Wonderful pour to give a rich, dark tan head. Although it didn't last long (due to the high alcohol), the head had a great combination of small and large bubbles. Really pretty beer.

In the aroma, I get rich, dark chocolate and roasty malts. The smell is very round and fresh, but not lighthearted. Some detectable alcohol. There may be some hints of dark fruits as well. Hope aroma is less evident.

The taste is unreal. There are huge, round chocolate and roasted malts, with the perfect balance of hop bitterness. After the swallow is a nice alcoholic burn.

The mouthfeel is extremely creamy. Drinking this beer is not unlike eating a piece of bread.

Incredible beer, a must try.
