Appearance is jet black and opaque. The thin, tan head only lasts a little while, but with this much ABV I'm not surprised. A little lacing clings to the glass.
Aromas are a big wow moment! Rich notes of chocolate, coffee, alcohol, vanilla and roasted malts.
Flavors carry over from the nose, with bold taste of chocolate malts, coffee, caramel and strong alcohol. I get some bittersweet chocolate - slightly sweet and a little bitter as well.
Feel is smooth, think and full-bodied. Carbonation is on the low side. Nice warming effects.
Overall this is an incredible beer. At 12%, its a slow sipper you can sit back and slowly savor.
