Yay, first winter ale of the season. Okay, it's probably a little early given that we haven't had Halloween yet, but I went to the liquor store looking for winter beers and I was happy to find a couple.

A: Chestnut brown with head that lingers and lingers.
S: Sweet. Maybe some spice in there. Malty. Dark fruits.
T: Dark fruits followed by bitter pure cocoa, with a boozy aftertaste. It's boozier than I might prefer, but, well, the label does say 8%.
F: Smooth.
O: Not exactly what I expected, but quite nice.

Pours dark brown with a large fading off-white head.
Very malty aroma with nutty malt, a bit of chocolate and some soft booze.
Sweet flavours too. More nutty malt, almost cloying. Some melanoidin notes and booze.
Needs more carbonation.
Got pretty hard to drink by end.

Lets cut to the chase. This beer is basically liquid dark chocolate. It's got slight hits of coffee, but the taste of chocolate overpowers it. I like the founders style bottle and the Picasso(ish) label art. Great beer, I've bought it twice and wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.
