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.

Stoked for this guy, 22oz bomber split into snifters...

A: Black pour with red hues, surprisingly not as dark or viscous as I thought it might be...off-tan head dissipates pretty rapidly.

S: Huge milk chocolate and Belgian bittersweet chocolate notes...chocolate covered espresso beans, roasted malt base, hints of darker caramel...lots of sweetness without being cloying. Smells like dessert for sure.

T: Sweetness again, with a moderate roasted malt character...touch of a burnt note on the finish. Dark chocolate and black malt maybe? There is the slightest semblance of balance here between sweet and bitter.

MF: Creamy medium-full body with medium carbonation levels and a dry flash of bitterness on the finish.

O: This is the ST stout I've been looking for since trying Choklat and Creme Brulee. The suggestion of balance, though it might be a facade, is still welcome. Toning down that sweet ST style into something more readily drinkable is a HUGE plus to me. Good stuff.

4.4/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Nearly jet black, cap of tan head, little lace at the edge of the glass. Smell is full of chocolate, milk and bittersweet, vanilla, coffee beans and a moderate amount of roasty malt are present with bits of alcohol, but really quite chocolate heavy. Taste is similar to the nose lots of chocolate, vanilla and black coffee, sweet milky chocolate notes, fairly bitter most likely the work of the coffee, some alcohol heat but not boozy, more chocolate and coffee beans in the finish and leaves flavours of vanilla in the aftertaste. Lightly carbonated and creamy big and full bodied. Delicious stuff here, sweet and loaded with a ton of flavour, really good stuff.
