Pours mostly black. There are lighter shades of brown peeking around the sides, but it's safe to call it black. The head forms gradually, up to a finger thick, with a light brown shade of multisized bubbles....resembling a root beer head. Retains well and has moderate lacing.

A little smoke in the nose to go with faint licorice, caramel, toffee and chocolate. Nothing in the nose is overwhelming or aggressive.

While the taste isn't bad, there's an artificial note to the chocolate. Maybe that's the 'double' part of the equation. It tastes like chocolate, but more like chocolate syrup. Lots of roasty grain notes. Any hop presence is muted by the malts.

It's fairly creamy and has plenty of sweet, but there's still that aspect of chocolate syrup that I can't get past. It's still got a nice feel to it, plus there's some high ABV to help out. Fairly thick and full bodied, it's got a bitter hotness in the syrupy finish.

It's a decent beer. I bought a four pack and am happy I did. Should be careful as this site lists the ABV as 8.1% as does their website, but the bottle shows 8.5% so sipping is advised.
