This beer is insanely good.
A: Pours an atramentous shade of midnight ('sup Gus), moderate head. I heard about the smells of this one so I poured it in an oversized wine glass to get more out of the nose, but it spread the head out too much, now just a collar.

S: How good is this! Big smell of chocolate, probably the best smelling chocolate I've ever come across. Heavy notes of roasting cocoa beans. Amazing, wonderful, lovely, seductive chocolate notes. Hints of coffee and malt round out the smells to absolute perfection. I haven't had an olfactory delight like this in years. I really have to pull myself away from the glass to take a sip.

T: More of that lovely chocolate cascades all around my mouth, inviting, caressing. Dark malts peek through followed by a big hit of hoppy bitterness. Amazing balance of flavors, everything is just right and in just the right levels. Have you ever melted a piece of Toblerone in some strong coffee? I had a drink like that in a department store in the United Arab Emirates, this beer is bringing back memories of that experience. Finish just lingers and lingers, never ending merging of chocolate sweetness and dark coffee bitterness.

M: Does the pleasure never end? This beer is very big in body, chewy and silky, rich and creamy. Carbonation level feels lower than it is, the bubbles feel like they are being buffered by the beer. Alcohol is very well masked.

D&N: I think if I ever have this on cask, I may drop dead of the sheer pleasure. I'm trying very hard to fight giving this one fives across the board, I can picture this one on cask and it haunts me. The brewers at Rogue have come up with a true masterpiece. One of the finest beers I've ever had the pleasure of tasting. This isn't beer, this is pure indulgence in liquid form. Buy this beer if you see it. Buy three. It's that good.
