Killer brew. About $20/bottle in Virginia but well worth it. Great for dessert.

Poured from the bottle into a large snifter glass.

Large creamy tan two to nearly three fingers tall, almost with a faint yellow sheen to it, creamy and slightly whipped up. Body color manages a very dark brown walnut, with barely an edge of burnt red color to it. Very nice looking beer.

The aroma is big, and full of thick chocolate. Delicious milky and powdery malt like Whoppers candy sweetness but much more subdued flavor. Powdered milk sweetness a bit also, and not much else. Thick and rich, slight hints of candy sweetness, but not hinting syrupy or overly sweet. Very nice bouquet going on here.

Palate brings some real nice qualities. No big surprises except in mouthfeel. The body manages a thick roast but lots of playful carbonation, almost giving a peppery and biting mouthfeel. Chocolate and candy like milk flavors hit the palate on first sip and linger long after the first swallow. Slight mild bitterness on the finish, complimenting and still managing a nice light porter quality.

A real easy drinking and tasty brew, the chocolate comes out a little candy and cheap in a way, but everything else works out nicely.

Big chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Silky rich and thick mouthfeel with fine bubbles.
