Paired with dessert at the Brooklyn dinner. Poured into a flute an inky black with a little head that died down quickly.
Smell? Intoxicating and exceptional. Chocolate-y, with rosewatery alcohol fumes. Undercurrent of pure vanilla.
Taste - Wow, this is liquid dessert. Sweet, of course, but not overbearingly sweet. Big bitter dark chocolate presence as well as some hop; I can't really tell to what extent the dark chocolate and hops are contributing the pleasant bitterness. Has that vanilla-latte undercurrent noted in the smell, reminds me of a fresh, hot oak-aged Yeti.
Feel - Inky, but we are dealing with nearly 11% here. There's enough carbonation.
Drinkability - while it's *very* good, to me drinkability on this one is quite limited. It was quite enjoyable, especially paired with a fruity dessert, but finishing off even a flute glass of it was tough sledding. It's just that big and bold; to me it very nearly crosses into DFH World Wide Stout terrirory.

330ml bottle. Tulip glass. Pure black color headed by creamy foam. Brownish tan is lasting & leaves lacing on sides. Roasted malt & cocoa aromas with herbal hues. Bitter cocoa, hints of toffee & lavender at first sip. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous texture & subtle spicy to the palate. Bitterness grows up in the middle & lingers, attached to herbal infusion & creamy roasted maltiness, into the finish. Bitter cocoa on the aftertaste. ABV has been well camouflaged. Flavorful & nice drinkable!!
