4.6/5  rDev +18.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a balloon glass.

Appearance: The beer is as black as dirty motor oil, with no hint of even the slightest hue of brown on the edges, at least until much later. A fine frothy, chunky mocha head slowly recedes to a rough sea of choppy foam film, before settling to a wisp with a tight mocha ring around the edge of the glass. Massive thick lacing coats the glass leaving what I call a world map pattern.

Aroma: The aroma of this beer is dark and rich. An immediate freshly baked oatmeal cookie greets me first, and there’s actually a really solid black licorice note in there as well.

Taste: The taste profile is just as rich as the aroma. The beer starts off with a deliciously dry yet hearty bittersweet chocolate chip note. Which reminds me of choc-chip oatmeal cookies ... And from there, the slightly alcoholic burn of the 9% greats the throat, but not before filling your taste buds up with dark roasted malts, hearty oats, and just a faint kiss of black licorice. The beer finishes with sharp, bitter hops, leaving a tangy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Super, super dry.

Overall: Geez, this was so good that half-way into it, I started to realize that this 9% brew means business. What an awesome, excellent dessert beer this would make. I drank it out of my favorite snifter, which seemed quite appropriate.

Serving type: bottle

4.58/5  rDev +18%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Pours freely, with a thick, lingering head. Reminiscent of a freshly pulled espresso. Not much lacing left behind.

Smell - All roast, with some sweet oatmeal character. Like Sam Smith but with a tiny whiff of hops.

Taste - Brassy and flagrant coffee, sweet cocoa and fluffy oatmeal cookie. A little booziness, but very well-balanced. I keep thinking Sam Smith, but obviously turned up to 11. Lingering finish recedes with a subtle bittersweetness.

Mouthfeel - Fairly light for such a big beer, but with a syrupy, sticky finish.

This is dessert beer at its finest. For my money Sam Smith is still king but this beer is Sam's brawnier big brother. My expectations for this were sky-high and it definitely measured up.
