Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip. Pours with a minimal tan head. Light roasted malt and cocoa powder aroma. Brownish black appearance. Taste is very lightly sweet with light notes of coffee and cocoa. Medium bodied with a slightly creamy texture and average carbonation. Slightly bitter finish. Overall very drinkable good beer. Nothing earth shattering. Leaves a bit to be desired in terms of chocolate, considering it is supposed to be a chocolate stout.

Growler from GAT Beer. Poured opaque black with a 1-finger dark tan head that was gone fairly quickly. Aroma has notes of chocolate and cocoa powder. Body is medium-to-full, with a lightly oily finish. Flavor has a touch of citrus, giving way to chocolate. Mild burnt note in the finish.

Draft at railroad. Pours pitch black with minimal head. The aroma has a ton of flaked milk chocolate. The taste has a big roasty note with a light bitter chocolate.

Pours dark brown with a thick tan head...good lacing and retention. Aroma has lots of dark chocolate...on the sweeter side...some firm roastiness. Flavor follows suit...nice dark chocolate, good roastiness, and a hint of dark fruit...very faint tobacco. mouthfeel is m edium/full and creamy with a dark chocolate/roasty/dark fruit finish that lingers to roasty bitterness.

On tap at The Beer Store in Southampton, PA. Not as blown away by this as I was with their Rye IPA, but this is still a fairly enjoyable chocolate stout.

Dark brown-black body, moderate sized khaki head, creamy lacing. Nose is chocolate with light caramel and brown sugar. Flavor is mostly a soft bittersweet chocolate with light contributions of caramel and roast. Medium bodied, creamy, soft carbonation. Dock Street’s take on Young Double Chocolate. A nice rendition.

Black pour thin off white beige head, thin and watery mouthfeel ..... Taste is of cocoa/bitter dark chocolate, smoke, little chalky and roasted malts leading to a bitter hop that lingering into a dry bitter finish .... aroma is of cocoa, roasted malts and light smoke .... thin but the abv is hidden well .... like a smoked porter more than a stout

Deep black, opaque, even at the edges, just a glimmer of light comes through at the edges... No head, poured to the rim, but little retention, or livelyness when i swirled later on.. Loads of caramel in the aroma, has a distinct sweetness over a slightly roast very mildly chocolaty aroma... kinda lively mouthfeel, some lightly bitter chocolate flavors, very light alcohol, some subtle dark fruits, slightly milky... Lots of chocolate in the flavor...
