Pours menacing and black with no light , not even around the edges. A little thick but not so thick like oil. Had a fair head of beige foam that fell fast and left a big ring with enough lace to look at. Nose is dark and roasty. Chocolate and a bit of fruit. Hops take a backseat but I do get a little plum from the nose. Drinks smooth and a little hot. Milky chocolate and full malt. Molasses, brown sugar, raisins. Medium heavy body and very creamy.

Drinks hard with the alcohol but pleasantly so. The heat lingers at the back of the throat and the chocolate is divine. I got a few hints of spice on the nose but so far none of the cinnamon allspice and ginger that other people talked about. Maybe it needs to warm. Big beer. Really big beer.

Bottle poured into snifter

A - Pours a thick deep black body. Looks like a beast at first pour. Only a little light getting through the edges, but very dark

S - Sweet and roasty dominate the nose. Some dried fruit and dark chocolate.

T - Several flavors going on with the dark chocolate and roasted notes dominating.

M - Coats the mouth well. Nice full body, almost no carbonation

O - Pretty much what I expected from the description. It's a lot to tackle solo. For the price and ease of obtaining, I would keep a couple to drink over the next year.
