Sampled many times at Stout Fest 2014. Review logged from notes. Apperance is thick, viscous, and black with no light passage and an ever so razor thin collar of head. The nose on this is amazing. What Grey Monday lacked in hazelnut character, this beer more than makes up for. The chocolate nutty quality that makes nutella like crack is almost perfectly captured in the aroma. Huge cocoa notes paired with dry roasty nut qualities, heavy hazelnut, and some creamy vanilla bourbon marshmallow coconut notes to support it. The flavor is a touch boozy like Cthulhu, this booziness is quickly masked by the decadent creamy chocolate and hazelnut notes that linger throughout. It is impressive how well the adjuncts are incorporated into this beer. Mouthfeel is big, not quite as much body as the BCS family, but every bit as much heat and then some. Overall, this beer needs to find its way into bottles. So tasty. I could only imagine the frenzy that would ensure on the trade forums if/when the brewpub bottles this.
