look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
12oz. bottle poured into a snifter. No bottled date.
(A)- Pours thick, and black as night. Very little head formation, but had some serious light brown bubbles. Some lacing.
(S)- Lots of coffee and oatmeal! Combined with some sweet chocolate and molasses. Some bread nuances.
(T)- Super rich roasted malts. Tons of coffee within. Slight bread component from the oatmeal. Finalized by some cocoa.
(M)- Thick stuff in the mouth. Seriously roasted to the point of almost being bitter, yet the sweetness balances that out really well! Good carbonation level. Where is the 8.3% abv? Pretty damn smooth if you ask me! Incredible balance!
(D)- If I could get away with drinking this at breakfast every morning, I would ! It really reminds me of that early morning cup of coffee with some well-done toast spread with milk chocolate ! A sipper, yet an incredibly enjoyable one at that. If you let this get up to almost room temperature, it only gets better! One of the best and unique Stouts out there along with their CBS and KBS !

Served at 40 degrees
Pours pitch black, allowing no light to pass through. A light brown head quickly dissolves to a thin ring. No noticeable carbonation. Decent lacing and light legging.
Rich, bitter chocolate and cocoa nibs up front backed by thick notes of roasted coffee. Hints of molasses. Not a lot to speak of beyond that, but it is very pleasing.
Bitter chocolate hits you first with a subtle smoke character. Gobs of roasted malt and coffee ride out each sip. Light notes of molasses and vanilla. Roasted coffee aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked - I'd never guess this one at 8%.
This is a full-bodied beer that will fill you up. Again, no noticeable carbonation. Smooth exit with a nice aftertaste.
This is a fantastic beer for the cold winter days we have ahead. Easy to drink, but best enjoyed slowly. Highly recommend.
