The beer pours a nice creamy brown tan head that takes a while to dissolve. The beer itself is a very dark brown that borders on black and is opaque. The beer smell has coconut notes, toffee, a bit of roasted malts, vanilla, and a bit of oak. The beer taste is more roasted than the smell. The beer taste has stronger dark chocolate and vanilla notes that are more dominate. A little alcohol note is present and makes the beer even sweeter. The notes found in the smell do not seem to be very present. The mouthfeel is heavy bodied and very smooth with some carbonation. The beer also has a little burn that lingers a bit in the back of the throat. Overall, a very good beer and worth seeking. If I find this again, I definitely plan on picking it up.
