Bought a single at HEB in Round Rock.

Perfect looking beer. Gave a hard pour...deep black, big billowy head. Absolutely beautiful lacing...thick creamy off white head leaves tons of ring after each sip...much like a Guinness.

Yum. Rich chocolate, vanilla, and coffee on the scent. Deep burnt malt as well.

Excellent. Taste follows suit. Silky smooth beer with a lot of flavor without overloading the alcohol...what's not to like here? Good combo of choc, vanilla, coffee, dark malt, and cream. Almost like a dessert beer...not sure I'd session this one, even with the 6% abv being sessionable...just a bit too rich.

Glad I finally tried it!

If it wasn't for the slight tinge of amber when held up to the light, it would pour jet black. A thin half-finger (a finger isn't really an accurate figure of measurement, but you get the idea) of a chocolate milk colored head formed, even when I "poured hard." Oh well.

Smells are of high percentage dark chocolate and anise.

Taste is phenomenal-- espresso, dark chocolate, a subtle herbal bitterness. The finish is smooth and pleasing. Feels quite silky in the mouth. Fantastic. I can see why this keeps raking in the awards and praise-- it's all deserved.
