Great beer. Nice and chocolaty, but not as malty as a lot of stouts (not really a bad thing). Could use a bit more hops. This is a stout you could actually drink TWO of.

The color of dark chocolate with a large tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and slight hops. Strong chocolate flavor backed by roasted malt and some hop flavor and bitterness. Quite malty. Full body. Tasty, although I donít think I could drink more than a half pint or so.

This is one that I tried really hard to like given itís rather high ranking. I donít know if I got hold of a bad one or not but this was pretty undrinkable but didnít taste "spoiled." Chocolate was overpowered by way bitter hops. Iíll give this one another try when the shock wears off. WOW!

Chocolate covers up the taste, really sweet, like they dumped Hersheyís syrup in it. That is not a bad thing though:)
