Amazing! Great to mix it 60/40 with a raspberry beer.

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

Pours a pitch black body with a one finger chocolate head. Head retention is average and lacing is pretty good.

Smell is of sweet, dark chocolate. Coffee and alcohol are pretty light. Burnt malts and dark chocolate really dominate smells.

Taste is a mix of sweet chocolate malts, bitter coffee, finishes with a slight boozy burn. Very bold flavors with an alcohol kick.

Mouthfeel is full bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. Silky smooth going down, lack of head doesn't affect the feel as much as I'd expect.

Overall this beer was pretty tasty. Good amount of chocolate, hint of coffee and alcohol. Not exactly session able but great for a special occasion.
