This is an absolutely beautiful looking beer. Pitch black with more than a finger worth of caramel/mocha colored head.
The smell is deliciously complex. Smells of chocolate and coffee are the big stars but then they are backed by notes of vanilla, char and barrel.
The taste comes in with the coffee being the strongest but the chocolate being a great partner next to it. Then the background of barrel and vanilla do a great job adding to dimensions.
The feeling is a smooth and creamy greatness with a very comforting warmness. Getting through the creamy head to the beer is a treat. Great carbonation and full body.
Overall, this was a treat. Would be very happy to have more. Literally don't know what I would dock it for. Such greatness.
