Thanks a ton to nase for the bottle!

A - Pours and inky black concoction. Looks thick. Head is cocoa colored, about one finger thick and isn't going anywhere. Nice sticky lacing.

S - Big roasty dark malts. Dark chocolate and some powdered cocoa. The chocolate smells are so big and bold it makes me salivate. There is some soft expresso lying behind along with a slight anise odor. Do I smell gingerbread? I think so. Exceptional.

T - Oh wow, this is extraordinary. Big vibrant chocolate flavors envelope the tongue with dark chocolate, milk chocolate and cocoa all at once. Some subtle expresso flavors come in. Then you get a bitter wash that is quite pleasant. This is really all about the chocolate and that is aok with me. Super tasty.

M - Big, rich, and chewy. Smooth carbonation.

D - This is not a good beer, it is a great beer. Find it. You need it. Good thing I have Darkness to comfort the thoughts that I can't get this locally.
