500ml bottle poured into Sam Adams pint glass.

Pours a very dark brown-red with almost no head, just a thin scrim of tan bubbles that leave sparse blotches of lace as it recedes.

Smells of fresh coffee grounds, dark chocolate coated berries, molasses, roasted walnut and faint herbal hops.

Tastes of rich dark chocolate, creamed coffee, mixed berry fruitiness, more roasted walnut, burnt brown sugar, sweet black licorice and more gentle herbal hops.

Feels surprisingly light. Medium bodied with zippy carbonation. Finishes dry with mildly warming alcohol.

Verdict: Highly recommended. A great beer after coming in from the cold.

Dark brown color with mocha head. Smells like chocolate milk all the way. Taste is sweet and chocolatey, milky, a bit roasty and bitter on the finish. Body is quite heavy and smooth. I also get a bit of warming alcohol. Really nice overall, sweet, milky and chocolatey.
