3.9/5  rDev -6%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an Ommegang chalice. 01/02/09. Winter 08-09 version.

Pours nearly pitch black with about on finger of dense dark brown head. The head stayed around for nearly forever, and left some nice lacing around the glass. This is a very beautiful beer. Aroma is full of dark roasted malt and dark chocolate, with a hint of coffee.

Taste starts with heavily roasted malt and plenty of dark chocolate. Some caramel, vanilla, milk chocolate, and hints of dark fruits and cherry. Slightly sweet up front with a nice bitter dark chocolate finish. A hint of hops in the finish as well. The alcohol is pretty well hidden in the taste, but still noticeable. Overall, the taste is heavy on the roasted and bitter side.

Feel is smooth and creamy with ample carbonation. It's full-bodied and slightly heavy. Slight warming from the alcohol. Drinkability is decent for a heavy beer and the alcohol is fairly well-hidden.

Overall, a pretty tasty beer. A bit rough while fresh though and would probably benefit from a bit of age. Definitely worth a try though.
