Pours black with a finger of khaki foam. Head retention is okay with okay lacing left behind. Aroma is lovely milk and dark chocolate swirled together. There is a dash of dry, baker's chocolate as well. Flavor profile is one smooth chocolate bar. Toasted and roasted malts up front with an emphasis on smooth, buttery toasted malts. There is a hint of milk chocolate at the start that swells and grows generating a chocolate milk like flavor profile at the finish. Splendid smoothness throughout. Mouth feel is medium in thickness, with a buttery smooth, and creamy texture. Overall, a well crafted dessert beer. Despite being made as a dessert, it is still smooth throughout the flavor profile, delivering tasty chocolate notes along the way.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.

Almost solid black, medium light carbonation. Nice creamy solid feel,great bidy. Aroma is bakers bitter chocolate, molasses,raisins, and a bread/yeast smell. Taste is identical, high abv is warming but it doesn't dominate the flavor. I really enjoyed it for what it was, a very good dessert beer

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a speiglau stout glass.

Look is a pitch black with a tan head.

Aroma is light malt, but not much chocolate.

Taste again is kinda subdued malt but no real malt or hops.

Black dark rich looking pour with foamy tan head that didn't linger long. Moderate lacing. Strong chocolate and roasty malts on the nose and the mouth follows with vanilla, caramel and a sweet taste, a true dessert beer. Very easy to drink this smooth full bodied beer!

Well, they weren't kidding when they called this a dessert beer. Those with sensitive palates, particularly to a sugary sweetness (or chocolate), might strongly object to this one, but it's tasty enough as long as you know what you're in for. But please bear in mind, for the love of God, this beer *is* dessert, not something which should accompany it. Don't go on a suicide mission.
