Going a bit outside of my comfort zone with this one; not exactly my style.
Color is deep rich brown/black with a nice 4 finger head of dark khaki, off brown. No light getting through.
Nose is definitely dark chocolate and coder up front with a slight underlying dark fruitiness. Definitely some molasses and earth notes. Really nice smelling stuff.
Big hit of dark bitter cacao up front supported by bitter earthy hops then accentuated by a nice creamy and milky mouthfeel. There's still a nice hint if fruity esters and a nutty quality. Chocolate dominates as it finished quite dry.
Overall a really nice beer. It's not as heavy as I thought and the drinkability was really nice.
