This is a good beer but over the years it seems the quality of this brew has declined. When this first hit the beer scene it was a chocolate masterpiece but a few years later it turned into a booze bomb. If this returns to its old form, I will change my rating and seek it out.

Bottom Line: Not sure.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Black, opaque in color. Pours almost no head, but agitating arises a deep tan, almost mocha color head, about one finger thick. Moderate lacing on sides of glass.
Smell: Dark chocolate, almost bitter, but also some more subtle sweet chocolate notes. Dark fruits soaked in alcohol, with almost an astringent, tannin like quality to the nose.
Taste: Bittersweet chocolate, dark chocolate candy bar. Subtle sweetness and mild roasted malt flavor. Dark fruits, astringent and bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Moderate creaminess and silky feel, medium type mouthfeel. Lower carbonation, very smooth, also slightly sticky.
Overall: Rich flavors blend together nicely, dark bitter chocolates, slight roast, astringent tannin type bitterness. Underneath there is a pleasant creaminess and sweetness that almost pokes through. A smooth drinking beer that masks the alcohol beautifully, and enjoyable and delicatable choice.
