Delicious. Not as sweet as their Creme Brulee, but definitely delicious.

Slightly boozy, but that's mostly aromatic and in the nose. Strong chocolate flavor (of course) is a real delight. Almost a milkshake?

LOOK: Very dark brown, almost black. A finger's worth of head that's a tight family of tiny bubbles. Hold it up to the light and it's basically opaque.

SMELL: Bittersweet chocolate. A little cinnamon and/or spice?

TASTE: Strong chocolate flavor from start to finish. Completely dominates the palate. Slightly boozy note to finish.

FEEL: Thick and full and rich. Viscous. Your mind fills in some blanks and makes it into a milkshake.

This is a freaking great beer if you like some chocolate in your booze, and I do. Chocolate and alcohol that about it semi fresh, and its great. Looks is the only down side outside of a short filled bottle (thats a deduction on the over all.) and there isn't jack for lacing. outside of those small things this beer is killer.

Wonderful beer if you like a sweet stout. Chocolate is the star of the show. Easy drinking. Great nose.

Bottle. Started at 45d. I was not a fan of this beer. The best thing thing about it to me is the strong and inviting chocolate aroma. It's there up front at the start and remains present throughout. But there is also a strong alcohol presence in both the smell and taste that overrides the nice chocolate. At 10% ABV the booze overpowers the chocolate and anything else. Not sure what to pair this with other than dessert. I would much rather have the fantastic Organic Chocolate Samuel Smith at half the alcohol and exponentially more flavorful and enjoyable.
