Scarily easy to drink. Great flavor of Belgian chocolate. Silky oily mouthfeel, almost a porter. After the chocolate the malt backbone emerges, with a long bitter hoppy finish. Bonus points for pulling this off at 6%. One of most pleasant surprises of Philadelphia Beer Week.

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.

Tap at Dock st. Dark color with dark tan head. Belgian yeast smell. Unique beer with an initial Belgian yeast taste accompanied by a slight sweetness that is soon followed by a stout bitterness that takes over. Nice beer, the alcohol content was not noticeable.

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.

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.
