look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Black. Dark brown head that goes away quickly. Bottle has a great label and is trimmed with red foil.

Smell: Chocolate and Coffee. The alcohol makes its presence know as well.

Taste: Boozy. Wonderful chocolate flavor with some sweetness. I pick up more of the coffee as well as some bitterness on the finish. The Alcohol is in your face on the fist taste, but fades a bit once your palate becomes more accustomed to it.

Mouthfeel: Full. Maybe a bit oily.

Overall: Terrific Beer! Although a bit upfront with the alcohol, the flavor makes this one a definite must try.

12 oz bottle
Release Dec. 2013 Batch No.9 (15.4% Alc/Vol)
Served in an Oversized Wine Glass
