This beer was served out of a 12oz. bottle dispensed into a glass....
Presentation - Bottle and Label are just classy. Color scheme simple and elegant.
Appearance - Pours a thick oily dark dark brown almost black color with a 2 finger thick brown head that hangs quite a while before finally dissipating into a nice think foam coating. Has very good lacing left on the glass the entire way down.
Smell - Smells of dark chocolate and roasted coffee malts. Has some hints of dark fruits as well. Alcohol is very prevalent in the smell.
Taste - Tastes of dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate with the bitterness coming from the coffee malts. Alcohol is very well masked in the taste considering how prevalent it is in the aroma.
Mouthfeel - Full bodied, smooth, and filling with little carbonation.
Drinkability -This is a beer that I could only have a few of because of the filling heavy nature and high alcohol content.
Very flavorful and complex beer that I enjoyed overall. For some reason this was beer was a bit much for me, however, it was a nice change of pace from my typical IPA drinking tendencies.

4.19/5 rDev +1%

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.
