Thick and black with a steardy, fluffy dark fudgy brown top of foam. A thin grazing of lace sheets itself across the glass with amazing might.

Nose of semi boozy/rum soaked dark fudge and darker chocolate, roast, espresso, dark cherry, and notes to piney hops.

Flavors are quite nice with a rich, decadant flow of deep lush chocolate laced with roasty coffee bits and some tame tangy black cherry sweetness and thick fig are layered within the chocolate. Loftily and mediumly justified in its bitterness of chocolate and hops the whole way thru. A lofty cake-like fluff in the finish builds incredibly well, like eating a huge, well-made chocolate chocolate chip muffin, as it then seeps in a bit of dark cherry/dark rummy/port wine-like warmth over a bit of molasses and some slight piney hoppyness under its lengthy chocolate base. Delish! And worth every sip and/or gulp.

Big creamy body of silky laden thick chocolatey fudge. A bolder bite in the mid range of carbonation, yet staying calming and smooth, soft, and supple. Lightly drying off ever so faintly into the finish of a complexing and fun portion of fluffy dark chocolate, dark cherry warming piney hops.

Impressive as hell! And quite drinkable just the same!
Now this is a beer from a can worth buying. And a very big beer at that!
