look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Thanks to cruisc for this one

Look: Black and totally opaque with a brown ring at the top of the beer. Beautiful looking 1/2 inch dark tan head with good retention

Smell: Dark chocolate and lots of alcohol and some molasses

Taste: Upfront I get a good amount of burnt malt and ash. The background has a crazy amount of dark chocolate and coffee. The flavors are big and bold and a bit over powering

Mouthfeel: Full body with medium to low carbonation

Overall: It is a beer that is a bit of a sipper. The flavors are bold and in your face so be ready for it. Definitely recommended
