Pour is dark as night and a mahogany dense head.

Smell is of quality rich chocolate syrup and hints of vanilla.

Nothing pretentious here. Taste matches smell except this choklat drink is for the big people. You get mild alcohol burn, but hey look at the ABV.

Creamy milk chocolate coats the palate. No chalkiness, not syrupy at all and not really toot sweet. Alcohol masterfully articulated.

Big bomber you'll want to share. Nice sipper after dinner in lieu of a port. This blows Rogue Dbl chocolate out of the water. This brew holds true to style, hence high marks. A tremendously tremendous craft!

22oz bottle split with my wife.

A: Pours in a solid stream of black ooze. Thin ring of mocha head. Nice legs.

N: Chocolate syrup. Big surprise there, really. Vanilla extract and tons more of the milk chocolate. There are hints of malt and then again..syrup.

T: Bitter chocolate mixed with the syrup. Surprisingly bitter and has an unpleasant chalky taste. Has some smoke and leather elements. Can’t tell if I like it.

M: Pleasantly carbonated with a decently thick body. Alcohol is well hidden.

O: A strange concoction that’s not as sweet as you’d expect and not as complex as you might want. Not great. Oh well.

750ml bottle served in a tulip glass.

A: Pours a brown to black color forming a medium bubbled tan head with low retention and lots of spotty lacings left in the glass

S: Strong smell of dark chocolate. Impressive. Vanilla, roasted malts, cofffe, earthy yeasts and some wood notes

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Again, very strong notes of dark chocolate. Roasted malts, vanilla, coffee, wood, brown bread, wood, earthy yeasts. End in mainly made of a mild roasted bitterness. A bit milky too

M: Creamy and heavy body. Low carbonation. Dark chocolate aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. Very smooth beer. A masterpiece
