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.

A thick black pour into my tulip glass, minimal head and a bit of sloppy lacing left behind. The smell is coffee up front with hints of cocoa and vanilla.
The flavor is a dark roasted coffee, sweet milk chocolate makes it tastes like a latte.. Hints of vanilla and oak are present but that dark roasted malt bill is unbelievably tasty. Medium to full body with low to medium carbonation.
This is a fantastic beer and I'll be pick up some more when I see some! Been wanting to try it for a while and finally found it in NYC - glad It was as good (actually better) as I expected.
