11.2oz bottle poured into a snifter
2015 vintage

A- pours a deep black color with a one-finger creamy khaki colored head that reduces quickly to leave just a ring around the edge of the glass

S- bold dark roasted/charred malt aroma up front with compliments of dark fruity notes of fig, prune & black cherry. Undertones of both cocoa and vanilla pop through the roasted malt, as well as hints of caramel & vanilla icing

T- dark roasted malt and dark fruit flavors follow the aroma, particularly prune and fig. Mid-palate gives some sweet notes of vanilla, cocoa/chocolate & caramel/toffee. The finish gives more prune and charred malt and lingers of chocolate and caramel

M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a thick and creamy mouthfeel that continues into a velvety silky finish, just a hint of alcohol warmth

O- more dark fruit than I was expecting, not my favorite of the series but still very good

Cloyingly sweet, had to drain-pour after about half a glass.

I was baffled by how thick this beer is - literally, it poured like a gloopy glass of mud. I don't what all was in there - I drank about half of the glass, and then started getting strange clumpy stuff on my tongue. While what I drank was delicious and wonderful, I don't think I'd buy another bottle - when you have to dump half of it, there's something wrong.

Not my favorite from the beer geek series. This beer has a very nice thick body. The vanilla ane cocoa are strong there and go along the sweetness of the beer. Not the most complex of the serie but for sure, that's dessert

Poured to a Duvel tulip glass.

A: The body is pitch black. The head is brown with a very good looking 1 finger thickness. It has some cool retention, even for the 11% ABV, and a good lacing.
S: The aroma is filled of fresh coffee, sweet chocolate and some vanilla. The aroma is really close to Omnipollo's Selassie, has the same components are also present but not as architected as in the swedish beer. Alcohol is easily felt.
T: The taste is really close to the aroma, as the fresh sweet coffee, milky chocolate and a very soft vanilla profile. The taste actually feels more balanced and more prominent as a whole than the aroma.
M: Body is medium to high. Alcohol is noticed of course. Bitterness is non-existent. High sweetness.
O: Nice desert beer. Not the best, but a very good one.

It is a very dark brown color with a tan head and some lace.
Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and oatmeal.
Great taste. Bittersweet chocolate, almost like eating fudge. Vanilla and oatmeal round out the taste.
A heavy-bodied beer. It would be a good dessert beer. I just made it a breakfast beer.
