Picked up a 12oz bottle for ~$5 to my surprise. Glad to try another on the top 100 list. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A- Pours a thick dark brown from bottle. A thick mocha head forms and fades to leave a light layer of foam and a ring along the edge. Sits very dark in glass, almost black.
S- Lots of a thick dark chocolate cake aroma, some roasted and burnt dark malt. Some creamy coffee and caramel smell. The chocolate cake aroma is really nice.
T- Chocolate, mellow coffee grounds, some soft oaky notes, light warming alcohol & roasty dark malt. The flavors blend together really well. In balance.
M- Full bodied and flavor forward. Warms on throat a little. Very smooth and mellow. Flavors are medium strength and hold on palate well before slowly fading. Wet through sip. Could be a tad bigger, but nice to have a lighter bodied IS.
O- A very good IS. Quite easy to drink and enjoyable to sip on. Not overly heavy or overpowering. Would like to try on tap if ever available. Sum is better then the parts on this one. Very well done in all aspects.

A thick black pour into my tulip glass, minimal head and a bit of sloppy lacing left behind. The smell is coffee up front with hints of cocoa and vanilla.
The flavor is a dark roasted coffee, sweet milk chocolate makes it tastes like a latte.. Hints of vanilla and oak are present but that dark roasted malt bill is unbelievably tasty. Medium to full body with low to medium carbonation.
This is a fantastic beer and I'll be pick up some more when I see some! Been wanting to try it for a while and finally found it in NYC - glad It was as good (actually better) as I expected.
