I love stouts, but not ones heavy on the chocolate flavor. This is a very chocolatey beer, I don’t know what Samuel Smith’s did, but this was a delicious beer. Pours black, with a thick chocolate brwon head.

12 oz bottle from Hy-Vee Muscatine. Black appearance with a light brown head. Rich milk chocolate and cocoa aroma. Similar flavor, plenty of chocolate, but not overly sweet. Medium body, creamy and smooth. A bit one dimensional, but easy to drink, good for dessert.

I didn’t think Youngs Double Chocolate would have a rival, but this is it. Smooth as silk, perfect balance of roasted stout character and milk chocolate, neither overwhelms the other, and both are enjoyable until the end, which comes too soon.

Pure chocolate syrup. Smells really thick and syrupy, but it has a surprising light body. Chocolate sauce and vanilla taste, lightly roasted malts, kinda bright. Dessert and alcohol.

Pure bottled chocolate. Deep aroma and taste, but with an amazing balance in mouth. It takes the virtues of the beer and the chocolate. Extraordinary brew.

Aroma hits you with a big chocolate nose, and light roast. Has a fine tan head that stuck around shortly before fading. Taste was chocolate, light roast with balance towards sweet dark chocolate. Mouthfeel was med-full body with low to med carbonation. Excellent beer if you want a very chocolatey stout.
