3.83/5 rDev -10.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5
Out of the bottle into a snifter.
Appearance: Murky and intimidating. Dark like midnight, gothic dark, evil dark. Beautiful, thick, billowy head.
Smell: Chocolate. Chocolate eclairs, chocolate fondant, chocolate pastry cream. Anything that is chocolate+creamy+sweet. Espresso notes are light, like someone is brewing a stovetop cafe downstairs. Roasty, big and in your face. Did I mention chocolate and tons of it.
Taste: Sweet chocolate cream, big malts and espresso on the finish. The chocolate notes are huge, almost to huge. I feel like I just sucked the filling out of a Krispy Kreme chocolate filled.
Mouthfeel: Thick and full. Like drinking hershey syrup. Big on the start, big on the finish. Leaves a chocolate coating on the mouth that is there until you brush your teeth. Viscous and thick, period.
Drinkability: Ones enough. Its so big and in your face that 4oz's is plenty IMO. more of a digestivo that a beer.
Overall: Great nose and presentation but a little to unbalanced and thick. I've never tasted this much sweet chocolate in a beer and never thought a brew could have so much cocoa character but the novelty wears of quick and gets a little trying.
Serving type: bottle
