5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A: Pours black into the tulip with 1-finger's worth of medium brown head. Lace is medium to stiff. Stays on the top of the glass, but slowly withdraws.
S: Can I "capitalize" CHOCOLATE? Actually, it's nose is cocoa-smelling with a hint of coconut.
T: Taste is tremendous. I can describe the taste as very meaningful chocolate taste without being overly sweet. I've tasted some chocolate stouts that really make your brain think that you're drinking a Snickers. This one you can taste the malt and just a bit of the hops, along with the CHOCOLATE. Truly a dessert beer.
M: Feel is much lighter than the other chocolate stouts I've tried. It's a pleasure to drink. It doesn't overwhelm like it's competitors.
O: Overall, this is an excellent beer, really decent when the snow is flying and you're all dressed up in flannel and bunny slippers.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The scent is a little off, sort of funky and no chocolate. Thick dark in color. Nice chocolate flavor, but a bit too much like milk chocolate as opposed to dark, with the aftertaste of a cheaper chocolate bar

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a very, very dark brown (nearly black) color with red highlights and with a medium tan head that fades somewhat slowly. The aroma blends milk chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of roasted malts, and it’s so decadent. The flavor is roughly equivalent to a mix of dark and milk chocolate, making it mildly sweet, slightly bitter, and slightly umami. The aftertaste maintains the heavy chocolate flavor; unfortunately, it is a bit thin in texture and average in carbonation, but the medium body makes it very drinkable without it ever really overpowering the palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, pours black with light brownish head. Aroma has chocolate and cocoa and the taste is sweet but rather well balanced. I’m not a big fan of chocolate stouts but this one is definitely one of the best ones I’ve had.

550 ml bottle. Black, with a thick light tan head. Sweet aroma of chocolate and vanilla, some roasted malt. The flavour is sweet, with milk chocolate and vanilla, and some roasted notes in the finish. To my taste a bit too sugary and light-bodied, but still not bad.
