Aggressive pour yields a thin head of very dark brown, that’s gone quickly too, any lacing is incidental to tilting the glass side to side. De rigueur impenetrably black liquid, razor thin touch of orange rust to the edges, impossible to gauge carbonation visually. The nose is pure chocolate through and through, like chocolate cut with chocolate and a dash of chocolate on top, after that you might discern malted milk balls, vanilla, banana and a smidgeon of black licorice but really this is one repeat bass note of thudding chocolate. Full-bodied, layers itself on the palate until you have to make a concerted effort to move your tongue, creamy and soft, however, the carbonation actually manages to give it a needed nudge forward now and then. Not sure where it comes from but there’s a vanilla, caramel whiskey oak barrel thing going on. Minor plum and blackberry fruit accents. Not much roast nor clearly present hops. Yet, it is not without a bitter, more dark chocolate aspect. No alcoholic burn. This is about as close to pure chocolate flavored a beer can get retaining a soul and without it becoming a laboratory malt beverage.
