4.3/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Glass: Over sized wine glass

Appearance: Motor oil, completely opaque. Has a thick and creamy mocha colored head.

Smell: Vanilla, alcohol, peaty

Taste: Peaty, alcohol, vanilla, toffee, chocolate notes, slight hops flavor. The alcohol kind of overrides the bitterness and as a result it's really easy to miss the hops flavor in this. Very sweet, earthy, and roasty.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied. Slick texture with a dry finish.

Serving type: bottle

1-28-13 drinking bottle dated 7/30/12

A: pours pitch black and oily. Nice heard. About a fingers worth or tan head that slowly turns into a tan ring around the glass with decent lacing.

S: heavy on chocolate. some roasted malts. roasted coffee.

T: this is an amazing beer! The alcohol is hidden very well. Chocolate is very forward. Taste follows the nose. Roasted coffee present as well. DELICOIUS

M: smooth, creamy, oily. light/medium carbonation.

O: This is one of my favorite beers! Will definitely be buying again. I have a bottle from 4/12 that im sitting on to drink with my oak/chocoate/espersso yetis.

10 Month old bottle. Review from notes (1/26/13).

A: Pours black with a brown head. Big head with good retention and some lacing.

S: Smell is mainly semisweet chocolate. Slight roasted smell that reminds be of coffee. General sweetness.

T: Taste is big with sweet chocolate upfront. Roasted malt and coffee seem to be minimal. Very very sweet. Almost no bitterness to it.

M: Mouthfeel is thick, creamy, with low carbonation. Lingering quality and slightly sticky.

O: Overall I would say that this beer was not balanced at all. Sweet and tasty but one dimensional. None of the "bold hop character" as suggested by the label. I enjoyed it and would be willing to try a newer bottle.
