look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Black as night. Light mocha head, pencil thin. dissipates in 1-2 min.

S - Cocoa, dark bitter chocolate and vanilla. wish it were more potent. maybe use milk chocolate?

T - Initially smooth cocoa, lite roast, coffee/expresso. hop level is moderate/low. finish contains slight bitter taste. 10 ABVs masked very well.

M - light froth, viscosity is low, coffee taste lingers

O - Really nice and smooth. I do wish a bit more milk chocolate was used. It seems all chocolate used was the dark cocoa. Milk chocolate might increase scent. Overall all flavors are blended really well. Very nice. could definitely have one more of these.

Poured from a bomber into a 16 oz chalice. Jet black with an brown, very thin head that is gone quickly leaving a sparse ring around the edge of the glass. The strong aroma of dark, dark chocolate hits your nose immediately, like liquid chocolate mousse; sweet coffee overtones; outstanding. Roasted walnuts, caramel, plum, slight bitterness fades to sweet malty after taste, warm alcohol. Heavy and sticky, low carbonation. This one has it all; a complex blend of flavors and aromas. I expected the chocolate to dominate the taste like the aroma, but I was pleasantly surprised when the other flavors came to the forefront. An amazing beer.

On draft > 13oz Tulip glass
A - Pours absolutely black, thick sticky 1 finger head with a nice caramel color to it, hangs on for a while.
S - Smells like everything chocolate thats good. Chocolate covered coffee beans, vanilla, slight roasted malt, chocolate syrup.
T - Chocolate everywhere on everything at once! Creamy smooth, roasted coffee beans, a little vanilla.
M - Huge full thick body, very sweet, but not overly sugary/syrupy, flavor hangs on to your palate for a good while.
O - Hands down the best chocolate beer out there, excellent desert beer, It is exactly what one would dream of a chocolate beer being. Southern Tier did things right on this brew.
