Re-Review Notes:
Tulip Glassware
Bottled 10/13/13
Served at 40 degrees

Appearance:
Pours pitch black, allowing no light to pass through. A light brown head quickly dissolves to a thin ring. No noticeable carbonation. Decent lacing and light legging.

Aroma:
Rich, bitter chocolate and cocoa nibs up front backed by thick notes of roasted coffee. Hints of molasses. Not a lot to speak of beyond that, but it is very pleasing.

Taste:
Bitter chocolate hits you first with a subtle smoke character. Gobs of roasted malt and coffee ride out each sip. Light notes of molasses and vanilla. Roasted coffee aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked - I'd never guess this one at 8%.

Mouthfeel:
This is a full-bodied beer that will fill you up. Again, no noticeable carbonation. Smooth exit with a nice aftertaste.

Overall:
This is a fantastic beer for the cold winter days we have ahead. Easy to drink, but best enjoyed slowly. Highly recommend.
