No more than a hint of chocolate, but this is a drinkable stout more than a dessert beer. Very nice mouthfeel, smooth and silky. Rich aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours black with a creamy tan head. Nose is chocolatey and milky with a smooth oatmeal graininess. Lightly sweet. Taste brings the chocolate and medium roasted dark malt, lightly chalky with some milkiness and a long bitter finish. Smooth and silky body with medium heft. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours very dark with decent brown head that fades quickly and not much lacing. Aroma is sweet lactose that is pretty restrained overall and has only a hint of roast to it. Taste is much more sweet than stout - which is fine. Then, a little bit of dark malts and just another hint of roast. Not really any coffee. Palate is noticeably carbonated with a pretty thin, hollow, watery finish - the beer’s only obvious flaw. Still, if this is truly 8%, it’s masked well, and goes down easy.

Smokey, full-bodied and nutty. The perfect winter beer to warm up to, I think...........
