(bottled) Great appearance, opaque black, thick rich creamy head. Rich sweet burnt chocolate, lightly fruity, sweet malty aroma. Flavour is malty, obvious chocolatey flavour(although not as prominent as i expected), surprisingly dry, coffeeish bitterness.

Aroma is malty cocoa butter with a tinniness probably attributable more to the nitrous than the metal can. Peach-white head with lighter bubbles in the center; typical nitrocan underbody lacing and heavy head lacing. Initially seems like a dessert beer in that the cocoa butter and sugar are quite noticeable in the flavor (though not overwhelming). Also present is a high level of grainy hoppiness and a surprising level of pale malt. Finish is pleasant dark chocolate "unsweetened" by a corresponding hoppiness. Rated based on the nitrous can -- could revise things upwards a few points on draught.

Tap. Beautiful pour. Deep color with long-lasting head. Very creamy and lightly carbonated. A good drinking stout, though tough to compare to bigger stouts. Finishes lightly bitter and roasty.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured black with a large, frothy light tan head, lookin good...not so surprisingly, aroma of chocolate. The taste is good but somewhat hurt by the watery mouthfeel. The chocolate presence is just right, and a mild hop bitterness to compliment it, but lacking in body for me to be impresed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours deep black with just a bit of red glow around the edges when held up to the light. Nice layer of creamy tan head. Aromas of perked coffee, butter, mild cocoa and sweet cream. Palate is smooth, but a bit on the thin side. Roast and coffee flavors with some burnt toast. A little sour. Chocolate is very subtle up front, but has a growing presense. Some chalky bitterness in the finish. A pleasant but unexceptional stout. What is there is quite good--but there isn’t enough of it to be that interesting.

Tasted from 500mL bottle. Simply beautiful. Despite the double chocolate monniker chocolatey flavors are well integrated and don’t overpower. Deep black color. Slight roasty flavors initially followed by a light bitterness from dark chocolate. Incredibly smooth, thick mouthfeel. Yummy.

Wow, this was a suprisingly smooth beer. There were no harsh flavors at all, and there was a subtle aroma of chocolate. This is a genuinely good beer, and I recommend trying it if you have the chance.
