It seems to changing from week to week. It definitely has a chocolaty aroma, but more of a smokey/wood taste to it. It's not what I had expected, but it's pretty damn good.
Given that I didn't had the lactose until the secondary, it's not as much of a mouthful as expected.
Also, I think next time I brew and bottle this, I'll use less priming sugar. It was a bit more carbonated than I would have liked for a stout. Then again, I'm not exactly sure if a good way to carbonate a bottled stout.
