Pours black, with a dark brown, fluffy head.

Huge amounts of roast and chocolate in the nose. Ripe fruits and burnt coffe. Also some chocolate orange aromas there. Incredible.

Sweet milky chocolate up front. Somewhat sweet and roasty in the middle, with an emphasis on dark chocolate and ripe bananas. Leaves a perfectly balancing bitterness on the back of the tongue.

Huge body, and very delicious. Easily the best I've had from Brooklyn, very drinkable.

Appearance - This baby pours jet black in color and leaves a frothy white cumulus cloudscape. The bubbles in the head are like tiny beads. I thought of the scrubbing bubbles from the Dow commercial and happy little bubbles dancing around my glass. The lacing is sticky and leaves rings like the circles of the inside of a tree trunk all the way down the glass.

Smell - Count Chocula, java notes and dark roasted malt.

Taste - Smooth chocolate, coffee flavors, a hint of vanilla.

Mouthfeel - Shimmering, slippery, delicious chocolate with a warming, sweet finish. Carbonation is just right. Body is bold, but not overly.

Drinkability - One of the best I've ever had. Could possibly use more body and smoothness, but at 10% ABV and for the price, this is an unbeatable RIS.

Overall - I love this beer and purchase it regularly. I don't think there is any issue with the ABV and there being too much alcohol in the taste. I will continue to drink this wonderful chocolate excursion and suggest it to others.
