[Best served in a Tulip glass]
It poured a very deep dark black with a large (2-3 finger) dense creamy medium brown head that lasted throughout and had exquisite lacing that stuck very well to the glass.
The aroma right off gets you with a nice whiff of chocolate then a moderate roasted dark bread malt and a sweet leathery yeast with hints of dark roasted coffee, caramel, a touch of dark fruit and a tinge of citrus.
The taste well lets just say "WOW" begins with a mild bitterness that has a nice note of coffee, then it progresses into a much sweeter flavor with a large dose of chocolate and a mild fruitiness at the end. The flavor only lasted an average amount of time after the swallow which was rather disappointing since it tasted so good.
Mouthfeel was extremely full and chewy in body with the texture being super creamy and having a nice soft carbonation.
Overall this brew with out a doubt is one of the best beers I have ever sampled. This one definitely makes my top 10 thus far.

750mL bottle poured into tulip
Dark, charred brown color with opaque bleakness. Crop of tanned head slowly fades out, leaving some spots of lacing dotted around the glass.
Chocolate, bittersweet chocolate and chocolate malts. Roasted dark malts and a hint of alcohol warmth.
Slightly syrupy chocolate runs throughout the profile. Hints of bitterness with dark roasted malts, molasses and a soft detection of caramel and vanilla. Finishes warm and chocolatey.
Medium body, decent carbonation, bubbly and a little flat/thin on the tongue. Probably should have opened this one a long time ago but it got a bit lost in the shuffle of bottles in my fridge/cellar, although this still feels extremely one-note.
