Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Dark black/ trace of tan. Nice creamy, thick 2 inch head and lots of lacing.
Smell - Roasted malts, Chocolate, hops, carmael, coffee, spices, smokey, and some booze.
Taste - Sweet malts, some hops, and dark fruits with some booze is the starting flavor. This beer is sweet, malty and has plenty of chocolate and coffee. Sweet dark fruits along with the hops add some citric notes to each sip. Also plenty of smokey flavors, and the booze is present in each sip.
Mouthfeel - Its thick, and a big beer. Tounge gets the malt/hop kick, along with plenty of chocolate and coffee. PAlette gets sweet fruits, malts and some booze. Aftertaste is sweet, malty and boozy.
Overall - A nice big beer, thats really smooth and easy to drink. More sweet and hoppy then most double stouts. Nice hop, sweet citric fruit flavor that adds more flavors to a already big beer. This has been my favorite laughing dog so far, a nice beer, really enjoyable to drink.

i like this take on the now extremely popular enormous stout that every brewery in the country seems to be making. while many of them all seem the same, this one adds something new to the conversation. its got a more interesting malt bill than so many, intensely dark roast but lightened and smoothed out by what must be a little wheat. its also got a ton of body, but an awesome dryness to the finish, almost chalky in texture, like crumbly bitter bakers chocolate but finishing a little faster. its neat to have such a big dark beer to that on the palate, so few do. its also very bubbly, well carbonated for the style, i find that uplifting about it, and even though its 11% abv, it appears much lighter and more delicate than others due to these mouthfeel attributes. notes of coffee and burning tobacco are present in the finish, and just a slight oaty sweetness that is recognizable. my first beer (i think) from these guys, and its impressive. i know there is a bourbon barrel edition out there, but i cant imagine that improving this much. it may add sweetness and roll over the textural delicacy that exists in this one, but we will have to get one and see!
