4.7/5  rDev +29.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - A monstrous four finger brown head rises above a dark, dark brown (almost, but not quite black) brew. This head is solid, creamy, heavy, and very beautiful. It shows excellent retention...it never fell below a solid fat finger of heavy brown whipping cream. A swirl leaves thick sheets of foam on the glass that slide down and leave a nice web-work of brown lace behind. Awesome.

S - Dark chocolate is what I smell initially, followed by some lightly roasted grains and a big fresh black-bread bakery aroma. Raisinette chocolate covered raisin candy, and thick fresh chocolate chip cookies.

T - The aroma is nice, but I wasn't prepared for the stunning flavors presented here! Gooey warm chocolate chip cookies, chocolate ice-cream lightly drizzled in chocolate syrup and caramel. Behind the fresh bakery and confectionery flavors, there are some nice roasty notes that suggest coffee and campfire smoke, and more dark fruits come out as it warms. Some grassy hops provide a bit of balance and keep the abundance of sugary flavors from becoming cloying. The finish is all port and brandy. Lush, warming, a bit grapey, and very comforting.

M - Full bodied, lush, lightly carbonated, and sugar-coated. I can feel a lot of residual sugars coating my mouth, but the slight twinge of alcohol and a very green-grassy hop note keep it lively.

D - Although it's not cloying, it's not a session beer. I could drink one of these with some chocolates or a cigar. I also think that it could stand up to a burger or steak, but this is one that I would like to savor on it's own. A chocolate lover's dream.

Bought a single bottle from Beers of the World for $ 1.99 on 2/23/14. Poured into a Samuel Smith's pint glass, served cool.

Appearance:Deep, dark blackish brown with a few reddish highlights at the bottom with a 1 finger khaki head, lacing doesn't last very long.

Smell: very deep roasted Barley and then more roast and then more, maybe a touch of fusel.

Taste: Barley syrup, followed by licorice, lots of licorice.

Mouthfeel: solid, good

Overall: good looking, intoxicating aroma, rich yummy taste, decent mouthfeel. Drink. Enjoy.
