A: Coffee colored with an off white foam head. It has a nice lacing as well.

S: Subtle vanilla with notes of dark chocolate and coffee.

T: Lots of Dark Chocolate, some coffee, and subtle notes of vanilla.

M: medium-low carbonation. It also has a nice rich, creamy silkiness.

O: Very good. I have been waiting to try this for awhile and I definitely wasn't disappointed. Its aroma leads you to believe there will be a lot of rich vanilla, but the opposite is true. You actually end up getting some nice subtle vanilla with lots of rich dark chocolate. I was very impressed, this was definitely a great beer.

Pours a pitch black with a 2 inch chocolate milk colored head that lasts. Good rings of lace on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of bitter cocoa powder, coffee grounds after the coffee has been brewed, and raw vanilla beans. I keep sniffing this beer over and over - it smells so damn good. Taste is of dark chocolate syrup, bitter coffee, vanilla extract, and an earthy mineral taste. Only slight bitterness on the palate after each sip. Absolutely amazing. Beer is thick and creamy in the mouth. A bit of alcohol warming in the throat. Overall, this is a very tasty hard to find beer. There is a distinct smell and taste of Hershey's chocolate syrup in this beer that makes me very happy. I am glad I found a bottle to enjoy. Highly recommended if you can get your hands on one.
