look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
Poured from an 11.5 oz bottle into a goblet.
A - Pours a silky, heavy, pitch black with a half-inch of chocolate brown foam on top, leaving intermittent spots of lacing.
S - Lots of roasted malt and coffee with a slight indecipherable twang, possibly some sourness from the coffee.
T - Roasty, bitter coffee, toasted malt, bitter chocolate, with a hint of sweet toffee in the aftertaste. Very dark and complex. Bitterness is very manageable.
M - Oily, heavy, silky, with a little bit of pep in the carbonation. Like liquid velvet.
D - Even if you had the stones to down this and not be impaired by its hefty ABV, you'd be disrespecting this one if you drink too quickly. Sip and Savor this deep, dark, vicious brew.
Overall - If this beer is a sin, then kick my ass to hell, because this one rocks. It doesn't have the same heady, luscious vanilla of KBS, but makes up for it with its amazing roasty coffee character.

11.5oz bottle poured into a snifter. 6 and 1 notched on the label of this twist off bottle.
A: Pours a very dark brown appearing pitch black in the glass. A mild khaki tan head sits on top, dissipating in a couple minutes.
S: Initially there is a nice dose of coffee that blends very well with a roasted malt quality. Dark fruit qualities come out more as it warms along with a touch of smokiness.
T: A beer with flavor that builds on you. At first I get a slightly bitter coffee, then a blend of dark fruit comes through. The aftertaste lingers with a great roastiness for a solid 2 minutes after each sip.
M: Very smooth beer. Creamy mouthfeel that slides like velvet over your tongue. Doesn't even seem like an alcoholic beverage. Remarkable.
Overall I am stunned with the complexity yet harmony of this beer. Coffee is just enough to add without overwhelming, hops compliment the coffee and the roastiness just works period.
