4.63/5 rDev +8.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Black with a very large brown head. Great retention, thick and sticky lacing. Small bubbles of carbonation race to the top of the glass in an incessant stream.
S: Coffee grounds, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, moist chocolate cake, a touch of earthiness, and some mild citric hops.
T: Roasted malt taste assaults the palate. Lots of chocolate: dark chocolate, cocoa powder, and devil's food cake. Bitter coffee surfaces momentarily. Faint hints of plum. Quick citric hop bite comes to the forefront, but recedes as quickly as it hit. Vanilla comes out a bit as the beer warms. Finish is semi-dry and never-ending and showcases rich malt tastes of chocolate cake and some woody/smokey notes.
M: Thick, creamy, and smooth. Crisp carbonation and a mild warming alcohol sensation are also apparent. Very slightly astringent.
D: On the bigger side of the style, but oh-so drinkable.
Notes: A shining example of the style. Delicious and very technically sound, from what I can tell. The label says it all: Dark, rich, and sexy. An excellent beer.
