A - Cola body with ruby highlights. Light tan pours a quarter finger high and settles quickly into a loose halo with no lace.

S - Thick, dark chocolate liquor, pumpernickel, dark chocolate truffle, caramelized barley, and warm bourbon.

T - Wow. Creamy thick dark chocolate. Kahlua liquor, dark chocolate covered salted pretzel, warm oaky bourbon, vanilla, caramel, and raisins.

M - Medium-light body, but outstandingly creamy and silky smooth.

O - The chocolate character is incredible. A perfect beer for a fat snifter on a cold winter day.
