4.25/5 rDev +3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Black as night, but not completely opaque. Damn close though. Rocky mocha colored head with some bubbles on the surface. It fades eventually to a medium ring around the edges. Lacing is oily if at all present but this does not detract from the experience. Given the 9% ABV, this is somewhat expected. 4.5
S: Dark fruit (raisin, plum, fig), molasses, brown sugar, vague hint of roast, sweet milk chocolate and a bit of booze. The more I smell this, the more complex it becomes. This smells delicious and decadent! 4.5
T&M: Lots of flavor here. Deep, rich and velvety come to mind as words for how to describe this. Milk chocolate, but not overly milky, molasses, fig, plum, raisins. I'm not sure but possibly some dark cherry too. Carbonation is appropriate for the style, and body is medium thick, texture is silky smooth. 4.5 / 4.5
O: I wasn't expecting this to be so damn good in every sensory aspect. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and would actively seek it out again. This was received as an extra but can't for the life of me remember from who. Thank you to whoever it was. This is excellent! The only thing I'd change is perhaps a bit less dark fruit flavor and a bit more maltiness and roast. Otherwise, excellent! 4.5
