I've been putting this beer off for while because of the artificial color/flavor. But I am going to trying to be as objective as possible.

Look, solid deep black stout.
Smell, cocoa puffs straight off the nose, with some peanut butter mixed in.
Taste, chocolate up front, followed by peanut nut bitterness, and a deep dry bitterness on the end.
Feel, smooth and dry. Too dry.

Overall, different than what I expected. Not necessarily bad, but kind of tastes like a chocolate cereal.

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.
