A - Pours near black with a finger of rich chocolate colored head. Solid retention, fantastic lacing.

S - Roasty chocolate and big boozy nose predominantly. Light vanilla notes, some definite coffee type roast.

T - Monster booze with roasty chocolate notes, coffee, vanilla. Almost bourbony from the substantial alcohol heat. Finish is much more enjoyable as the sweetness starts to dominate through the aftertaste.

M - Fullish bodied, silky smooth with minimal carbonation, big boozyness. Definitely a bit of a sipper/warmer
