12 ounce bottle - $2.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Slips out a black, viscous-looking body, though with only a very, very small, tan head.
Smell: An aroma choked with rich maltiness -- molasses, chilled espresso, chocolate, along with full notes of licorice sticks, plump raisins. Minor spiciness, slim smokiness.
Taste: Boldly roasty, espresso-laden, and heaping with melted, fine dark chocolate and thick molasses. Restrained sweetness, as it's tempered by the sharpness of the roasted malts, hops, and warming alcohol. Black licorice. Dark fruits. A little additional fruitiness attributed to the hops, slightly resiny. Reasonably dry on the smooth finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Big and beefy yet relatively balanced -- I liked it.
Serving type: bottle
