Poured with wild abandon into a pint glass to reveal a pitch black body with huge coffee coloured head looking like a caramel mousse.
Rich deep aroma's of chocolate and brandy, boozy goodness all round with roasts.
Chocolate liquor tasting deep rich dark chocolate without veering into overbearing bitterness or coffee tastes.
Solid mouthfeel with being heavy perfect carbonation.
Damn good, damn damn good.

A winter '11-'12 bottle poured into a tulip. 1.5 finger khaki head on a pitch black body. This thing is a great looking RIS.
Lots of the namesake chocolate aroma abounds. There is a definite alcohol presence and a slight roastyness. Dark fruity/raisin thing going on as well.
Chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit flavors with quite a bit of bitterness at the end. A lot less chocolate than I would have expected.
Nice amount of carbonation to move this big body along.

A: Absolute black with tan head dissipating to a thin film.
S: Maltiness and molasses together with espresso and cocoa powder. There is a slight sweetness from the malts and hints of darks fruits, such as dried cherries and plums.
T: Taste follows the smell, presenting first with sweet molasses followed by espresso and cocoa powder. Finishes with a bitterness on the tongue.
M: Full bodied with oily coating. Slight heat from the alcohol, but not overpowering.
O: A flavourful and filling beer, best served with a rich dark chocolate dessert.
