4.49/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

A: Pours dark black and thick. 1 – 2 fingers of creamy head that dissipates quickly to a bubbly collar and not much lacing.

S: A massive nose of rich coffee and chocolate; molasses, dark roasted malts, boozy (but not overly or off-putting).

T: Wow, a big hit of dark roast coffee dominates the palate, but also lots of roasted malt. The big grain bill is present as well with lots of sweet malt and rich, dark chocolate.

M: Medium-high body and medium-low carbonation; smooth, round, silky.

O: A delicious beer, great richness and tons of coffee and malt flavors (a minor criticism is that the coffee can be a bit overpowering). None-the-less, there is such a deep, rich, complex flavor profile to this beer, I could drink it all day long, starting in the morning of course!
