Very dark brown with a deep beige head (light brown?). Three-finger head from the pour, excellent ring lace on the glass side with each sip.

Strong cocoa aromas, almost like hot chocolate mix. Some sweetness to the smell. Some dark malts come through; no discernible hop.

Very chocolatey taste with very little sweetness. I like how the beer transitions to a subtle hop flavor. Perhaps the only flaw is that aftertaste is so brief. Thick body, similar to hot chocolate. Appropriate carbonation. Nice complexity with lots of differing tastes coming through at different points of the taste. The balance at the swallow is something special.

Do you like chocolate? If so, this is a great beer. It does not have the usual overdone flavors, just a wonderfully balanced brew. If you're expecting a dry stout, this will be quite distracting. Go with cocoa flow and enjoy.

A beer haiku for you:

Dessert in a glass!
Just don't imbibe it too fast;
Chocoholics smile!

A great tasting representation of what a digestif beer should be like: whether enjoyed after a meal or alone as a special treat, this is a unique beer that is a credit to not only the stout family but to a brewery that pays tribute to the art of beer making with many of its selections. Cheers!
