I am enjoying this relatively fresh (Winter 10-11 batch)
This beer pours jet black with copious amounts of creamy, tan head. The head is a very dark tan color, almost brown, and leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass. This beer looks awesome.
On the nose you can pick up on some roasted notes from the malts and an ever-so-slight hint of chocolate. Smells pretty mild.
Flavor wise, the chocolate is definitely there. Its an unsweetened chocolate that lingers around for a while. Nothing extremely complex or unique about the flavor, but its just a very nice roasty tasting chocolate. Its on the thick side, with low carbonation, alcohol is not very prevalent, especially given the 10% ABV this thing packs; I am really surprised, its masked very well. Gets increasingly roasty and toasty as it warms, a good winter beer.
