Had poured from pint can, bottom stamped “CANNED ON 03/01/19 FRICK YOU,” gift from friend, into nonic pint.

This is one of the darkest beers I have ever seen, but have you ever tried to look through a cake? Aroma of chocolate cake, and beer delivers dark chocolate, grainy cake texture, and nuts—German chocolate cake.

poured into a taster glass via draft at Other Half's Pastry Town (3/16/2019)

color is motor oil black with tan foam

smell is baker's chocolate and caramel

taste is chocolate mixed in with subtle metallic..uggh

low carbonation

mouthfeel is full and sticky

not sure if this was a bad batch or what..but the metallic taste overpowered everything and left a bad taste in my mouth (obviously)..I 'd hope to try this again soon

This one pours a very dark black color, with a small oily head, and not much lacing.

This smells like some actually approachable diabeetus on the nose, with coconut infused cake frosting, high quality melted chocolate, caramel, maple, and coffee creamer.

This is definitely very sweet, but it doesn't ever get too cloying. The coconut is done quite well, it's sweet, and authentic - and doesn't ever get to be artificial. There's lots of chocolate too, and some caramelized sugar, along with some vanilla/coffee cream type character.

This is creamy and rich, and very thick for the ABV. It's surprisingly drinkable.

This is really quite good. It's not as tooth-meltingly sweet as a lot of Angry Chair's beers.

I deleted my original review for a bottle I enjoyed November 2017 that was aged against advice and didn't fare well because of it. This review based on a relatively fresh crowler reflects a significantly different and improved experience.

In this stark black viscous brew with a creamy mocha ring, I actually get notes of caramel, making it closer to a samoa flavor. I get more coconut on the nose than in flavor, but notes of sweet chocolate complete the profile in this round, medium body. A mild soft froth precedes a dusty dry finish that brings out a touch of dark roasted malt.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a J. Wakefield Brewing OG teku glass.

A: Pours a dark, dark brown that's just barely translucent. A low amount of visible carbonation and a thin tan head that lasts pretty well.

S: Chocolate, dark roasted malts, and some light coconut. Caramel and toasted toffee. A light char to the malt body. Reasonably complex, but it's not anything unexpected.

T: Dark roasted malts with a big roasty character. Lots of dark chocolate. Bits of caramel, coconut, and a mild hop bitterness as well. Cacao nibs and vanilla. Sticky sweet chocolate in the hang. But the big roasty character dominates.

M: A medium body for style - sticky mouthfeel but not crazy thick. Low but expected carbonation sensation, and the alcohol is noticeable but not overly hot at all.

O: Not a bad beer, but not great. This bottle, at least, isn’t what I hoped for. There's less coconut and (maybe because of that) the roasted bitterness stands out more. Decent.

Super solid and dangerously drinkable - this is one of those beers I would stock the fridge with if I could. Once again I envy my brother living in Tampa.
