Pours black with a creamy brown tan head. Vinous aroma consisting of roasted grain, milk chocolate and alcohol. Mouthfeel is full-bodied and coating. It's thick and sticky on the lips. Taste is simply amazing. Starts off with roasted grains and sweet chocolate and molasses. Super malty. Traces of caramel. Alcohol and dark fruit flavors convert to an almost rum-soaked cherry flavor that's rather intriguing and appears near the back. Alcohol is apparent, yet not overpowering. Best enjoyed slowly and as a sipper.
Special thanks to AKSmokedPorter for the opportunity to enjoy this masterpiece.

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.
