A - Black opaque elegance topped with a 1/2 inch caramel head.

S - Faint chocolate and booze.

T - Like a dark chocolate bar with 75% cacao. Sweet at the front, but slightly bitter at the finish.

M - Thick and rich, like a milkshake. Hangs out on your palate for a minute or two.

O - A great dessert beer. My middle-age woman need for chocolate and booze has been satisfied by this sumptuous stout.

A: pours a jet black with a nice 2 1/2 finger creamy, tan, head - good retention and leaves a nice sticky lace.

S: Dark chocolate, ripe fruit (raisins, plums, cherries)

T: chocolaty up front with a soury-sweet fruity tang and a subtle mocha flavour on the finish Nice and complex, very intriguing. the 10.6% ABV is hidden very well.

M: thick and creamy with a good kick of carbonation and a silky smooth finish.

D: This is a great beer. It has a really nice bouquet of complex scents and flavours and has a higher ABV than most popular stouts. Even still, it is very drinkable, and despite it's thick and creamy body, I could definitely put 2 or 3 of these down in one sitting.

This was an extra in my first trade with nflmvp. Thanks Steve, it was great.

Pours black and completely opaque with two fingers of rich mocha colored head sitting on top of the glass. The head slowly receeds to leave a thin layer around the glass and a thin coating on top of the beer.

The aroma of this beer is fairly strong with chocolate taking the lead. Notes of roasted malt and a slight bitterness are also present, but a strong alcohol scent leads the more subtle flavors.

The taste is big. Roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate steal the show to be followed by a slight bit of alcohol. This beer is really quite delicious.

Mouthfeel is full and fairly thick with an adequate level of carbonation for the style. This carbonation mellows through the experience to eventually create a warm, thick, still stout.

Drinkability is fairly low in terms of strength of alcohol and amount of flavor. However I've rated drinkability as good due to the fact that it's smooth drinking, and the alcohol I've noted does not interupt the drinking experience. Quite nice.
