4.35/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

22oz bottle - no date, but I assume its from this year. Served in a snifter.

Appearance: Bit of a very dark cola brown upon pouring, but this quickly got quite dark and black. Barest ring of foam around the edge, no lacing. Dark, but not a stunner in the appearance department for this category of stout.

Smell: Very rich and inviting. Rich chocolate & cocoa powder smell combined with afternotes of coffee.

Taste: Very rich. Sweet and desert like. Starts with a rich upfront chocolate taste moving into dark black coffee and bit of an espresso bitter finish at the end. Indeed a beer with coffee and chocolate as the dominant features, as advertised by the bottle. Alcohol very well hidden in all of this richness.

Mouthfeel: Creamy thick, barest level of carbonation underneath it all. Some alcohol burn/bite as it goes down the throat.

Overall / Drinkability: A definite dessert beer. I had this with dessert (Buttermilk Pie) but afterwards, I felt this beer WAS the desert. It stands all on its own. Combining it with more dessert is almost too much. But it is an amazing beer in aroma, taste, and mouthfeel. Definitely a one and done beer though. 1 large snifter was enough, and more and I would be hurting later. The beer is a slow sipping savoring beer, much like a big dessert being picked at and savored towards the end of a nice meal.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pitch black pour with a brown one-finger head. Really great chocolate and marshmallow aroma. Initial taste has a really strong dark chocolate and cocoa flavor that is big and bold. Full body that drinks relatively easy. Coffee flavor is very subdued and there’s just a slight bitterness around mid taste. Finishes sweet with a really nice lingering chocolate flavor…almost list a good chocolate ice cream.

4.15/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

The thick dark pour has a deep radiance of black opal. The head is a long lived dense foam of coffee colored brown.

The nose is filled with creamy, milky chocolate, marshmallow, toffee and caramel sweetness, with a light roasted coffee. The scent is thick and sweet.

The flavors are tempered in their sweetness and a little dry. Mostly chocolate and cocoa hits the palate with a roasted marshmallow and light malty Graham Cracker. The roasted qualities are always there and evidenced by a coffee flavor but it's not as easy to distinguish.

The feel is very smooth and viscous, dry and easy with a light burn of alcohol.

Delicious after dinner beer that may fall just short of Creme Brulee but still worth the $10 bomber.

3.61/5  rDev -14%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a nice thick black with a decent king size head due to serving it a bit warmer than recommended. Has a slightly initial metallic smell along with sweetness and bitter coffee. Contrary to many other reviews, this really smells like coffee and tastes more like coffee to me than chocolate. A mild bitterness at the finish and a slightly oily mouthfeel. There is a definite difference between this and choklat to me. Alcohol seems well masked. Surprisingly, not too sweet.
