Served on tap in a 10 oz snifter
Appearance –Served a black brew with a small tan head. The head fades fast to a thin film leaving a great level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is rich and strong. It is heavy of a sweet mild chocolate smell. Mixed with these aromas are lighter notes of a vanilla and light caramel smell. Overall, big and delicious.
Taste – The flavor starts out of a smooth semi-sweet chocolate flavor mixed with a roasted malt taste. Vanilla soon comes to the tongue and along with it some sweeter and more sugary flavors of caramel and molasses. While it comes to the tongue, the sweetness soon dwindles some as more roasted malt and a bitter chocolate flavor then come to the tongue. While not detected in the slightest in the nose, at the very end a light alcohol flavor comes to the tongue and leaves a very nice bitter chocolate booze flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the medium to more creamy side with a carbonation level that was rather average. It was an alright mouthfeel, although more creaminess and a bit less carbonation would have likely better suited the chocolate, roast and alcohol flavors of the brew.
Overall – It is a rather tasty brew and the name is very appropriate. It begins with sweeter chocolate and then turns more to a bitter chocolate, with big dose of chocolate in the nose. It is tasty and well worth a try.
