Served to me at the Peculiar Pub in Manhattan, poured into a pint glass.

A-This beer poured a beautiful, dark black, as one would expect based on the beer's name. Beer was completely opaque and topped with a quick thick brown head, which sustained surprisingly well.

S-Aromas of chocolate and heavy roasted barley dominated, with hints of dark fruity esters as well. As I expected, though, the name says it all: chocolate.

T-This is one indulgent brew :D Thick with chocolate flavors, dark and dry, at times almost bitter chocolate. This deep chocolate character pairs beautifully with the in-balance roasted malt flavors. In with it all, some estery, almost sweetish flavors make themselves apparent.

M-Fully, creamy body, at times somewhat oily, but really more like a thick milkshake. Wonderful. Carbonation was low, playing well off the full body.

D-This beer is a winter seasonal, so I didn't expect to have an opportunity to drink it while I was in New York. However, the Peculiar Pub had bottles of it, and knowing it's high ABV would allow for increased shelf life of this brew, I went for it. It was a rainy day, and relatively cold, so this beer went down very nicely, warming me subtley as I chatted with my table. Very drinkable, very complex.
