4.16/5  rDev +3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle poured into Oxbow tulip, thanks Josh (thebigredone)!

A- Pours an opaque motor oil black, just a thin light mocha head forms that recedes to a perfectly flat top, carbonation seems fairly minimal.

S- Rich dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, molasses, espresso, lactose sugars, and a tiny bit of leather. Very aromatic, bold flavors, rich, and sweet. Smells like a rich caramel candy bar. Not much barrel, but I'm not complaining.

T- Dark chocolate with a slight bitterness, light dark fruits, lactose sugars, espresso, light caramel coming out on the finish followed by a subtle leather and toffee presence. Not nearly as tasty as the nose would leave you to believe, lacking the caramel and not being quite as rich while still lacking much of a barrel presence. Still very flavorful though.

M- Medium bodied with a slight rich velvety presence, finishes slick, fairly minimal carbonation which is good.

O- This beer really surprised me, it's definitely one of the better <8% stouts that I've had. Everything fits together perfectly from the rich smell/taste to the smooth slick mouthfeel. I wish this was regularly available and I'd love to have it again.

4.46/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. No freshness date. Bottle courtesy of mjshearer1.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of sheer surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Incredibly chocolaty aroma with a bunch of caramel as well. Smells like chocolate cake. Also some vanilla and burnt sugar.

T- Flavor isn't quite as sweet as the aroma would have you expect. More notes of milk chocolate, caramel and vanilla. The dark roast and light bourbon notes provide a nice balance to the decadent sweetness. Dark chocolate and mild coffee in the aftertaste.

M- Soft and thick with medium-low carbonation and a full body.

O- A wonderful dessert beer. Way more chocolate than coffee but that's all right. So smooth, rich and luscious. Would love to have access to this on a regular basis.
