Black with a lasting, medium, beige, lacy head. Beautiful and thick. Smells of sweet milk cream filled chocolate with lots of mocha. So much chocolate that it overpowered the chocolate smell of the chocolate I ate with it. Vanilla with caramel and lots of malt. Initial taste of roast that fills into rich chocolate milk and sweet malt and finishes with a bitter vanilla roasted character. Some warmth from the alcohol but you can’t taste the 10%abv at all. Heavy sweet with with a heavy roast finish. Medium to full oily body. No carbonation. The craftsmanship of this beer is excellent. Well balanced and delicious.

Beer is a pretty solid black with some tan head that faded and little lacing. Actually not great looking. Aroma is cocoa, cocoa and more cocoa. In there is a bit of coffee too. Taste is a good balance between sweet at the beginning and bitter at the end. There’s a boozy warming all the way through and almost rolls into your nose. Quite an experience.

750mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours black with a small tan head. Nose is intensely chocolatey, with cherry liqueur and Bailey’s. Flavour is full-bodied, rich and dessert-like, with milk chocolate, Bailey’s Irish cream, and cherry. Thick as fuck, with a creamy chocolate finish. Wow, what a beer. Delicious decadent treat.

Belle couleur noire avec un épais col beige qui se dissipe rapidement. Chocolat, lactose,café,Tabac,cacao, une petite touche chimique... le % d’alcool est bien caché. Je ne suis pas capable de dire si j’aime ou j’aime pas, C’est unique en son genre tous ce que je peux dire c’est que je ne vais pas en racheter... Tres suresté selon moi...

Nearly black pour with a finger of mocha head that leaves a good layer of lace. Chocolate dominates the nose as one might expect. I get layers and layers of different chocolate notes, milk chocolate, hot chocolate, fresh fudge. There’s also a nice vanillan note wrapped around the chocolate. There’s a nice little licorice note added on the palate as well as a faint bitterness that offsets the light sweetness. Finishes with a drawn out slightly warming bittersweet chocolaty note.

Draft. When it comes to dessert I always say the more chocolate the better. So I was definitely in love with this beer. Dark brown pour. Espresso, and heavy dark chocolate head. Taste is almost completely chocolate with some roast and coffee.

I bought two bottles of this and saved the second to rate....it is even better than I remembered it being the first go ’round. You’re either in or you’re out with this monster....doth thou loveth thine chocolate? Turns out that I do, and this beer is pretty much entirely a cocoa-man’s dream dram. Blackest black with a creamy dark tan head, oozing every shade of chocolate known for nose and tongue both. Milkiest milk to duskiest dark, this thick, slick, lick o’ choco is dessert in a snifter. 10% you say? Only my liver knows for sure since this behemoth hides its booze like your father when mumsy comes home early. A treat for a Sweet Stout, chocolate chugging champ.
