look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A: [4.00] Slick black looking liquid with an impressive 2 1/2 finger head. The head is tan and creamy looking with tiny, dense bubbles. The bottle lists the ABV (9%) but there is no date.

S: [4.25] The nose is chocolate with more chocolate.

T: [4.25] The taste is milk chocolate up front then after some time it is bitter-sweet chocolate at the back. There is a smokey element to the taste also. There are also some hints of dark fruits that become more prominent as it warms.

M: [3.00] Tangy on the tongue (not as smooth as I expected). There is dry sense to the finish.

O: [4.00] Very night flavor profile with chocolate and smoke. The 9% ABV is well hidden. The mouthfeel was the only thing that wasn't in the great range is is a little more carbonated and prickly than I expected. Overall this is a really good beer. Well crafted and nice to sip on.
