Poured from a pint bottle into a goblet.

A - Deep brown color that does not allow light through, although it appears clear at the edges. Dark tan head is initially fluffy and settles to a thick ring around the glass and shimmering sheets of tiny bubbles on the surface.

S - Aroma is fairly evenly balanced between roasty, full malt and citrusy American hops. There are interesting other smells in the background. Smoke, leather, an unusual earthy herbal note. There is low fruit like plums.

T - Strong roasted coffee flavor up front, Slightly acrid and smoky, with warm malt and chocolate milk behind it. Strong hops bitterness cuts through the malt in mid-palate. The hops taste more earthy than citrusy, but there is faint grapefruit in the background. The finish is dry, bringing back the coffee and smoky flavors.

M - Medium to full body with some mouth-coating malt, eventually finishing fairly dry with an astringency from the roasted malt. Moderate to full carbonation is smooth with a slightly tingly finish. Definite alcohol presence but not overly hot.

O - A very enjoyable beer. It is big and has bold flavors, but it has comparatively more balance than many American stouts.

I am about to finish the beer when i start the review. I already want another one. Noooow!!!
Pours pitch black. Dark brown collar into the light. A beautiful two finger head that stays there. Creamy appearance. I think this is the most appealing sight that you can have while looking at a beer.

Smells of coffee, milk, roasted malt... coffee again. In the background dark fruits kick in. Beautiful.

Tastes bitter, hops very present. Tastes sweet also, milky and creamy.
Complex beverage.
It ends with coffee (two kinds), dark chocolate, roasted malts, dried plums, cherries and the list can go on.

Medium carbonation with a zingy feel to it.

Very good.

thick and wholesome. roasty and toasted malt, barley and coffee. nice tannish head. more coffee-ish than espresso-ish. beautiful creamy tan head. super dark brown body. the tannins and bitter residual from the coffee come with the very slight hops. very coffee-bitter at the end....
