4.38/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle courtesy of a trade with Sonofalime. Thanks! Poured into my beer goblet.

Appearance:Very dark brown, almost black beer with a whisp of a head that leaves a touch of lacing as I drink.

Smell: The nose has roasted grains along with bakers chocolate and old coffee grounds. A hint of alcohol as well.

Taste: Roastiness all along the way. The chocolate kicks in in the middle with the coffee bringing up the rear. Intense bitterness in the finish. Char along with some dried fruit make a bit of an appearance. The flavors are all tamed with a touch of sweetness that keeps this from being dominated by bitterness. The alcohol is well hidden for 8.3 ABV.

Mouthfeel: The body is very full and creamy, very nice. The carbonation is also on the higher side

Overall: A great example of a chocolate/coffee stout. I wish this were regularly available to me.
