On tap at Village Draft House on 11/18/11.

Arrived in a small chalice. Poured pitch black with a thin lacing of cappuccino colored head that didn't last long. The nose has notes of chocolate and coffee. The intense coffee definitely has me thinking breakfast. The taste is rich, deep roasted malts with incredible chocolate and coffee flavors too. After a few sips I notice a little anise or licorice as well. As the beer warms the alcohol becomes noticeable, but it only warms and doesn't detract from flavor. The mouthfeel is rich, full bodied, and well carbonated.

This is a robust, rich, delicious stout. The flavors are complex and well balanced. It's a slower drinking due to it's full body, intense coffee, and ABV, but it's a beer you'll want more than one of.
