3.95/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber into a Fuller's pint glass

A - Very dark brown, minimal tan head, very slight lacing, head recedes to just a rim around the glass on the surface of the beer.

S - Predominate smell is of sweet chocolate, with maybe a hint of coffee, that is all I get.

T - Once again lots of chocolate, and some coffee, a slight medicinal finish, can certainly sense the alcohol.

M - Medium bodied, mild carbonation, slight sweetness

O - For me a nice brew, very heavy

22 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip; no dating on the bottle or label. Black body with a tint of red when held up to the light. Just a slim amount of tan head that dissipates almost immediately.

Very strong aroma of chocolate throughout the session of this beer. A small amount of coffee aroma come through as well. Not a complex aroma as these two notes dominate, but it does smell good.

The flavor is a little more dense than the aroma, but is still predominantly the chocolate and coffee, as expected. Added in the flavor is the roasted malt and touch of toffee/caramel. A hint of bitterness that aligns with the coffee keeps this one from being overly sweet.

Thick and smooth texture in the mouthfeel. Overall, this brew comes across with a very good blend of the coffee and chocolate. I normally rate most ST beers low due to the excessive sweetness, but this is one of the best I've had.

Poured this from a bomber into a pint glass. It was black with very little head and lots of lacing. It had a very strong cocoa smell, which was very sweet and largely masked the roasted malts and coffee. This thick beer had a taste to match; think of Swiss Miss cocoa delivered via a stout vehicle. It was too much for me at the time I had it, but admittedly it was at the end of a 4 hr session, and I likely hit a wall. I generally love everything from Southern Tier, so I need to give this another shot on its own.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into Duvel tulip.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black color. Good, thick, finger sized, light brown colored head. Appears to have light carbonation. Not much lacing.

Aroma is full of chocolate and coffee. Coffee is a little more dominant, giving a sweetness and roastiness. Not much in the way of hops. Some caramel detected too. Reminds me of what a chocolate milkshake smells like with some a nice dose of coffee and a light addition of caramel.

Taste is very similar to aroma. Very smooth, the flavors blend together really well. Right up front is a heavy dose of coffee and some roastiness. This then transitions into a lightly sweet chocolateyness. On the finish is a light, dry bite of bitterness with a nice bit of warming alcohol.

Slightly creamy. Full body and light carbonation. A drinkable beer for over 11%, although I will savor this beer for awhile.

Definitely a dessert beer. Really should have shared this with someone else. Not overly sweet like Creme Brulee, but reminds me of coffee, chocolate, caramel ice cream. Would enjoy again if I get in on draft or can split a bomber with someone.
