Out of a bottle into my tulip.

A – Deep dark black with an inch of milk chocolate head that settled down to a nice sheen. Clingy lacing down the glass.

S – Mocha, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, dark fruits and vanilla.

A – Roasted malts out of the gate. Nice mix of chocolate flavors to follow. Reminds me a bit of a malted milk ball. Touch of vanilla and toffee with caramel. Little bit of a bitter coffee flavor at the end. You can feel the alcohol at the finish.

M – Medium bodied and extremely creamy mouthfeel. Coats the palate and leaves a nice sweetness. Moderate carbonation.

O – Very nice all around. Nice rich flavor that is not overbearing. Sweet but not cloying. You certainly feel the ABV which is the way it should be. As it warms up it just gets better and better.

Part of the amazing Blackwater Series.

Pours out a pitch black with an extremely dark mocha looking head.

The aroma is pure chocolate; milk and dark chocolate, some caramel sweetness, a hint of vanilla and some nice roasty notes.

The taste is rich and complex without being overly sweet or bitter. Tons of milk chocolate and bittersweet dark chocolate notes dominate the beer. There is some subtle vanilla notes, a little bit of caramel/toffee and a decent amount of roasty malt notes.

The body is full and the mouthfeel is extremely rich and creamy.

There is no alcohol taste or smell and only a very small hint of warming as it goes down.

This beer lives up to the name and tastes like liquid chocolate with a decent amount of sweetness and bitterness that balances everything out. An excellent beer and not too expensive.
