Initially I had rated this lower, but I had just had Southern Tier Choklat before this so not a fair comparison. Overall, this is an attractvie and flavourful stout. Very nice.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Enjoyed via a bottled from Outpost Co-op on Capital Drive in Milwaukee. Pours a deep brown-black with a large and clingy tan head. The aroma is a mocha latte. The taste is like an iced mocha; you get the coffee flavors, chocolate, cream and some caramel. The palate is silky smooth like drinking milk or cream. There is little to no boozy flavor less a warm burn on the back and side of the tongue. The finish is chocolate caramel. This is a new favorite, for sure.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black body with a tall dark tan head. Some spotty lacing. Aroma is chocolates and coffee with a light cocoa puffs. Flavor is chocolate with oats and subtle coffee. For once a brewer was able to make a beer either chocolate added and not have that gross oily component. Medium roast. Medium body that has no hint of 9%.

Bottle. Pours a black color with tan head. Black coffee, slight chocolate and malty sweet aroma. Interesting black coffee flavor. You don’t get the 9% alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Sister. Rather thick and strong in flavor. The chocolate is quite strong and fake, but not in a bad way actually. It’s like a good quality chocolate syrup. Some dick who seemed to be rolling spilled 2/3 my glass.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black in color with a tan head. Huge coffee aroma, coffee grounds, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. A little bit of toffee and caramel sweetness, earthy hops, and cocoa powder. Strong coffee flavor to the beer, though a bit more coffee grounds character than expected. Mild bitterness, dark chocolate, roasted malt, and a mild toffee sweetness.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep black color with a tall, very tall dense creamy head. Nose has a strong coffee, strong toasted malt - think opening a fresh sack of malt and mild chocolate finish. Flavor has a strong black coffee start, sweet chocolate middle to help mellow out the bitterness, strong toasted notes, some oatmeal sweetness at the end with a very light nutty finish. Oily feeling, perfect amount of carbonation to lend a creaminess to the brew, very smooth with not a hint of alcohol. Overall a very tasty brew. Perfect balance of coffee and chocolate. Sweetness from the chocolate is very nice. Very good brew.
