3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a massive tan head and a ton of carbonation.
S: The nose is rich and chocolate filled. Great sweet milk chocolate notes, vanilla, and a more subtle roasted character and a dark caramel note as well.
T: Like the nose, plenty of sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla. A more pronounced roasted flavor along with some slightly burnt notes.
M: The body is medium with a fairly high carbonation that actually works alright.
D: Not quite as good as Peche Mortel, but still nice. Definitely overcarbonated, but a vigorous pour and some time in the glass helps to smooth that out.

Bottle from Radiomgb, thanks! Almost black and opague. Roast, vanilla and chocolate in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with vanilla, pear and chocolate. Some roastbitterness in the finish. Luscious and very drinkable. Cacao in the aftertaste. Only a bit too simple to get a 4+.

Bottle poured a clear dark brown nearly black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of milk chocolate, vanilla, light roastiness and light coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla, roastiness and a hint of esspresso with a smooth dry lingering milk chocolate finish. Very tasty dessert beer would go great with a great chocolate cream pie.
