4.4/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Late 2011 bottle

A - It pours out thick and black like motor oil. There's a 2 finger milk chocolate color head. Once drank down a good amount of lacing appears.

S - Huge amounts of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee.

T - The roasted malt and coffee don't waste any time appearing. Followed by an appearance of dark chocolate balanced out by hop bitterness.

M - It's thick enough to where it just coats your palette all over. You can pick up a subtle amount of alcohol. Perfect amount of carbonation for me.

O - An awesome beer that will make you sit back and enjoy the ride.
