Thanks to jdoolin for the trade, and I see why this beer has all the hype. The pour is a black color with limited brown hues and limited transparency when held to the light. A darker tan head that did hid to the side of the glass and remained throughout the tasting.

The nose was awesome. Malt aroma’s blended through out with very nice distinct fragrances. Dark chocolate mixes with some oatmeal and rich vanilla bean coffee and a light ester. Some light roasted notes and a slight lactic/milky feel as well. Overall very impressive.

The taste, overall very impressive. A malty flavor that emphasizes the coco chocolate flavor. Has a really nice rich, dark chocolate flavor. The oatmeal comes out more then the nose indicated and blends well for a smooth flavor. The roasted flavor is lighter and has more of an earthy flavor that blends lightly with the hops.

The body is great with a full feel with an easy to drink. There is a little silky feel and no phenolic or alcoholic esters that overpower. The carbonation is a bit high for feel but the nit-picky. Very impressive overall and a must have for every beer lover. Thanks again, jdoolin!
