Excellent taste with dark chocolate flavor blending perfectly with the vanilla. Very drinkable with silky mouth feel. Dark black appearance with strong, lingering tan head. Smell of chocolate and vanilla is dessert like. Paired with ribeye steak and jalapeño mash ended potatoes

Pouring a cellar temp bottle into a snifter. The beer pours a dark brown hue with large fluffy tan head of 4 cm even with an extremely gentle pour.
Leaves tightly packed dense latticework after each sip.
Aroma is deep roasted malt with an almost burnt quality to the nose. Cocoa powder comes through as well, with just a small sweet note of vanilla, but that is a little buried behind the roast and cocoa powder.
First sip reveals a velvety smooth body with gentle rolling texture, that gives just the faintest tingle as I swallow.
Flavor is roasted malt and some sweet cocoa with hints of vanilla on the finish, very similar flavor profile as the nose. A long lingering dark chocolate note at the end of each sip. The beer is very rich but isnt cloying. No hint of any booze from start to finish and not really any hops that I can detect anywhere.
A well crafted, rich not boozy interesting, yet not complex beer. I should have bought a second bottle.
