Served @ St. Charles Tap House for a measly $3. Love Mondays here!

Served in a Dogfish Head chalice.

This brew is pitch black allowing zero light to show through the edges. A thick 2 fingers of brown head sits briefly, leaving thick walls of tan lace stuck to the glass.

The nose brings out notes of chocolate and black licorice. Sweet smelling mainly with a bit of a roasty backbone.

The taste offers much more roasted malt than the nose. The sweet milk chocolate is nicely melded with some licorice and toasted malt. The high ABV is pretty noticeable at the end of each sip but is in no way deterring.

The mouthfeel, my god the mouthfeel. Very viscous and oily. The way a big stout should be. Chewy and comfortable on the palate. A light amount of carbonation suites this brew just right.

Overall, I enjoyed this on tap a bit more than the bottle because im getting a richer mouthfeel. Great big-bodied stout that packs a punch.

750ml corked and capped bottle bought online from Beermerchants.com...

Poured blacker than black... Burnt mocha tan head poured very big thick and foamy with a pock marked meringue like topping which faded slowly to good thick covering with lots of thick sticky lacing...

Aroma - Big blast of roasted / charred chocolate malts, tar, sooty smoke, charred bread, molasses / treacle sweetness, dark fruits (black cherries and grapes, dates, raisins), roasted nut brittle, some balsamic vinegar notes, some soy, very earthy, burnt coffee beans...

Taste - Lots of charred / burnt chocolate malts and liquorice to the fore followed by light treacle and molasses sweetness, sooty notes, strong espresso coffee, toasted / charred bread, stewed prunes, black cherries, grassy hops, light oakiness, fresh vanilla, quite peppery, nice warming booze...

Feel - Sharp initially then and smooths out nicely... full bodied... incredibly drinkable for 13% although you can certainly feel the effects of the booze after a while...

Overall - A very complex beer which takes a few sips before all the flavours emerge. Highly recommended...
