Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Had this with Wizzy and ZB, so the company might have made it better than it may have been. Dark, with an uneven head, which was weird. Verry cocoa and chocolatey. Not overly filling, which is nice for a stout.

Roasty, acidic aroma. Full toasty, roasty palate. Simple flavour profile, light bitterness. Maybe some chocolate notes.

Black with a medium lasting tan head. Aroma of some coffee and chocolate. Lots of hops in the nose, which carries to the flavour where it starts bitter and thinner and continues to a bitter ending. Where’s the Chocolate Lab? One of the most popular labs out there.

On tap at the Lucky Lab public house. Pours dark, not completely black, but a bit red, with a small light tan head. Very roasty sweet chocolate aroma. Taste is creamy and smooth, chocolate up front with coffee in the finish. This brew finishes with a big bitterness with trailing mocha flavors.

Tap. Nice stout. Very deep brown with red hues when backlit. Tan head lingers and leaves wonderful lacing. Very roasted aroma giving off coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel is smooth, full bodied. Very generous amounts of hops.

Thick cream colored head. Lots of chocolate and coffee aromas. A bit on the thin side, but nowhere near poor. Semi-sweet with a roasted malt finish. Good looking, good tastin.
