4.9/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

P: 12oz bottle into a DFH signature glass.

A: Pours completely black with a nearly two finger creamy brown head. The head dies down quickly but lacing is solid and it sticks down the glass.

S: Lots of coffee up front along with dark roasted malts and bitter dark chocolate. You can almost smell the creaminess of the beer through the aroma. It's hard to explain but you'll know what I mean with one good whiff.

T: Everything present in the aroma is present in the taste and that's no small feat. A slight bitterness from the dark roasted malts is probably the most pronounced flavor but you also get a nice touch of coffee and hint of chocolate in the finish. There's nothing not to like here, very well balanced and expertly crafted. At 8.3% ABV is deceptively drinkable as it invites you back for just another sip.

M: Very smooth, very creamy, very full bodied and very good. Carbonation seems to be on the low side but it could just be the insane amount of body over-powering it and that's not a bad thing at all.

O: I'm super impressed with this beer. The aromas and flavors are fantastic, pull no punches and leave no questions on the table. What you smell is what you taste and that, to me, is the sign of a well crafted beer. Easy to drink, enjoy and recommend.
