4.03/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter
A: Black as night, half finger beige head dissolves quickly, light lacing
S: The aroma is pleasantly present without being overly stong. Roasty malt, chocolate, toffee, and burnt caramel dominate.
T: This is one smooth RIS. Chocolate and toffee up front transitioning to burnt caramel, finishes dry with roasted malt and just the right amount of bitterness added by the hops.
M: Well-pronounced heavy body, well-carbonated while not disrupting the creamy smoothness and silkiness.
O: In two words: extremely well-balanced. An exceptionally easy drinking RIS that will completely satisify committed stouties while pleasing dabblers as well. By the name you might be expecting a brew that borders on the sweet, but this one borders on the dry. Make sure someone reminds you that it's 10% abv. Although it provides some warmth it's still easy to forget...

4.19/5 rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
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.
