Pours black in the glass with a hint of ruby red when held up to the light. Soft on the palate, very, very creamy. Dark roasted cocoa and coffee notes followed by an almond nutty aftertaste. Nice aroma of the same dark cocoa and coffee. Overall a wonderful brew. Thanks for BarZigKin for sharing!

The look is really dark, big tan head, and black in color. The smell is roasty, nuts, smokey, inky, charcoal, malt, and good. The taste is fruit, malt, roasted marshmallow, and nice.

Thanks to errl for sharing this beer. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma and flavor are full of chocolate and roasted malt notes. I also get a bit of cream character that is very nice. There is also a hint of mint in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Can via trade. actually poured this into a snifter. nose is cocoa with a weird piney thing too. pours pitch black with a large light brown head. Taste is a creamy and chocolate bliss. Very well balanced in terms of a light, just barely there roast and a full mouthfeel and creaminess without being too much. Seems to be missing some of the ester fruitiness that I prefer in this style when I drank it at first, but it seems to come through as it warms, but it could just be the creamiest. A very solid offering.
