BLACK - no light gets through this beer.

Smells like chocolate and maybe some of the alcohol

Tastes malty good with none of the burnt flavors

Syrupy. Coats the mouth real nice. Have to scrape it off.

I think one will do ya with this beer. VERY sweet and high alcohol.

I like it and would definitely buy this one again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours black with a very short brown head, leaves some lacing

Smell: Roasted barley, chocolate, coffee, earthy hops

Taste: Again, nice roasted barley up front, some coffee and chocolate, earthy hops, some dark fruits as well, lower bitterness than standard for the style

Mouthfeel: Full body, low carbonation, appropriate for the style

Overall: Excellent, but there are so many good brews in the style, its hard to justify the cost. A nice touch is the lower bitterness, makes it easier to drink, more desirable.

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

A: Poured into a snifter to pitch black with a barely there tan head that is quick to fade to a small collar around the glass
S: smells big and roasty with notes of coffee and chocolate
T: tastes of coffee, bitter dark chocolate, roast malt, and some cocoa powder. swallow is more chocolate and coffee with more roasted malt flavor
M: Full in the mouth with a nice smooth feel on the palate. carbonation is there but it isn't assertive. nice finish that isn't drying
O: Overall, this is a fantastic beer that drinks very well and has good flavors. I want to try this after a barrel treatment.
