Poured out at Layne's UFC Velasquez/Dos Santos party, man was I ready for this beer after many long hours watching Aladdin with the kids and dinner taking almost 3 hours. Anyhoo, poured a rich, thick black viscous liquid, thin dark tan head on the top of it. The aroma was decadent dark chocolate, I took the bottle across the room to have my girl check it out, because you know, shockingly, the girl likes her chocolate, and chocolate beers are like romantic I guess, or at least that's the most romantic foot forward I can put out there, chocolate beer.
Taste, yum yum, boatloads of real chocolate added here, its not some bitter chocolate malt as 10% of the grain bill and no chocolate added cheap out kind of beer that calls itself Chocolate something, oh no, this is the real deal. If Creme Brulee caused you to get diabetes and not like the beer because of that, but you still really love chocolate, then check this out. Its still pretty sweet, but its not Creme Brulee sweet (what is?), but jackhammers your mouth with chocolate.
It amazingly covers up the alcohol. This is a high abv beer, but you wouldn't know it (until you stand back up). I just can't imagine a better mouthfeel, it seemed perfect in every way, no bad aftertaste, no intrusive late stage bitterness. It was just like chocolate beer.
Probably my favorite beer, from a brewery I really love. Southern Tier is still King of New York.
