4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2/1/13. Bottle. Pours all black with a small brown head; doesn’t stick around long. Aroma is chocolate for days, specifically hot chocolate. There’s not much room for anything else but a small ouch of booze. Really incredible aroma. Taste is similar and not one to disappoint; bittersweet chocolate, roasty, some booze and a dry dark chocolate finish. Not much lacing. Medium-low carbonation makes for a very smooth and easy drinking experience. Slick and oily mouthfeel; not coating. This is another incredbile achievement of the Blackwater Series. Can’t wait to try the others.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from unknown via Jimena. Pours a rich, dark black with a slight bit of light brown head. Aroma rich and redolent of chocolate, like a liquid chocolate bar, with a hint of condensed milk as well. So sweet in the nose. Body thin and roasty, almost tangy. Finish somewhat abrupt, maybe a bit of resinous character.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle at home. Pours a very dark with a tan head. Smell is of malt, chocolate and coffee. The taste matches the aroma. There’s some bitterness there that comes from the chocolate...almost like a dark chocolate candy bar. Overall a good beer. Would try again.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Perfect dessert beer. The chocolate encompasses every part of the beer from beginning to end. It's there but not over the top. Very malty with a small hop presence. Very good.

Bottle. Black, black, black. If I took a bottle of Hershey’s and poured it in a glass, that is what this beer smells and tastes like. Delicious!

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Chocolate, But this isn’t just chocolate in a light, subtle sort of way. This is thick, delicious chocolate that you could sit and enjoy for hours and hours. The mouth feel is thick, sticky, and viscous, with little carbonation. Alcohol warmth is powerful in this beer.
