Bubbles creamy thick,
The darkness nearly complete,
Deep, smoky chocolate

A: (3/3) Clear but incredibly dark brown, almost black with thin foamy head
S: (9/12) Lightly sour woody smell with notes of chocolate and dark malt
T: (17/20) Delightfully woody chocolate with sweet
M: (5/5) Bubbly and creamy, but dry throughout
O: (8/10) Great dark bottle-conditioned beer. Surprisingly smooth at 10% and the alcohol is barely noticeable beneath the wood and chocolate.
42/50

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Look- A very surprising three and a half fingers of off white head comprised of huge bubbles on the pour, excellent retention and massive lacing on the glass. color is a brown that is near black with no light shining through.
Smell-rich and sweet. Dates, figs, honey. looked for booze and found none.
Taste-like the smell, hearty fruity notes upfront. the dates and figs are complimented by malty, grainy notes reminiscent of graham crackers. no booze in the taste either.
feel- smooth and very creamy, very little bubbles but the thick foam lingers on the tongue.
Overall- a delicious beer, drinks dangerously smooth. tasty, complex, and satisfying but not overwhelming in any sense.
