Poured form a bomber into a Stone RIS glass

A: Opaque black with a thick and creamy mocha head. Poured like motor oil!

S: Pungent! Deep and complex. Makes me want to dive head first into the glass. Tons of coffee, coffee cake, chocolate ice cream, dark fruits, chocolate covered cherries, espresso, and more coffee cake. Smells outstanding!

T: Poseidon's Trident this is tasty! Taste like biting into chocolate coffee cake. Getting, roasted malt, coffee cake, chocolate, dark fruit, fig, espresso, more chocolate, and rounds out with more coffee cake. So decadent its like biting into a rick chocolate cake covered in espresso. Sinfully sweet but not too much. Literally just right.

M: Smooth as all hell. For a beer with big with this beg of an ABV it goes down like silk. Coats the entire mouth and goes down with the slightest heat. Smooth sinful sipper.

O: So well crafted and balanced. Easily one of my new all time favorites. Sweet but not too sweet, thick but goes down creamy, 11% ABV but just the slightest hint of booze. Perfectly balanced and masterfully crafted. Do yourself a favor and get it. For the 7 bucks i payed i felt like i stole it! Outstanding!
