Poured from bottle into a snifter

Appearance – The beer pours an almost pitch black color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is actually heavies to of a roasted malt smell and not chocolate as I would have anticipated. It does however also have a milk chocolate smell that carries with it a lactose and vanilla sweetness. A little bit of a caramel smell and a hint of a darker fruit is there as well.

Taste – Unlike the nose, the taste begins with a huge and smooth milk chocolate bar like taste with tons of milky lactose flavors and a big vanilla presence. This chocolate flavor remains massive throughout the entire taste creating a fantastically smooth milk chocolate flavor throughout. There is a moderate roastiness upfront that gains just a hint of intensity toward the end. Some flavors of cherry and plum also develop on the tongue throughout the taste mixing with the milk chocolate and the roasted flavors to leave a delicious lightly fruited sweet milk chocolate bar flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is super thicker and creamy with a carbonation level that is low. The feel is amazing for the rich milk chocolate flavor so the brew coating the tongue in all the rich flavors and creating a very smooth and lush feel.

Overall – This is a delicious and decadent chocolate brew. The mix of big sweet chocolate with the fantastically smooth feel make for one very nice sipping dessert beer.

22 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Pours dark brown approaching black with 2 fingers of fluffy, light tan head. Excellent retention along with some very subtle light penetration along the edges.

Nose
Semi-sweet chocolate, raisin, licorice, cocoa and molasses.

Taste
Raisin and prune mingled with semi-sweet chocolate and powdered cocoa. Creamy milk along with notes of licorice and molasses. Finishes with a light earthy bitterness that never overrides the sweetness.

Mouthfeel
Full bodied, silky, creamy and smooth.

Overall
Chocolates and dark fruits mixed with a beautifully creamy and milky body. Impeccably smooth and easy drinking for 9.1%.

The nose is full of a malted milk chocolate ball, remember Whoppers, with some grain and chocolate malt.

The flavor is a dry chocolate malt, malted milk, roasted grain and barley, nuttiness and a sweet peanut brittle.

This is just sweet enough and just complex enough to be delicious.

Poured a dark brown to black color with over a finger of beige head. The nose had a touch of chocolate and a touch of coffee. The body was fairly hearty and smooth with some roast as well as a hint of maple syrup and the same touch of chocolate found in the nose. The alcohol presence did get a bit too much on the finish but overall this was a pleasurable drinking experience.

Poured into a standard pint glass: color is black, solid, dark, head is tan with fine to small bubbles with a head that presents about 3/4 inch thick and then lingers very very well with some lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is moderately strong with notes of roast, espresso, toast, light earthy hops, bitter cocoa.

Taste is where this beer comes to form - its simple, but well constructed and pleasing: nice roast, touch of espresso, bitter chocolate is not overdone, earthy/bitter hops are present but not detracting from the malt. The lactose smooths the flavors out some.

Mouthfeel is smooth, low carbonation, lingering full sweetness but just enough bitterness to counter.

Overall: a great brew, smooth sweetness plays well with the bitter cocoa and roast.
