3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured black with a large light brown creamy head that was fully lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was of a burnt cereal malts, a mild does of resin hops and a sweet yeast with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and molasses. It tasted richly sweet and quite malty with a small hint of coffee to start then progressed into a bitter-sweet chocolate-coffee flavor at the finish. Mouthfeel was full in body and creamy in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a quite satisfying chocolate stout.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown, with tan head. Thin aroma, notes of chocolate and malts. Taste of chocolate, malts, and coffee. This is a very drinkable brew, but isn’t as sweet or rich as some other double chocolates(Rogue). Still, this one merits a ’thumbs up’.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2016 I didn?t expect what I got from this bottle! Everything about this stout was very good. I seem to say this a lot...the only improvement I could ask for is a thicker mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Opaque brown-black. Soapy beige head. Aspirin dry cocoa aroma. Rich doughy chocolate flavor. Not as rich as a typical Imperial Stout.,but a little bigger than a straightforward Stout too. Sort of tame, uninspired. Decent enough.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Based on the ratings I was prepared to be amazed. On nitro tap at Pour House. First sip was thin with only a hint of chocolate. Second sop didn’t get any better. No body, no flavor, no sale.
