffee and a hint of vanilla. Really silky smooth. Overall an awesome stout, I would highly recommend. Cheers.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought in Redstone Liquor Store, Stoneham (MA). Aged more than a year. Pours a deep dark red with no head nor lacing. Aroma features an interesting mix of chocolate, pepper, roasted malt, hops, alcohol, cinnamon, liquorice and vanilla. Taste is mostly about chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Good balance. Full bodied. Not too heavy considering the high ABV.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Thanks to ModeEngage! Clear dark reddish brown with a small tan head that lasts in a ring. Aromas of mostly a musty, vegetal note with roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla and light chili pepper behind it. Flavor is roasty at first with malt and coffee, dark chocolate, cinnamon and light vanilla follow. Not much of a spicy kick to it but enough to be interesting. Medium bodied, smooth with a roasty, slightly dry end.
