A: Poured a dark, creamy brown with just a touch of tan head lingering around the edge of the glass.

S: The main note is a dark chocolate sweetness, but interwoven with that are notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of coconut.

T: The flavors echoed the aroma with a big dark chocolate sweetness, and notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and coconut. The flavors were all woven together wonderfully so you didn't get any one of them at once, but all of them together the whole time.

M: A nice full mouthfeel, and despite between rather sweet in flavor it didn't leave that characteristic stickiness on your palate.

O: On a recent trip to St. Louis this was definitely the stand out beer that I had all weekend. Truly a world class beer with flavors reminding me of some rather nice chocolate I have eaten before, Republic de Cacao. Definitely one of the best sweet stouts I have ever had.

This was my favorite beer at a cask event i went to hosted by @
2nd shift brewery. I normally dont care for beers on the sweet side. It is a very dark. Kinda gritty. But overall the taste is unbelievable. I am patiently waiting for its release this month.
