Looks like the other variants with a faint tan head. Nice lacing. Chocolate and vanilla on the nose but not too heavy or artificial, although no roast. The palate is similar - milk chocolate is dominant and masks the roast and other flavors. It adds a sweetness quality in the absence of the other additions.

12oz bottle. Opened alongside the other Deconstructeds. Snifter glass. Dark cola brown body, one finger offwhite head. Fair retention and lacing. Smell is a bit of astringent cocoa, milk chocolate, a bit of dark chocolate, light earth and espresso. Flavour follows; espresso, cocoa, light milk chocolate, a fair bit of dark chocolate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium fuller bodied, good carbonation, solid creamy chocolate finish with a fair bit of boozy heat which detracted from this one more than anything else. #3 of #4 of the deconstructeds for me.

12oz bottle. Couldn’t find a bottled on date. Bought from AJ’s market om Soquel CA. Poured into hotel room glass.

Pour: deep, deep brown with a 1-2 finger golden tan head that only very slowly dissipates. Lots of lacing throughout. Really beautiful. Might be the best I’ve seen.

Nose: no surprise, cocoa. Not real pungent or in your face. Very subtle.

Taste: this is like a liquid dark chocolate. I’ve had hot chocolate made with dark chocolate and this is the beer version of that. Absolute perfect balance between sweet and bitter chocolate. Maybe a touch of hop bitterness on the backend that lingers and reminds you this is beer, in case the 11.8% ABV doesn’t.

Mouthfeel: the best I’ve ever had or at least the best in recent memory. Rich, creamy, smooth. coats your tongue, oily, etc. Moderate carbonation that provides the beautiful head but still creamy. Like drinking liquid chocolate marshmallow. Absolutely one of mu ATFs.

Overall: this beer is amazing. I thought PAA Bomb, Paradise, Pirate Bomb, Bourbon Paradise were amazing but this might be even better. Now, I’m a huge dark chocolate fan so maybe just that it’s right up my alley. But, I would encourage you to try this if you see it. I will be revisiting the bottle store where I found this and buying more tomorrow.
