22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Poured black, "as dark as a moonless night" as it says on the bottle, with a small, dark tan head. It smelled like oak, chocolate, espresso, sugar, caramel. The taste was loaded with sweetness and chocolate with some vanilla, caramel, oak and espresso with some oats to smooth it out. It was like a liquid candy, but smooth. There's some hidden hops at the back end. The mouthfeel was thick like motor oil, after all, it's 28o Plato. This is what I see as definition of a dessert beer - something that goes great with chocolate, heavy, and something that should be slow sipped. I couldn't go much faster than slow sipping anyway because it was so sweet. This was like a smoother, less vanilla-y, somewhat less sweet version of their Creme Brulee.
