3.75/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 650 mL bottle into a Leffe chalice, tried to let it warm up a little bit before drinking.

Produced a nice solid brown head that dissipated fairly quickly, leaving lace that lasted for a good while before being left with a ring of foam around the glass.

Color is as close to black as possible, no light gets through this, very dark brown.

Aroma is initially of chocolate, which becomes more pronounced as it warms. At one point the smell is reminiscent of Nesquik powder, and eventually some coffee/espresso aroma comes through.

Taste is definitely chocolate based in the front, malty and sweet. Before this warmed up it was nearly cloying. The espresso really comes through more in the taste than in the smell of this brew, and provides the main bitterness. Some noticeable warmth on the finish, as expected at 11.2%. As the carbonation dissipates and it warms, the flavors blend together more smoothly. I do wish it had a bit more hop contribution to help pull the finish together.

The head is creamy initially before giving way to a thick rich feeling beer.

Overall, definitely an enjoyable beer that should be tried at least once. Chocolate on the forefront and a coffee/espresso finish leave it spot on for what its advertised as.
