Poured a deep, jet black with a tanish head that didn't last all that long. Spots of lacing, but mostly a few errant bubbles stuck to the side. The nose is the best thing this beer has going for it. Rich, yet soft notes of sweet chocolate, wet brown sugar, and perhaps a slight note of sweet rolled oats. The taste was a little thin and indistinct. There was some hint of sweet chocolate again, slightly bitter finish, but no explosion of flavors like the name would imply. The mouthfeel was also thin but I don't think that detracted from this one. I think that for the ABV this beer is quite sessionable, but not something to pull out of your cellar and impress that friend who you haven't seen in 20 years.
