Served from a 22 oz. bomber into a snifter. First beer as part of a tasting session hosted by fellow BA CosmicEvan.

Appears a beautiful super dark brown... It has a small galactic swirl in the middle with a slight rim of sudsy foam.

Smells of chocolate, hints of coffee, not too overpowering a nose.

Tastes blends beautifully. I feel like there's an undercurrent of cherry working its way through some chocolate. There's a touch of booziness on the way out.

It's mouthfeel is wonderful. It's thick, viscous, and lays on the tongue forever. Excellent aftertaste. A standout element to this beer.

Overall an excellent beer. A truly generous share from CosmicEvan and a great way to kick off the tasting session.
