Nice dark almost black with a nice tan head and nice lacing. Smells like Vanilla, fruity, licorice, sweet, boozy, salt caramel. Shallow taste, thin, ,weird aftertaste that finishes quickly. Still has drinkability. overall good drinkabililty.

Nice dark brown/ruby color. Flavors of chocolate and coffee blend well with a slight fruity and chestnut flavor. This beer is not sweet and has moderate carbonation. Good winter ale. I'd prefer something a little sweeter with less carbonation, but definitely worth another purchase.

Had this on tap at the Red Stag.
L: Bright brown under a 1” moussey tan foam cap that hugs the side of the glass. S: chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit aromas.
T: Light roast, chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit, a hint of coffee. No harsh or burnt flavors.
F: Medium to medium full body, medium carbonation, very soft in the mouth.
O: A good beer to drink while sitting by the fire.

Canned on 12/11/14.

Appearance: Pitch black with a shiny clarity about it. Frothy finger of tan foam.

Aroma: Just a nice burst of dark chocolate.

Taste: Those cocoa nibs don't mess around, huge chocolate flavor in this one. Respectable malt base that provides a clean somewhat creamy flavor along with a hint of bitter black coffee in the finish. Not really getting the raisins or brown sugar but the vanilla is in there somewhere. Just enough hop bitterness to balance without drawing to much attention to itself. Despite the lack of any alcohol burn, it'd still peg this for higher than 6.5% ABV due to the depth of flavor. The only downside is the aftertaste of charred malts (black coffee, bitter cocoa, etc.), which distract from the otherwise balanced flavor.

Mouthfeel: Between medium and full in body with slightly aggressive carbonation. Good drinkability.

Final Thoughts: Although the brewery would consider this one expired because it is more than three months old (gotta love a good quality system when it comes to fresh beer!) I found the flavors to be very good all around. Would I drink it again? Sure.
