4.51/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

The beer pours a dark muddy brown, and sits in the glass as black with a very dirty white/tan head full of rocky bubbles that sit at about a quarter of a fingers’ width. In the light this beer has a dark murky body with a mahogany hue. The beer’s lacing is thin and slippery dry, leaving splotches of foam on the sides of the glass. On the nose, the beer smells of chocolate cocoa powder with a caramelly, milk chocolate smoothness to the smell. There is also a very faint tartness to the back of the smell as well as a touch of creamy coffee and roasted malt. On the tongue, the beer tastes sweetly rich and creamy with milk chocolate goodness. The taste begins with sweet and slightly tart chocolate covered raisins, though the fruit flavor is light. This opens into warm and rich milk chocolate flavors with touches of roast and sweet creamy caramel. The finish is long with the creamy chocolate and caramel and though the after taste is very light with roast malt and a watery feeling. On the mouth, the beer feels medium in body with a bit of a thicker finish. It is rich and creamy and velvety on the tongue. The mouth is left clean, coated with a slight sticky sweetness. Overall, this beer is delicious. This is the first chocolate beer I can comfortably say that they have nailed the chocolate flavor on. I’ve liked others. This beer perfects it. Creamy milk chocolate with some lovely subtleties and complexities. This beer is a must try.

3.94/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

550 mL poured to tulip

Pours black with a tidy tan head, lays down to a faint haze of bubbles

Smells of chocolate, dark malt and vanilla. Dissipates quickly

Taste is big on the chocolate, with a nice bourbon vanilla note. Sweet but not cloying.

Mouth feel is surprisingly light

Overall: great dessert beer when in a chocolate mood. A little more balance would be required to be a more regular drinker, but the spritely mouth feel makes an impression. Interesting and exotic.
