Pours near black with a brown head that doesn't trail the glass. The smell is full of sweet cream and chocolate, very heavy. The taste is equally heavy with chocolate being the star of the beer with lighter notes of coffee on the end. Very decadent but overall a nice after dinner beer. For more fun, make a black and tan with this and Well's Banana Bread Beer for a chocolate covered banana black and tan, really tasty.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Deeply dark with a heavy 2 finger head of dirty tobacco foam head supported by light streaming CO2 comprised of tiny bubbles. the head has good retention but eventually dies off to a sticky lace cover and clings to the side of the glass.

Smell - Very heavy chocolate aroma as you would expect from the name of the beer. Some toffee like aroma and some bitter coffee hints in the back end.

Taste - Deeply chocolaty and very well balanced between sweet and bitter elements. There are some burnt characteristics in here but the beer is essentially exactly what it promises to be. Also some very sweet Rum or Porte like elements are in here... I wish I could be more specific in this respect but I am not much of a drinker when it comes to anything other than beer but this one does reminds me of rum in some ways.

MF - Mildly metallic and astringent at the start in the mouth this beer is medium bodied and has plenty of tingle with a drying finish. The beer is also pretty creamy as it goes down.

Overall - A very good beer that seems to do more or less exactly what it is setting out to do. Well balanced and a pretty decent mouth feel this beer is one I would recommend to others and will actively seek out again. Seems to pair well with sweet dishes.
