Near black in color with no light penetrating the glass. Thick, dense beige head which never fully recedes. The lace is a combination of slippery blankets and permanent spots.

Rich dark chocolate aroma. Nearly no chalkiness nor coffee, just the powerful smell of sweet cocoa.

Very smooth beer -- rich, almost oily, with a low, low level of carbonation. The strong alcohol is completely hidden by the deep semisweet chocolate flavor. The finish is sweeter and the aftertaste is brief. But the intensity of the beer lingers a long time in the mind. In short, this is a very special beer.

On tap at Chickie's & Pete's AC. Nitro makes a bigger and longer lasting head and added a creamer mouthfeel. If you like regular CBS you'll like the nitro version even more. For me this years CBS is a bit too sweet.
