look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured in the light, this looks like dark coffee or root beer cascading into the glass. Once there, it seems pitch black and has a substantial foamy head that is a gradient from nearly brown near the beer fading to a tan near the top. The head retains well and leaves droopy lacing that eventually settles back down into the beer save a few islands along the edge of the glass. The smell is of chocolate and deep malts from well roasted barley. There is anise and plum and herbs and rooty confectioners chocolate all up in my grill when I’m smelling this. There is just so much in the nose here. The taste is so balanced and fantastic, I don’t know where to begin. It rich and creamy and properly carbonated with chocolate very pervasively, but not overly strongly exploding across the palate. There are deep rooty essences and a non-descript fine bitterness throughout, nothing floral. It tastes like powdery chocolate, but totally no artificial. And I want to gulp this beer; dangerously so. This is a superb after dinner beer. The mouthfeel is creamy and crisp, soft and dark, but very present. This is an exceptionally drinkable beer; exceptional all around.
