Out of a bottle into my tulip.

A – Dark as night. Half finger of light brown head that settles and stayed around and left a nice lacing down the glass.
S – Nice chocolate smell. Vanilla, roasted nuts and caramel.
T – Woo. This is good. Nice chocolate and vanilla to start. Sweet whipped cream, almost a marshmallow like flavor. Touch of roasted malts, toffee and coffee. Don’t get a great deal of oakiness but who cares. Manages to be sweet but not cloyingly so. Perfect touch of bitterness to finish. Amazing.
M – Medium to light bodied with ample carbonation. Creamy on the palate.
O – Catapulted to one of my favorites easily. Love the creamy, chocolaty flavors. If you can..get one. You wont be sorry.

22oz bottle poured into Snifter

A: Brackish looking not quit coal black hints of color around the edges of the glass wasn't much head but I'm a light pourer. Head was a very light tan

S: smells like a tootsie roll, chocolate lots of it, hints of oak like being at a winery where you get that oak aroma without the wine.

T: very chocolatey, tastes similar to a tootsie roll I'm getting a lingering almost acidic taste that might be a coffee taste near the end but very light. As the beer warms I might get a smidgen of vanilla

M: Medium bodied finishes somewhat dry for the sweetness

O: it's pretty good reminds me of a not as sweet Southern Tier Choklat and definitely Tootsie Rolls. if straight up chocolate is your thing you will love this. It's definitely a try in my book but I wouldn't hunt for this, but if you see it give it a whirl.
