Served in a snifter
This pours a sultry black body with a nice rich caramel foam. The nose brings molasses and a rich cocoa. There is still some booze hanging around in the background which I imagine creates some of the heat that appears in the taste. Other aspects of the taste include dark caramels, slight molasses, and rich dark cocoa powder. This has velvety smooth flow, but there is a harshness that if removed would make this amazing. Overall this is a very good beer but it needs more time. I must say I enjoy it.
