Pours a velvety, syrupy jet black with tan head,

smell- rich milk chocolate, think hot chocolate/ Swiss Miss. a touch of licorice and wood

taste- Chocolate bar up front, pure hot chocolate. I've never tasted such an overtly chocolately beer-- and it's very, very good. Vanilla, a touch of black licorice. Mildly sweet, but then emerge notes of oak, some dark fruits (fig and some cherry), and slightly bitter but lush roasted barley. Finishes with dark chocolate, dark roasted barley and a touch of hop citrus. The tongue is coated with the roasted flavors and warmth of the booze.

Feel- velvety with some bite from the roasted barley and hops. Booze is detectable but fairly mellow. Not very heavy-bodied

overall- For a long time I never gave this a chance. I was certainly pleasantly surprised when I got this on tap after a few other beers I wanted had been kicked. I am very impressed with the richness of the chocolate, while maintaining its balance and not being overly sweet and displaying a great overall flavor profile. Fantastic brew

This is an outstanding beer....Amazing....the brewer gets an A+++ for nailing what the intention is/was. The beer poured an opaque black with 1/2 finger of rich tan head that laced all the way down the sniffer glass. The scent was Nestle Quick....sorry to name brand but the smell was NESTLE QUICK!!!! The taste was a semi sweet chocolate mixed with a slight roasty malt and enough bittering hops to cleanse the pallet. The mouthfeel was a full bodied ale with smooth carbonation. Overall....awesome...a perfect desert beer...a perfect winter warmer....a perfect fireside chat beer...did I mention it smelled like NESTLE QUICK!!!
