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.
