Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pitch black brew, no colored halo with a decent sized tan head, about 2-3 inches tall. Aroma is roasted yet quite sweet, chocolate sauce, light roast coffee, ample vanilla bean, mellow brown spice, and a hint of earthy hops. Palate is similarly sweet, spicy, and earthy, chocolate cake, coffee, cola, and strong vanilla with a slight bell pepper fruitiness, dried raisins and currants, wood char, black licorice, caramel, and a noticeably (for the style) assertive hop bite in the finish. Quite thick and the carbonation is on the low side, although something in the brew prevents things from being disturbingly sweet and syrupy even if this is on the sweet side for my liking. Quite smooth on the palate. Very slight detectable spicy heat either from the chillies or the hops (probably the former). Alcohol is very well-concealed. A rather solid dessert beer that doesn't taste gimmicky.
