I really enjoyed this beer. However, I do agree with alot of the other reviews in saying that this is pretty much only a dessert beer.
Pours black with dark, almost red head. Very nice appearance.
The nose is dark fruit and dark and bakers chocolate. Well balanced aroma on this beer.
The taste is extremely sweet and rich, and oh so good. I would compare it to chocolate covered cherries. Delicious. The estery taste comes through immediately as does the chocolate. Subtle notes of candy sugar. Full bodied and heavy. This beer is worthy of the name "indulgence". Very good for dessert.
Serving type: on-tap

Undated bottle at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma of chocolate
Head large (7 cm), light brown, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing good – reticulum covering most of glass, bubbles varying in size
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor begins with chocolate and slight alcohol flavor; no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation
This is an excellent chocolate stout, of which I usually keep a couple bottles around. The appearance is very appealing – large, creamy head and good lacing atop a deliciously dark brew, topped by the alluring aroma of chocolate. The flavor is chocolaty and delicious, with only the slight taste of alcohol detracting from the pleasure. Overall, a very exquisite brew.
