Appearance: The pour is dark chocolate with red hues. The light brown head starts off massive before rescinding to a thin layer covering more than half of the beer.

Smell: There are big roasted malt aromas in the nose, namely chocolate, coffee, as well as a touch of alcohol.

Taste: The taste fallows the nose to a tee. Roasted malts bring semi-sweet chocolate, coffee (a darkish, roast with low acidity like Sumatra), fruity hops in the background, and warming alcohol at finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, smooth, and creamy, yet somewhat sticky at the same time.

Drinkable: There's lots of alcohol and the flavor profile is intense, but this is much more quaffable than it has any right to be.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into pint glass

A - Poured a nice deep black with a caramel colored head with good retention and quite a bit of lacing.

S - Intense chocolate and coffee notes in the nose. Some minor scents of caramel and molasses.

T - I really enjoyed this beer. It burst of chocolate and roasted malts up front with a sweet feel and lingering bitterness as it goes down. Kept me sipping trying to put my finger on the taste.

M - Phenomenal all around. Full bodied, smooth and creamy.

D - It has a moderately high drinkability. The higher ABV is quite welcome on a cold winter day.
