Appearance: nearly solid black with a hint of brown relief, one finger of dense creamy beige head, good retention and spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: chocolate, nuts, vanilla, hint of coffee. (10/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-high bitter. (9/10) Palate: full slick body, moderate-low carbonation, sweet warming finish. (4/5)

You know it’s a good beer when you lick the drip off the side of the bottle and go “Oh my gawd that’s good!” I mean, literally. Out loud. Chocolatey and pecany (is that a word? let’s say it is) and rich and just generally decadent – yet not excessively sweet. I will give this one of the biggest compliments I can give: I wish the bottle were bigger. I’m literally nursing the last inch in the glass to make it last longer. Luckily, the aroma is probably its best feature, so I can probably keep that up for the better part of an hour. Stupidly good. (18/20)
