What can I really say about this beer that hasn't already been said? :-P

Poured from a single-serving bottle into a half-liter piece of glassware.

Appearance: It pours the color and consistency of motor oil; while pouring, there is some visible brown but once the beer is in the glass, it's pitch black. Rich tan head leaves moderate-to-heavy lacing as it recedes.

Smell: Just like a mocha-latte. The coffee is heavy here, with chocolate and alcohol tying for second. It really seems like this should be a cup of coffee, not a beer! That being said, there are some faint hop aromas detectable within the onslaught of coffee/chocolate/malt.

Taste: Espresso beans soaked in malted barley and floral hops, drizzled with chocolate syrup. Totally full-flavor, nothing subtle about this. Perhaps a touch of berry and/or grape and/or plum flavor in here. Luckily, the flavor is well-rounded, and nothing supersedes anything else.

Mouthfeel: Very, very rich and full. The beer gently expands on the tongue, aided by mellow carbonation. As it does so, it reveals numerous flavors within. Goes down smoothly without resistance, and leaves behind a definite coffee feeling on the inside of the mouth.

Drinkability: I could easily drink one...every morning :-P

Amazing beer here. Could possibly beat my favorite, the Stone Imperial Russian Stout. Perhaps I'll have to pit the two against each other some day in a battle royale. Great job Founders!
