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.

Looks magnificent, brown foamy head with a rich black body. Smell: the smoothest molasses, roasted overtones.
Taste. Sublime, i like mine on the cold side a tad but that caramel drizzle really starts to blend into the malty, licorice, creating a chocolate medley.

Incredibly enjoyable. Bought for my girl but I couldn't resist
