look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours pretty damn black with a nice finger of dense mocha colored head, retention is solid and the lacing is fantastic.

S - Tons of chocolate, mildly bitter dark chocolate, some roasty malts, minimal vanilla type sweetness, licorice.

T - Very nice. A great combination of being boozy but not overly boozy - and chocolatey. Initially a bit of a boozy medicine feel followed but a rich but bitter roasty chocolate flavor and licorice. Aftertaste is fairly pungent booze. Boozyness is a bit bitter, not sure what the hops schedule is like here but it could be relatively significant. After a couple sips the boozyness/bitterness really does kind of dominate, maybe too much so.

M - Mouthfeel is the highlight here, mediumish bodied and incredibly silky smooth, minimal carbonatoin. Really fantastic.

The beer comes in a dark brown/black color.

The aroma has licorice, roasted malt, earthy hops.

The flavor follows as a licorice bomb, but not in an offensive way. There's chocolate in the front, rich roasted malt, and then the back hits of hops and a bitter black chocolate.

At 12.5%, this beer has a medium plus mouthfeel and hides its alcohol well. It drinks more towards most imperial stouts at 9-10%. The beer absolutely disguises 2-3% ABV somehow.
