Served on tap at the Constant Spring in Goshen Indiana.

This is a beautiful inky black beer with a gorgeous golden head that stays around for a little while.

Awesome aroma full of coffee and vanilla.

Huge amount of flavor. Starts slightly boozy, but then smooths out and and the other flavors come through. Massive notes of bourbon and vanilla on top of the awesome coffee and chocolate flavor. Brilliant.

Super silky mouthfeel.

Just fantastic, by far the best beer I've put in my mouth.

Not a stout fan, but this definitely isin't a regular stout. I couldn't have enjoyed this more.

A- Extremely dark with a slight bubbly brown head.

S-Coffee and Chocolate all day, awesome smell.

T-Neither the coffee or chocolate was terribly over whelming and complemented each other perfectly.

M-Full body but not overly syrupy at all.

O-Believe the hype, this beer is the real deal. Real pleasure to enjoy!
