Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a 24 oz beer mug.
A - Pours absolutely pitch black with a dark brown head that dissipates into the familiar foam collar, leaving tendrils of tan lacing as it's consumed.
S - Mmmm...chocolate. A thick, sweet aroma of cocoa liquor wafts up through my nostrils, accompanied by some coffee and toffee notes. But make no mistake; chocolate is king in this brew.
T - Chocolate, chocolate...and more chocolate. Once again, coffee and a bit of sweet milky toffee does show up, but chocolate is the star.
M - Velvety smooth with just the right amount of carbonation. The bitterness is also subdued and adds to the depth of flavor.
D - That 6% ABV and a slight bitter aftertaste prevent absolute perfection in terms of sessioning, but if you're looking for something to relax and get buzzed on after a long day, this will hit the spot.
Overall - If you're an alcoholic and a chocoholic, beware this beer, as you will get hopelessly addicted. For the rest of us who just love our beer and our chocolate, buy some of this right now; you'll be glad you did as you're sitting there in a chocolate/alcohol haze.

4.2/5 rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Very dark brown, opaque. At the very edge of the glass a slight brown/ruby color can be seen. Soft, creamy looking head that dissipates nearly entirely, but clings to the edge of the glass. Left little to no lacing on my glass.
Thick, and heavy with the smell of chocolate. Not a coco smell, but the smell of chocolate syrup. No hop aroma at all.
Light, roasted barley with a slight crispness. Flavor is clean and free of esters. The chocolate flavor is not as overwhelming as the aroma would suggest. Carbonation is on the smoother side, pleasant, and not too abrasive. Has a smooth, creamy finish, and the roasted chocolaty flavors finish well with a pleasant slightly bitter aftertaste. Could have slightly more body in the flavor and mouthfeel, and perhaps just a hint of acidity or sourness to balance the bittersweet chocolate flavor.
Overall Style 4.375/5
