Bought in the 22 oz bottle with the expectation that this would be a sweet, dessert type of beer.
Pour - black with a very thin head (I used a SA perfect pint since I don't have a snifter). Probably a touch colder than recommended. The head dissipated fast, leaving a nice ring around the glass. Some nice deep red tints if you catch the light right.
Aroma - the alcohol wasn't hiding here at all, but weakened as it warms up. Dark-sweet chocolate otherwise, not too much else.
Taste - the alcohol still isn't being shy, even warmed up to temp. BIG chocolate up front, very sweet and very bitter but not unpleasantly so. Maybe a little vanilla, definitely a little smokiness in the after taste. Some layering of the flavors here, but dominated by chocolate.
Mouthfeel - seems it has a nice carbonation level and a little bit of a tingle. Not as thick and syrupy as expected (based on the smell, I thought this would be thick like chocolate syrup). Pretty clean overall. Nice warming feeling I assume from the high ABV.
I enjoyed this beer quite a bit, but it would only be a once in a while thing for me. Reserve it for a sweet treat type of occasion.
