On the 10th day of Christmas, Chalsk’s beer gods poured for me...pours dark chocolate thick with a caramel head that has a bright red cinnamon hue. Aroma of warm pleasant chocolate bourbon pretty smooth in the nos. The flavors of light roasted coffee and light spices and roasted malts. The body is lighter than expected, but good overall.

Black pour. Huge, dark, tan head that lasts quite a while. Leaves plenty of lacing behind. Smells, chocolatey, peppery, hints of vanilla, and bourbon and wood notes. Taste is woody, chocolate, and alcohol. A little warm, but the sweetness mellows it out a bit. Not bad at all.
