A - Solid black with a creamy mocha head. A ring of brown foam and patchy oil slicks remain after the head fades.

S - Vinous, milk chocolate, roasty malt, cocoa, vanilla, dark fruit, light alcohol, earthy but the only thing I can think of to describe that aspect is vinous.

T - Boozy, dark fruits, vinous, red wine tannins, bittersweet chocolate, burnt sugars, tart berry and cherry and more lingering dark fruits.

M - Medium body and creamy. There is a bit of weight from the heavier roasted notes but it still feels light and thin at times. Warming from alcohol.

D - Haven't liked many Belgian stouts I have tried. Typically too roasty or too yeasty. This is a wonderful blend of the 2 styles. A bit boozy but nice. Needs time to warm up.

Tiny pours black into the glass with a very small light tan head. A few spots of lace are seen on the glass.

The aroma grows as the beer warms. It's malty with notes of chocolate, roasted malt, nuts and dark fruit. A touch of medicinal alcohol is also present.

Each sip of this medium to full bodied beer is velvety on the palate with a firm carbonated fizz. The flavor is rich and malty. Chocolate, roasted malt, peat, a touch of smoke, and dark fruit. It finishes mildly bitter with a touch of citrus. Once gone the chocolate and dark fruit lingers on the palate.

Lots of flavor in this beer especially as it warms. It hides the nearly 12% abv very well.

An extremely dark pour. Solid black. Maybe something lighter, like dark brown, around the edges but only if you're on Mercury looking directly at the sun. There's only a thin head, less than a finger, with the first pour. It's not much, but it's brown and doesn't retain all that well. Given the high ABV, not all that surprising.

Strong smell of alcohol. Bittersweet chocolate and a ton of roasted grains add to the mix. There's also a noticeable fruit scent, likely from the Belgian yeast strain.

The taste is really exceptional. It's a monster of a beer, but no one single flavor overpowers anything else. Lots of malt, I'm thinking several varieties caramel and chocolate. A bit of charred, roasty malt. Kind of has a burnt coffee taste, which I find appealing in a beer like this. Has to be a couple kinds of chocolatey things in here, based on the mouthfeel. Oh yeah, alcohol is certainly present.

Has a grainy feel. Strong alcohol, but not outrageous. Sweet and bitter chocolate. There's an earthy, full bodied feel. Hot finish, along with a faint bitter finish that's slightly dry, but makes your mouth water.

A sipper if there ever was one. Drink slowly, or better yet, share. Particularly at the holidays. It's a great beer. Relatively smooth given the strength, it won't punch you in the gut with hops or alcohol, but after a couple snifters, you'll know you've been drinking.
