Hook Norton Double Stout and Blackberries

Flavius: I think I need a Blackberry.
Meterman: Why, no one desires to communicate with you.
F: It will help me stay connected to the wired world.
M:Most of us hope you will sever your ties completely.
F: I see all these people looking at their blackberries being important. I feel like I'm missing out.
M: It's a false illusion. Most of them are following RSS feeds about Jon and Kate plus 8 gossip.

Hook Norton Double Stout

Ratebeer 3.51 86th percentile
Beer Advocate B+
Taste +4

The nose smells like blackness; bitter hot chocolate, nuts mixed with malt sweetness. The taste is surprisingly smooth and washes your mouth out with a dry chocolate bitterness. It is similar to a 75% cocoa mass mouth wash with lots of malt.

Aftertaste +2

This brew will not go away. Your palate is blessed with an alcohol and hop tingle that leaves to reveal an everlasting chocolate bittersweet residue.
Alcohol Content -1 4.8%

A lot of stouts tend to be a little low on the alcohol content.

Value +1

This is stellar chocolate stout, almost better than Young's. I would get it again.

Ingame Enhancement 0

Played it old school today with CSS. I don't play enough so I got owned; at least I didn't make a fool of myself.

Overall 6/10

A good chocolate stout; enough said.
