Thick, black beer with a dark brown to beige, two finger head. Lacing on the glass when the head sinks down to a thin, brown layer.

Nose: Chocolate cream, vanilla, ice cream, honey, toffee, brown sugar, nuts, hops, coffee and of course the special "Great Divide" smell! I JUST LOVE IT!

Mouth: Full, great, big, complex body with a very small amount of carbonation. Coffee, dark roasted malt, espresso, ash, caramel malt and a lot of dark chocolate!

This is a MUST HAVE. I love it. I’m glad I’ve saved a few in the beercellar :)

Thick, pitch black pour. Completely devoid of anything light. The head doesn't immediately form, but when it doesn, it's brown and creamy. Moderate retention, fluffy creamy bubbles, with a chocolate lace left in its wake.

Dark, roasty malt, expresso, smoky scent fill the nose. Subsequent is the wave of caramel and faint dark fruits that fill the nose. No hop presence, but you can smell the bitterness from the roasted grains.

It's all vague malts up front, but as the beers wonders toward the throat, the gentle chocolate flavor evolves. The raisin gives some balance as the bittersweet chocolate intensifies the flavors in the finish.

For some a big beer, it's very easy to drink. The oatmeal provides plenty of creamy smoothe texture so you don't get a grainy feel like its brothers. Sweetness collides with bitterness throughout before a warming bitterness lingers til the next sip starts. Full bodied, you can feel thick viscosity. No carbonation so the palate is left sticky with a syrupiness.

Overall, it's a hell of a beer and exceptionally drinkable. Not something you chug, you could easily nurse this for an hour or more...and love every sip. Would make a great nightcap or dessert beer.
