12 oz. bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Pours black as night, head drops down quickly. Aroma is pretty complex, changes (for the better) as it warms. Slightly burnt malts, semi-sweet chocolate bordering on cocoa.

Mouthfeel is just superb. Smooth, smooth, smooooth with a perfect amount of carbonation. Incredibly rich and creamy.

I don't want to go too overboard about the taste, but I can't help myself. Simply one of the most delicious brews I've ever had.

Wonderful malt segueing into chocolate, sweet but not cloying, the balance between them is perfect. Nice dry finish with a quick and pleasant aftertaste is the only clue that there is any alcohol involved.

It struck me around halfway though my glass: If you're from New York City (and Brooklyn in particular, as am I) you'll understand this - It reminded me of a perfect chocolate eggcream.

Sip, close your eyes, and savor.

3.8/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle served in a shaker pint glass. Best before August 2014.

Appearance: Black with a thin tan head. Clear mahogany/ruby red at the edges when held up to the light. Some islands of lacing noted.

Smell: Not a lot of aroma to this. Some hints of roasted malts and burnt sugar but that's about it.

Taste: Toasted malt, hint of bittersweet chocolate, some toffee, and a tobacco/smoky bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, approaching creamy. Lively carbonation but not fizzy - scrubs the tongue but there is a hint of stickiness left.

Overall / Drinkability: Full flavored, interesting, and good with desert (chocolate peanut butter banana bread). I suspect it would be a very good base for ice cream floats and probably would go well with a burger also. Not sure I would want more than one per evening though, but I think I would definitely pick up a six pack next time I see it. Other than a weak aroma - a good beer.

3.43/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into an English pint glass

A- Black with several fingers width of head, nice lacing on the glass, good head retention

S - Predominantly smells of chocolate and roast malt, but the aroma is on the faint side

T - The taste itself is pleasant -- chocolate, neither too bitter nor too sweet.

M - The most noticeable characteristic was a very prickly carbonation which almost ruined the beer for me, hiding the pleasant taste and otherwise creamy, full mouthfeel. Swirling the beer for a bit to release some of the carbonation helped to calm the prickliness, after which the beer was more enjoyable.

O - If the carbonation were toned down a bit, this would be a very enjoyable and above average beer. With the distracting prickliness, it is just okay.
