3.5/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 45 degrees
Opens with a very decent 'pop/hiss'.
Jesus! A very easy pour just gave me a massive head of more than four-fingers worth of craggy, milk chocolate colored foam. Retention is great and the lacing thick, clumpy, and quite sticky. This sitting on top of a very dark brown liquid.
I'm definitely getting a good amount of cocoa in the smell. Nice presence of milk chocolate, also. Good notes of ground coffee. Brown sugars and a touch of dark fruits. Very light hint of alcohol.
This is like a good cup of chocolate coffee. The slightly heavy-handed presence of dark roasted coffee dominates. It's followed, very closely, by sweet milk chocolate and cocoa powder notes. Nice lactose sweetness. Mild notes of vanilla. A slight touch of oakiness.
Good, solid, medium bodied beer. Sadly, I think that it should/could be so much more. It's very smooth and has a nice creaminess to it. It could just be so much better with some more body.
I'd probably drink this one again, if given the chance. I won't go out of my way to track it down, though. More of a dessert beer than anything.

3.31/5 rDev -7.8%

Black in color,but some light does manage to peek through. A fingernail thin layer of khaki colored head is present and doesn't cover quite the entire top. Light notes of chocolate are all I get with the aroma. I get predominately sweet chocolate and a light,neutral hoppiness in the front of the palate. The mouth is a bit sticky and viscous. Somehow the chocolate and the hoppiness comes off a bit cloying. Sweet and slightly bitter is odd.
