A: Starts out looking like muddy water when there is little in the glass, but as it fills the glass it transitions to a dark dark brown to black color, poured heavy and left a small bubbly chocolate colored head, leaves no lacing at all, the look of this beer is screaming desert!
S: Instantly from the pour your nose is filled with the sweet aroma of finely crafted milk chocolate! It is then followed with more sweet milk chocolate, slight hints of dark chocolate, sweet sweet vanilla, and very light hints of caramel. Every once in awhile you get slight hints of the oak barrel, the smell of the beer transitions in said order, and as it transitions each flavor slightly mixes giving you a plethora of wonderful aromas. This will be the best smelling beer I have had for awhile and it is going to take serious competition to knock this one down!
T: This beer takes you on a journey! Initial flavor is that finely crafted milk chocolate, which ever so slowly transitions, but mixes 50/50 with the dark chocolate, this wonderful 50/50 combo then begins to blend with vanilla which brings back and ever so slight sweetness back again, and then finishes with a total mix of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and the slightest hint of alcohol presence. Sweetness isn't overpowering, bitterness isn't too much, the complexity is immense and all the flavors are spot on! The flavors become even better as the beer warms, and the little alcohol presence is no more. I can't even fathom how good this beer tastes right now.
M: Medium bodied but feels extremely light. Incredibly creamy feel to it which is fantastic and compliments the flavors of this beer even more. The creaminess to the beer makes it incredibly smooth. It has a slightly sticky feel to it as chocolate does, but it doesn't have the mess (unless you spill). This beer finishes incredibly well, leaving the slightest hint of flavors behind, but damn does this make you want even more of this beer!
O: Well done Caldera! Well Done! Truly the greatest trophy to honor the passing of a dear friend! Mogli is definitely resting in peace, and I will be to when my time comes (won't be for awhile, but still) after having the chance to enjoy this beer!

Big thanks to a buddy of mine,
Pours black as night w/ dark cocoa ring head. I can get whips of dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and oak, it tastes, wow wow, just like it smell w/ a hint of tobacco and chocolate sweetness which LEDs up to super nice dry finish.... Wow, I love this beer, can't wait to get my hand on some more!
