Thick creamy head to it’s oily core it’s a joy to drink. A nice burnt chocolate/coffee flavor greets the nose. Rich, oily mouthful like a chaw of chewing tobaccoo but such a nice tangy flavor. The beer finishes rich and malty with a wonderful mix of hoppy goodness.

This beer is Outstanding!! The only other beer that I enjoyed of this similarity so much was Mendocino's Winter Ale.

The smell is rich, taste also rich. High is chocolate and coffee and is hard to describe except it does look like liquid charcoal with terrific head retention and traces all the way down the glass. Huge alcohol, undetectable and comes on late. The only drawback is, and I don't like this at all, is it comes in 4 packs, which is the only reason I never buy Sam Smith's beer, although it is excellent as well.

Poured into a Pint glass from a bottle.

Smells a bit like chocolate cake and dark german bread.

Taste is malty, sweet, following by an awesome spicy bitterness. Nice creaminess toward the end.

The head is awesome. This brew looks pretty great.

The finish is very light, with just a mild cream and maybe a bit of bread.

This is just amazing, one of the best beers I have ever had.
