Enjoyed on tap at Capone's on 12/6 (great tap list, as usual). Reviewed from notes. Served in a 6 oz. snifter.
Jet black! Just a puddle of brown fuzz on top with absolutely no carbonation in sight. Imposing, yet elegant in its stillness.
Faint aromas of nut and cocoa with a hint of dryness. Initially, it seems quite subtle, but the scent becomes more noticeable as it warms, emitting strong whiffs of coffee bean.
Profoundly delicious. Hints of vanilla, nutty, roasted coffee bean, chocolate bar and soy milk. The flavors are so big that they slap you in the face... yet, it's not a rich beer, allowing some dryness to peak out in the conclusion. The flavors come in waves; boldly but not forcefully, making for one of the best stouts ever brewed.
For a beer of such gravity, it's rather drinkable and the wave of warm chocolate makes the coffee bean bite seem relaxed. It's a dessert beer that doesn't make you feel guilty or go into sugar shock. How cool is that?
The three times I've had this beer have been an absolute pleasure. How can dessert be so drinkable? How can weasel shit be so delicious? I may never know the answers.

Very nice beer.
Pours a nice dark beer. A little brown foam forms at the top. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, and that Imperial quality of stouts. Taste is somewhat bitter, coffee, but then it is sweet and absolutely addicting. Very well balanced beer, may get you tipsy. Easy to drink, alcohol is almost not noticeable. Body is syrupy, perfect.
