Imagine the thickest, creamiest, most chocolatey hot chocolate you can. Now imagine it cold, and add hops and alcohol. If that sounds great, then you will love today’s review.

Siren Noire is an Imperial Chocolate Stout by the Heavy Seas Brewery in Baltimore, MD. I like pirates and (as you saw with the Hobgoblin review) fantasy creatures, so this beer is a definite win.

Siren NoireJust look at the gorgeous head and beautiful color on that! The first thing you notice is the aroma of the beer: pure, dark, chocolate. Once you taste it, then the chocolate hits you even more, and there’s a little hint of coffee as well. The after taste is reminiscent of root beer, which even with all the chocolate isn’t as weird as it might sound. It’s actually quite good.

Though this is an Imperial stout, it’s not as heavy as the typical beer in this category, which could be good or bad. Personally, I liked it even in spite of that.

Good luck finding this great beer though–it’s part of the Mutiny Fleet which had an extremely limited release. If you see it at your local bar, though, definitely give it a try!
