Been looking for this one for a while. It was expensive ($12.99 for a 4-pack), but I knew I'd regret it if I didn't grab it, and I don't, though I don't understand why it's so expensive. Could the ingredients be that much better than what the other guys use? Maybe the Belgian Chocolate or coffee? Maybe the hype?
Pours pretty much jet black with a 2-3 finger head. Nice lacing.
Aroma is malty, sour, a little bit of coffee. Not huge but good.
Tons of roasted barley, chocolate and coffee flavor. It's deep, layered and complex though, not too sweet or bitter. Enough bitterness to balance it, though it could almost use a drop more to balance the sweetness. The flavors linger on the tongue and palate for a long time.
Mouthfeel is big, smooth, syrupy but not heavy if that makes sense. Good amount of carbonation
This beer is definitely hyped, not as much as it's Canadian and Kentuckian cousins, but I was not disappointed. This is one of the best American Stouts (or Imperials Stouts) I've had. It's got everything I look for in the style.
