3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: 355mL brown bottle with no freshness date anywhere, served in a snifter.
Appearance: Pours a deep black color, no light shines through the glass. There’s a one finger,
tan colored head and some very good lacing that covers the whole glass.
Smell: Primary scents are of dark chocolate and roasted malt. There’s also some burnt bread notes and hint of molasses.
Taste: Dark chocolate is dominant with some roasted malt in the background and a black coffee flavor as well.
Mouthfeel: It’s very smooth and easy to drink with low carbonation. It feels a bit light bodied and refreshing even, which is unexpected for a stout.
Overall: A very well crafted beer that is very approachable. Popular belief is that non-beer drinkers should start out with lighter colored and less flavorful brews. This beer shatters that stereotype with its drinkability and sweet chocolatey taste. It is actually a best seller in a lot of places down here in Puerto Rico.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brown with a creamy cappuccino head that unfortunately dissipates quickly. Chocolate dominates the bouquet and punches you in the face when you take that first sip. Like a McDonald's chocolate thickshake, this is one to savour. Long lingering chocolate mousse finish. Sensational.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Congress, Longton. Pours black brown with a tan head. Very chocolatey which shouldn’t a criticism in a chocolate stout but it is quite overpowering to me. Decent enough.

Blackish ruby color with thin fine pored beige foam. The smell is absolutely incredible. Creamy milk chocolate with a hint of liquor. Not too heavy, almost a bit watery. Very creamy, foamy chocolate taste. Smooth mouth feeling. Very nice beer.

I’ve fallen in love with this brew!! Just another example of Sam Smith excellence. From the look, aroma, mouthfeel, and taste...just extraordinary. If you’re a lover of chocolate, vanilla, and beer....you’re gonna love this! Pairs well with a cigar too.
