Holy coffee-chocolate-licorice-flavor mother of god -- this one is big indeed. Nice deep black color. Medium head. (Hint of cat pee aroma not so great but easy enough to look past). 1st one and certainly not my last. i was going to try and float a pils on top but that would just f-it up.

Like a good Guinness on steroids.

12 oz bottle, poured in a chalice glass. Pitch black, hardly any amber under the light. Smells strongly of alcohol, but the taste is smooth. No coffee taste here. A trace of floral and spices combined with a chocolate roasted malt flavor and a smokey, bitter finish with a pleasant aftertaste. One of the better stouts I've tasted. Top notch.
