>> Thanks bsmitty for the share. Inky black pour with good foam. Melted dark chocolate candy bar nose a la ST Choklat. Taste is semisweet chocolate, decadent, melted candy car. Palate is dense, rich. Really nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof. Deep dark black pour, thick sticky khaki colored head that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Aroma is sweet with some chocolate accents, a hint of black coffee. Flavor has some decent cocoa accents, some licorice notes and a hint of eggnog in the finish. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Had alongside the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Imperial Stout - this was a close second.
