I had heard an awful lot about this beer, and as a result I was concerned that it would not live up to the hype. In the end it was just about what I had expected.
It poured like liquid mud! Tan head. The chocolate character did two things for me. Firstly it took away the bitterness of the stout and secondly it made the aftertaste somewhat dry.
Given that stouts are not my favorite style, I enjoyed it, but not as much as some others seem to have. Real stout lovers would certainly write better reviews.
