look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into large snifter; jet black with a thick dark brown foam that fades after a bit into a thick ring.
Smells like a sugar bomb... chocolate, toffee, caramel, dark sugary. Coffee is a secondary scent by far.
Taste is thankfully not as sweet as the smell. Coffee is much stronger, good espresso and bitter baking chocolate. Sweetness then comes in with dark sugar, toffee, caramel, and milk chocolate.
Mouthfeel is big and well carbonated, finishes sticky.
Overall a good dessert stout. Too sweet to do much else with, but at least it's drinkable unlike creme brulee.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Beer pours opaque black with little to no espresso froth colored foam. Mild to little carbonation. Smell is pronounced milk chocolate with some background notes of cacao/espresso. Does not smell like beer. Flavor is sweet, chocolate frothy malted milkshake at first with an intense bitter twang to finish. Smooth, not overall thick, yet clings to the cheeks like milk. Really delicious overall, ultimate nightcap.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: This beer is midnight...evil and opaque. The carbonation is slightly visible. The light brown head lingers then dissipates quickly.

Smell: Coffee and chocolate notes are there, but something else is there that I can't put my finger on. The coffee is secondary. The chocolate is pronounced. It's a sweeter chocolate. Not overpowering. What hits the nose hardest is a unique note that reminds me of marshmallow and the scent of a freshly sliced vanilla bean.

Taste: The taste follows the nose with notes of milk chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Initially, this beer is sweet. Not cloying and well balanced. There are two distinct acts to this beer. The back end or after taste is a little more coffee than chocolate. W/ 10% ABV no lingering alcohol on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation. not sticky or lingering.

Overall: This beer has the best of both worlds in that it opens with strong sweet notes of milk chocolate and vanilla, but finishes with bitter notes of coffee. It's a remarkable feat for this sweet style of beer. Extremely pleasant and drinkable.
