Smell: Really rich hazelnut coffee, vanilla creamer, vanilla wafers, milk chocolate, toasted coconut, toffee candy, burnt brown sugar. This beer smells super rich and reminds me of dessert.

Taste: Right upfront it’s a mix of vanilla wafers, vanilla coffee creamer and a touch of hazelnut coffee. The hazelnut coffee starts to get pretty prominent as the beer moves into the middle of the tongue and becomes the dominant flavor throughout the rest of the tasting experience. In the mid palette I also get a little bit of milk chocolate and toffee. In the finish I get a toasted coconut cake frosting flavor along with more of that hazelnut coffee and a touch of bittersweet chocolate. The beer isn’t as sweet on the palette as the nose lead on, but this still leans towards the sweet side.

Feel: Medium to full body, really creamy and smooth. It’s a really nice mouthfeel.

Overall: A really solid beer that I’m glad I got to try. I wish the taste was as rich and sweet as the nose was, but overall this is really solid. If you can find this for a decent price it is worth picking up and trying.

Pours black with a half inch beige head that settles to a ring fairly quickly and left little lacing. Smells of dark chocolate, pecans, vanilla and roasted malts. Taste is very artificial kind of like a liquefied tootsie roll, with pecans, vanilla and a himt of char and leather. Light to medium bodied for the style, lightly carbonated, dry finish and a slightly watery mouth feel.

Truth in advertising I guess - says it's a pecan cake beer made with "natural and artificial flavors," and it tastes like a sweet stout with a slightly chemical pecan smell and flavor. Not bad for what it is, but I prefer my beer to be beer and my fake pecan flavors to stay in candy bars.

Pouring the beer into a glass*, I can already smell the chocolate from a foot away. So much chocolate aroma - like opening a great IPA, but for chocolate. But when I come in for a closer, deeper, sniff, I also pick up notes of coffee, and a hint of vanilla. It brings to mind the smell of chocolate fudge, or a great chocolate brownie.

Taking a sip, I get all of that dark chocolate flavor, but with surprising depth. This is not your standard chocolate beer that tastes like cocoa powder in water. This tastes like rich, decadent, dark chocolate fudge. There's a slight sweetness, a bit of toffee, and a bit of burnt sugar on the finish.

This is a desert beer that's not too sweet (I'm looking at you, Southern Tier Creme Brule). The alcohol is dangerously hidden, but rounds out the beer well. Just like rich chocolate fudge, you can only consume a bit at a time, but you keep coming back for more.

In a world of so many great imperial stouts, I think this one stands out for being fantastic.

*Poured from a can into a Chimay goblet.

Tasted in a Spiegelau stout glass from a 12 fl oz can on April 28, 2018. Thick, rich and excessively decadent chocolate cake, caramel and nut flavors and aromas. Recommended.

Look: Black as night. Poured a bit thinner than I usually like for imperial stouts and had a little more carb than expected.
Nose: Wow, you can smell this beer sitting a foot away from it, and it smells amazing, like a decadent chocolate cake that should be sitting in a pâtisserie.
Taste: Smells like chocolate cake, tastes like chocolate cake. A cake explosion on the front, but leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste that lingers for a bit too long. Perhaps from the pecans.
Mouthfeel: A little over-carbonated and not very viscous. I expected a thicker beer for something that smells like it does.

Pretty solid overall, but not as decadent tasting as it smells, and that was a bit disappointing.

Can into snifter appears black with dark khaki head spotty to webby lace.

Aroma is sweet like caramel, nutty and roasty with chocolate.

Taste is sweet with a licorice sorta note before almost a cola quality and dusty grain/nutty aftertaste.

Medium to full body and modestly carbonated. This is a fairly rich brew and the alcohol is well integrated.

Thanks to bl00 for this one from NBS BIF #007. This beer is just called NOA on the label, and doesn't seem to fit any of the variants listed here. If this is a duplicate, please combine.

12oz can poured into 10oz fluted tulip. Poured a solid black color with just a thin cap of tan head that had no retention or lacing.

The aroma featured a rich chocolate aroma upfront, with light malts underneath.

On the tongue there was a harsh roast flavor that wasn't in the nose. otherwise very similar to the scent.

The body was a bit thinner than I prefer in the style, but still solid.

Drinkability was hurt a wee bit by the harsh roast, but was still fundamentally enjoyable. Overall, a nice enough brew, worth a shot if you see it.

Dark appearance with tan head. Aroma is a mild coco and chocolate. Taste is a coco and chocolate that is definitely reminds me of artificial flavor and not just color.
