Shared in a trade from OakedCanuck, thanks! Poured into a snifter.
A - black as night with a surprisingly thick one inch brownish head on top.
S - chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and a touch of malt sweetness.
T - good, but a little soft. The chocolate is there, but not as pronounced and I would've liked. Coffee and vanilla in the middle, then some hop/espresso bitterness on the back, as well as a small bit of alcohol warmth.
M - good carbonation and smooth on the palate.
D - it's pleasant, but could use a year to let the alcohol and hops mellow out and maybe allow for some more of that chocolate to come forward.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into KBS snifter, bottled in 2013. Bottle stored in cellar then briefly refrigerated prior to opening. Pours a beautiful jet black and forms a two inch foamy head that's beige in color. The head ultimately settles into a thin ring around the glass.
The nose is French roast coffee and milk chocolate, quite inviting. There's also a strong roasted malt aroma, followed by a spicy presence that hints of nutmeg. The taste is quite similar to its nose, bitter mocha, sweet molasses and roasted malt, fudge and spicy (chile ancho and nutmeg).
The mouthfeel of this beer is quite pleasant, almost no carbonation present which in my opinion helps savour the beer even better.
Overall - very excited to discover this beer, its quite enjoyable and hides the 10% ABV extremely well. Its sweet yet no overwhelmingly so and all of its flavors are well balanced.
