Wow! Two stage head off a hard pour. Drinks chocolate, vanilla then finishes with a strong coffee bitter. In that order! There is a very noticeable transition between the three big flavors. Great beer overall! ISO more!

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black. Medium khaki head. Wispy surface and a thin collar.

Smell - Vanilla. Lots of vanilla. A bit of whiskey. Milk chocolate.

Taste - Whiskey much more prominent. Also some coffee, but it isn't that strong. A little acidic on the coffee. Chocolate is nice. Boozy finish and a touch of roasty bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Sharp booziness. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Lots of chocolate as it warms. I'm amazed there's no vanilla added to this.
