2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is more of a roasted malt and not much of a chocolate malt. Flavor has more of the chocolate but not really anything over the top. After the swallow a char malt is left on the tongue. This was a big meh for me. There was potential here but nothing really stood out.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours black with a small tan head, and the aroma is predominantly Hersey’s chocolate syrup, which breaks down into caramel and chocolate malts and vanilla. The taste has a slight malt bitterness, slight sweetness, and a mild umami flavor, and the malt bitterness intensifies through the finish; the mouthfeel doesn’t match what the aroma suggests (and, therefore, causes the overall impression of this beer to fall somewhat flat) due to the thin texture, medium-light body, and soft carbonation.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/19/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, caramel, toast, dark bread, herbal, light char, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/roasted malt, cocoa, and light earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, herbal, light char, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Light earthy herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, coffee, toast, dark bread, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt , chocolate, and moderate herbal hop flavors; with decent complexity and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, creamy, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid chocolate stout. Good balance and robustness of dark/roasted malt, chocolate, and herbal hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Balanced and chocolatey stout, but light bodied, a little sweet, a little iced coffee. Good balance, another example of why the Great Lakes region is blowing up the stout scene right now.
