Beer Review, Fort Collins Double Chocolate Stout

Fort Collins Double Chocolate Stout
Fort Collins, CO
8.10% ABV

Appearance: Black body with a slight brownish tinge, opaque, with a moderately-thick brown head. 4.0/5

Smell: Wow. Strong aromas of chocolate and bitter coffee, with a nice dry chocolate malt underneath. Slight hints of caramel. Very strong and unexpectedly aromatic. 4.5/5

Taste: A dry maltiness up front, bitter and dry with hops, with a coffee-tinged sweet aftertaste. It reminds me a lot of Rogue's Chocolate Stout, and coming from me that's high praise. The alcohol is well-hidden, and the flavors just pop right out. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, somewhat thick, proteins coat the tongue. 4.0/5

Drinkability: Dangerous considering the alcohol. Very enjoyable. Worth a try for anyone who's looking for a good impy stout. 4.0/5

Overall: 4.3/5
