4.15/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz. capped bottle (Bottled On: FEB 15 2012) into a snifter glass.
A strong pour yields a 1 1/2-finger deep mocha-colored head that slowly fades after a few minutes to a thin dusting and thick foam ring. The body is a nearly black dark brown that permits no passage of light. Thick lacing can be seen coating the glass throughout consumption but fails to cling to the glass for long.
Deep, dark, roasty, complex, and welcoming. Aromas of dark coffee, burnt coffee beans, and dark chocolate carry slight notes of alcohol and dark fruits (raisins and black cherries?).
Flavors of milk chocolate and dark chocolate caress the taste buds along with notes of dark fruit and vanilla. Swallowing unleashes flavors of black coffee, burnt coffee beans, and espresso. A bit of bittering hops become noticeable in the finish that combines well with the dark coffee flavors. Dark, bittersweet chocolate persists on the tongue as an aftertaste. A sharp alcohol warmth stings the back of the throat.
Full bodied with moderate carbonation, this beer is as smooth and creamy as melted butter. The thick body coats the mouth well but is kept well in control by the carbonation. It is slightly sticky but in a good way.
