A: deep brown, a couple shades off black; thick fluffy head; intricate spiderweb lacing
S: cocoa, malt, cardboard
T: sweet and bitter, syrupy, vanilla and cocoa
M: creamy, full-bodied, dry
O: Like a lot of rich stouts, better in small quantities. A 750mL like this would serve five people well. Bittersweet, relatively simple, certainly not sessionable. Excellent masking of the 9% abv,

4/5 rDev -5.2%
A - 4 - Dark brown/black beer with a nice dark mocha half finger head that leaves a nice lacing.
S - 4 - Chocolate, coffee, oatmeal, espresso, vanilla, cream.
T - 4 - Dark roasted notes, chocolate, coffee, oatmeal, espresso, vanilla, cream, very rich but simple at the same time.
M - 4 - Medium-heavy mouthfeel, creamy, alc is completely covered, aftertaste is roasty chocolate coffee.
O - 4 - Good beer. It's not too overpowering but not too simple. I like it. It's almost like a better version of Old Raspy.

4.24/5 rDev +0.5%
Glass Used: Nonic pint
Appearance: Thick pour revealing a near onyx darkness blocking out all visible light. The head is a big three finger mocha head.
Smell: Bittersweet chocolate, vanilla and roasted malts headline this stout.
Taste: Follows the nose pretty closely except the flavors pop a lot more along with a bittersweet finish. All of these attributes mingle together to create a balanced, luscious chocolate stout.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, heavy, thick and effervescent. Very milk shake like.
Overall: A damn delicious chocolate stout that I would love to enjoy more often, however at the current price point I doubt I would make a multiple purchase within a year. Chocolate stout lovers should give this one a shot.
