3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an oily looking black with an average tan head. Aroma is very sweet, with chocolate and cocoa. I get a very candyish impression from this. The taste is what I was expecting. Rich chocolate with some slight cocoa. The wrinkle in here is that there is a liquor flavor that is present throughout drinking. It is most apparent in the aftertaste, which is almost completely liquor. But that doesn’t bother me. My problem is that this one is extremely sweet. Medium in body and texture, without much carbonation. Alcohol content seems to creep up on you despite what you would expect from its presence in the taste. This is good and very tasty. However, this is way, way to sweet for me. I wouldn’t be able to drink more than one because of this fact.

Delicious desert beer. Pours a jet black color, mocha head dissipates quickly. Aroma is incredible milk chocolate with lots of sweetness. Taste follows the nose with tons of milk chocolate, rich and velvety. Very low bitterness, smooth mouthfeel, and pretty clean finish. A superb after dinner beer that lacks the typical artificial flavors of the category - this one is legit. Will buy again. Would love to see this in 6 packs.

Sample at WOBFest 2016. Man, did we start it out right. This one is a winner - excellent chocolate flavor that completely hides the high alcohol content. Smooth, medium body goes down easy.

On tap at Black Bottle Brewery. Black appearance with a light brown head. Big chocolate aroma with vanilla, rich malts, light roasted grains and coffee. Similar flavor, adding mild sweetness and mild bitterness with hints of licorice and molasses. Medium to full body with a light boozy finish. Good.

on tap @ Hebron Brew Haus / Hebron KY --- Aroma of sweet malt and chocolate. Opaque brown/black color, beige head, stripes of lace. Taste is heavenly, addictive, chocolate malt. All it needs is a scoop of vannilla ice cream. Sure, it’s not a typical brew, but for dessert, it is one of the best.
