Tap at armsby abbey.
Very long slow pour yields a big thick frothy dark head that fades as slow as the ten minute pour and leaves a bit of messy lacing. The beer is pitch black thick and nice legs.
Nose is awesome, loaded with chocolate, Belgian choc, some dark Belgian malts, light roast, vanilla, and fluffy choc nougat, bit of cocoa nibs, touch of choc marshmallow.
Taste is very thick, luscious and creamy, smooth and velvety, some chewy dark Belgian malts, lots of chocolate, Belgian choc, bit of bakers choc, fluffy nougat and marshmallow like taste, hints of vanilla, caramel, oak, and some light bitterness thanks to the roast and bit of pillowy earthy hops. Light sweetness and hints of dark fruits fade to a slightly drier finish with lingering chocolate, creamy hot cocoa, bit of dark malts, and the bitterness kicks up a notch on the finish.
Mouth is rich, luscious, smooth and creamy, velvety, and pretty thick with decent carb.
Drink is surprisingly decent for being 12%, creamy and smooth, not much for a boozy feel, you just WANT to drink it slow.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle from the local shop popped right after an infected BD3: Black Mes. This one is another gusher. Pours pitch black with a small mocha colored head into my mini snifter. A somewhat metallic aroma with cardboard, roasty chocolate, and, yes, more sour apple as in the Black Mes. F this. Flavor is sour apple cardboard with no trace of coffee, and maybe just a hint of chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with lowish carbonation but on the thinner side relative to what was expected. This seems both infected with bacteria and a good bit oxidized. Complete garbage. Sad face.
