5/5  rDev +17.4%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Wow! That is the best term I can think of to describe this beer.

It literally tastes like a glass of high quality chocolate elixer fit for the gods.

Pours a deep black and takes a while for the dutch cocoa colored head to build. It doesn't stay around long, but rebuilds with every swirl. For a beer with this high of an ABV, it is very good.

The aroma is so good it really rates a 6! It is like opening a box of the finest chocolates you can buy. It is like smelling Godiva chocolate liqueur.

The taste is also exceptional. It is sweet enough to really bring out the chocolate, yet still has enough bitterness on the finish to round out and balance the beer.

Mouthfeel is perfect. It is rich and thick and chewy, yet clears the palate quickly, leaving a faint echo of chocolate.

Overall, you would never even guess that this is an 11% beer. It drinks so easily you could easily finish a bomber and start the next. So be warned--drink carefully as there will undoubtably be a kick on this one as it gets into the bloodstream.

My advice, buy this if you see it no matter what the price!

This one pours a pure blackness that is dark as the darkest night with no moon or stars. There is a moderate thickness to the head that is rich and pillowy and tan that settles extremely slowly and leaves a shallow ring down the glass as opposed to lacing.

The nose is a fruity bourbon with notes of chocolate, coffee, anise, cardamon, vanilla, toast and raspberries.

The taste is very sharp and the alcohol has a definite bite that combines with the hops to attack the palate and dominate then gives way to a very complex smokey malt filled with a variety of flavors of smoke, bourbon, apples, bananas, coffee, chocolate, vanilla with a subtle peppery tinge in the finish.

The moutfeel is fairly creamy and the beer is a heavy one, especially for an American Stout.

Overall this is an exceptional stout that is very easy to enjoy. I found it went extremely well with some sushi.
