Hard pour into a pint glass creates a tan one finger head. Pitch black... did I just brew coffee? Smells like it. Dark coffee notes with spicy hops. Stickly lacing all up on this glass. After sitting a while I smell the acidity and taste the chocolate. The addition of oatmeal provides that famous velvety mouthfeel. I love this beer, I wish I could drink it regularly.

Oh yeah, first review, godspeed to me.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a superior dark brown (pretty much black) with a 1/2 inch dark tan head. Semi bubbly settled after my first sip.

Smell: Pure coffee beans with aroma and I do mean aroma of chocolate. It is an aroma you will not forget.

Taste: I honestly am at a standstill should I smell or drink. Seriously it's a tough decision. I am feeling intense flavor of the espresso and chocolate. Slight bitterness but just enough to reflect on such greatness.

Mouth: Medium carbonation which is little bubbly in the back of your tongue.

Overall: Best dark beer I have had in a VERY long time. This is undoubtedly going to be a steady in my fridge (and hopefully yours). If I would rename this beer I would call it "Don't judge me, Drink me" Cheers to all and hope you enjoy.
