I definitely get the smell of obvious dark bold roasted black coffee mixing in with the immense amount of roasted barley and then as it warms I get the chocolate and lactic smells.

Its starts off really smooth with the roasted barley and chocolate tastes coming together and then it ends with a burst of coffee, chocolate, dark chocolate and a herbal almost citric hop bite. Its really really flavorful and the really stout roasted flavors mixed with the coffee makes for an insanely delicious pairing.

I'm not too into the style of coffee beer but this definitely makes them more appealing and so flavorful. I also like that you can't taste the alcohol in this one at all especially for being an 8.3 percent beer. I get why this is a top rated beer in its category.

I got this beer from a great BA buddy; Sixthglass - thanks again man for sharing.

A - Pich black and a light brown head that retracts in to a beautiful decent lacing.

S - Strong coffee, dark chocolate, wood and there is also some peat in the smell. All the things I love to smell in a beer because the promise something very tasteful.

T - This beer is like a thin Yeti RIS (from Great Divide)! This beer is actually quite refreshing for a stout of this magnitude. There is a good presence of coffee, vanilla and chocolate, all blended into this wonderful body.

M - Some good soft to medium carbonation and a real bitter finish, not unpleasant though. The body however is more fluid like, than I had expected.

O - A good Stout, but I expected more body, more sweetness and some more spices. Not that it isn't good, believe me it is still excellent, but a stout from this magnitude has to have more to offer. Considering the ABV its beautiful done though and deserves respect.
