look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Utterly black with a thick and dense tan head, which retains well. The lacing is thick and glass-coating.
Aroma: Deep notes of bitter chocolate utterly dominate the aroma. There are lesser toasted malt notes as well. The superb arom makes it tempting to serve this in a goblet, to retain as much of the aroma as possible.
Taste: Bitter chocolate and alcohol dominate the flavor profile from start to finish. Subtle fruit notes are present in the middle, offering a brief chocolate-covered fruit flavor. There is a lingering coffee-like bitterness towards the finish, which lingers well beyond the end of the taste.
Mouth feel: Quite smooth and full, a little soft carbonation on the tongue, dry at the finish.
Drinkability/note: Unwaveringly excellent, complex, and difficult to overrate, no less than superb.
Presentation: Packaged in a twenty-two ounce enameled brown glass poptop bomber; served in a standard pint tapglass.
Serving type: bottle
