Got one from my beer guy today. Cracked it open tonight. Pours a midnight black with a small head. Smells nicely of chocolate. Slight coffee too. The coffee comes out a bit more with the first taste. Hmm. A bit tangy as well. Just the right amount of booziness. Mouthfeel is incredible. Thick, smooth, creamy. Overall a fantastic beer. Not quite as high in alcohol as ones like DFH120 or as boozy as BCBS, which, in my opinion, makes this one more enjoyably drinkable. My first perfect score.
