4.3/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours opaque black and thick. Head is dark nutty brown. It is thick but settles fairly quick with nice lacing and a whispy veil.

Aroma: Smells like milk chocolate. Slight herbal note. Mostly chocolate and coffee notes.

Taste: Malty sweet but not overpowering. The chocolate is definitely the prevailing smell/taste/everything to this beer. A nice peppery spicy note from the hops refreshes and reminds you that its beer not some chocolate elixir. It makes me wonder if they achieve this through adding chocolate or perfectly balancing malts. There is a slight astringency that makes me feel they use Black malt in the grain bill. Overall its a killer taste

Mouthfeel: Carbonation seemed to be too high and forced I would love to see this on cask or nitro. Drying finish with the dark malts left an odd lingering characteristic.

Drinkability: This is very tasty and very drinkable. It won't be an everyday beer for most just based on the chocolaty taste. I wouldn't recommends it with desserts but I would recommend it as dessert or used in the dessert. I tried pairing this with some ice cream and found that with sweet things it loses its own sweetness and becomes far too bitter.

Perfect Recipe with any left over (if thats possible): Reduce in a pan by 3/4's. Add 1-2 tbsp of sugar (brown or white). Add 2 cups fresh cherries. Cook for 10-15 minutes until sauce picks up a pinkisk cherry hue. Serve over good vanilla ice cream. I made this the other day and my wife and friends loved it. They couldn't believe how strong the chocolate from the beer became.
