TEMP: Cellared @ approx. 50 degrees
Pours BLACK. No light comes through this one. Beautiful. Massive dense head that looks like frothed coffee. A steady hand can pour this so that the head rises in a column right out of the glass.
Smells of very good chocolate, sweetened grains (rice or oatmeal, maybe), and malty goodness.
Tastes of a heavy chocolate dose in a cup of very light coffee. Just sweet and tasty goodness. Like you squeezed beer out of a chocolate bar.
Very nice and creamy in the mouth. I like a little creamier taste, though. Took a little off of the rating for this. It's very good, just not great.
This remains one of my all-time favorite beers. It can be enjoyed on a special occasion, as a dessert beverage, or as a session beer (at least for me, personally, it can).
