Pours a dark black color that I've only seen in imperial stouts before. In fact, this might be even darker and more opaque than 99% of those, too. Pours easily and has a medium to average size brown head.
Smell is well...chocolate. Not the "kind of chocolate" flavor most dark beers have, but more of a baker's chocolate or of a nice european candy bar. I'd call it REAL chocolate, which I guess it contains.
Taste is very smooth and silky. It starts off tasting a little like an irish dry stout, but then the chocolate kicks in. Again, like the smell, this isn't a "chocolate-like" flavor but very much the real deal. At the same time, it's a darker chocolate flavor, which I really enjoy.
Mouthfeel's perfect. Thin enough to drink regardless of season, but still maintains a lot of flavor that would wash away if it were too thin.
I could drink several of these, although because of the flavor, it seems like some of the depth decreases a bit as you drink more. I found that chocolate overpowering the other flavors a little after about 1/2 the bottle.
Still - this is a GREAT beer. By far the best chocolate brew I've had, and the price is cheaper than most of the others, too.
