Pours a rich black color with a dark tan one finger head which recedes to a thick a lace on the top of the glass. Smells of coffee, chocolate and burnt malts.

Fantastic!

Amazingly balanced. So many layers of flavors. There must be an immense amount of malts and hops in this one, all of which blend together beautifully. Thick, chewy, and huge in body. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, caramel and toffee up front. Surprisingly though, there is very little sweetness. A bittering citric and herbal hop presence stings the back of the tongue just in time to wash away any flavor that would try to overstay its visit in your mouth.

This beer has a good reputation and for good reason. Can't wait til we get it back in stock at my store.
