There's no seeing through this thing! Amazing range of dark colors flowing through the head. Thick lacing! Very dramatic appearance.
Smells..chocolate, sugar, caramelized sugar- almost like a smore. Some vanilla bean in there, as well.
Very sweet on top of the tongue with lots of chocolate, but very bitter under the tongue. Somewhat unpleasant down there, had the tendency to keep it on top of the tongue for the bottle.
Definitely a dessert beer. Extremely flavorful but I could see how this could be a little too much at times. Share a bottle, or have a full bottle if you're feeling decadent.

A-Pours nearly black.
S-Dark chocolate and sweet vanilla. Impressive vanilla actually. Roast and java. Bitter cocoa powder.
T-Bitter and sweet chocolate. Makes me think of milk and dark chocolate. Vanilla bean. Vanilla a bit softer here. Medium coffee notes. Finishes sweetly roasty.
M-Medium bodied. Velvety feel. Softer bubbles.
O-I enjoyed this one a bunch and the sample has prompted me to grab a bottle in the near future.
Serving type: on-tap

11.5-ounce bottle poured into a stout glass.
Appearance: Pours a near-black with a short tan head. Lacing minimal.
Aroma: This beer has an attractive set of aromas with black coffee, dark fruit, cocoa, vanilla, coffee beans and dark chocolate all represented.
Taste: This is a tasty, complex beer - the taste is close to the nose, with roasty black coffee accented by cocoa and vanilla the dominant theme.
Mouthfeel: It's also not as thick and sludgy as I had guessed. It's very drinkable.
Overall: A beer to seek out. The complex flavor makes this a unique stout - it's full of flavor, and very distinct. A great beer to dip, savor, and enjoy.
