4.4/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a very thick, syrupy, viscous, opaque black liquid. A small creamy mocha with deep mahogany glints is to be spoken of. This looks heavy!
S: Nose of chocolate cake, brownie, thick milk chocolate, very sweet, with some strawberry candy sweetness, ripe cherry, black forest cake, the whole thing being wrapped in a pregnant vanilla sweetness. This smells like calorie. But a pure one!
T: The taste is also mainly focused on chocolate flavors, heavy on the palate, overpowering, very sweet with notes of soaked fruits and dark fruits (prune mainly), over a malty, biscuity backbone. Of course the vanilla wrapping up the palate can be found again, oddly, the coffee favors are quite faint. The finish however is quite dry and bitter on bittersweet chocolate (and a little bit of coffee there), which helps cutting the overall sweetness.
M: The palate is very thick, smooth and velvety, also sticky. The alcohol and the sugar are being felt. This is not a thirst quenching beer (!) but it can be drunk quite easily thanks to the dryness on the finish.
O: This is a beer for the gourmands, perfectly shaped for the dessert. Obviously, the is not recommended for the diabetes. Otherwise, this is excellent.
