Aggressive pour, but still no head. This is my only complaint on looks, because other than that, it is freekin' pitch black. Hold it up to the light and still nothing gets through. Just spilled a little on my shirt and I don't think that's ever coming out. It smells a little too much like vodka and coke to me. Some chocolate in there, but not enough to off-set the alc. The taste is not as chocolatey and smooth as I would have hoped, and there is a little burn toward the end which I would like to have masked a touch better, but all in all, it is pretty fine given the 10%. It is a bit lively, too, with a whisk of fruity flavors before the coffee and dark chocolate wash, then finishing with that slight burn.
I'll be honest, this just isn't my style. I don't need to taste my alcohol to enjoy it, and although this beer does a better job then most at masking it, it seems a little bit too much like a chocolate flavored rum...with a lot of body. Still, I would say this is one of the best of the style that I have had.

Not really my thing. The taste is overwhelming and not all that enjoyable. I struggled to finish the can. With that said, my friend who finished it loved the beer. I would personally recommend against this, but given its high rating most people disagree with me. To each their own.
