3.48/5  rDev -17.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a sam adams perfect pint glass. Bottled on date of 2/18/2011

A- Pours a very dark brown. A dense 1/4'' of brown mocha head forms before leaving a nice ring and some filmy foam. Sits black in glass.

S- Chocolate notes here, both a slight sharp bittersweet and a rich smooth sweetness. A touch of heavily roasted coffee bean. On the lighter side of aroma for a >9% abv RIS.

T- Light sweet chocolate that fades to a semi-dense burnt coffee bitterness. Even after drinking coffee all day, this is some decent bitterness. No alc comes through in taste. Lingering taste is as if I just ate some bittersweet chocolate for cooking. Seems rather basic in flavor profile, but is good. Choc sweetness begins to come through as warms, but doesn't completely rise above. Faint sourdough crust comes through at the very end and finish.

M- Med-big in the body. The burnt bitterness lingers for a while. Some good full palate feel that gives it some chewiness upfront. Slightly on the rough side for the palate.

O- A good RIS overall. Nothing really stands out other then the intense bittersweet choc qualities. Solid, but many others have it beat. Maybe some age would help to intensify the subdued choc notes past the bittersweet domination. Quite easy to drink quickly considering the semi-rough bitterness.

12oz bottle into a snifter

dark black pour with a creamy brown head. smell of chocolate and roasty malts and quite in your face and big. real rich. taste of burnt bittersweet chocolate and a lot of roasty notes. very true to style and drinkable. body is almost full and carbonation is very on point. its definitely a great beer. recommended.
