650ml bottle. Pours an opaque and glossy with a cappuccino head. The nose has milk chocolate, rather than dark and raisins. The taste has chocolate with a burnt toast edge. The palate has big in body with a big creamy texture with a reasonably elegant finish. Overall, a nice beer, though slight reservations with the burnt toast thing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle into a snifter. The beer pours a dark black with a thin gray-ish head that doesn’t last long. Aromatics are sweet vanilla, coffee, milk chocolate, and caramel. Taste is sweet and chocolate-y. There’s also a subtle bitterness to it that just rounds out the flavor to make it reminiscent of a well made cup of coffee blended with hot chocolate. If this beer were a touch less sweet, I could drink it all day long.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at The Pony Bar, NYC. Pours black with a surprisingly weak, tan head. Aroma is big, rich dark chocolate with roasted malts and mocha at the edges. Medium to big sweet flavor with heavy, dark and bitter chocolate. There of hints of charred toast, earth and burnt moss. Full bodied with average, smooth carbonation. Light warming finish, more strong bitter cocoa, medium roastiness, light grass and earth bitterness. Lasting bitter roast chocolate. LONG lasting. This beer certainly delivers on its claims. Very good.
