Pours very black with a medium brown fluffy head. Moderate lacing.
Smells of burnt malts and thick, dense coffee grounds.
A profound coffee/espresso flavor masks a heavy burnt malt/burnt wood flavor. Behind that lies a solid chocolate malt and some mild spices.
Medium in body with a heavy dose of carbonation. The carbonation serves to accent the coffee/burnt flavors heavily.
This was a major surprise. I had heard about this one, but had never really given it much thought until I realized I knew the name when looking in the store. Fantastic coffee flavor in this one, moreso than I could have imagined, yet its not as overwhelming as the first sip, and really ends up fantastically easy to down. Not even a hint of the 9.5% alcohol really, its hidden behind that massive coffee and malt explosion. Excellent brew I *will* be revisiting.
