Purchased at Bullock's in Marietta, Georgia. I have misplaced my receipt, but I recall it wasn't exactly cheap. Bottled On: Feb 12 2009. So fresh!! Let's get to it!

Appearance: Pours an inky black body with a large, frothy, dark tan head. True, there may have been better some lace formation, but I found myself tossing back the glass so often that none could even gain a foothold on my Duvel tulip glass.

Smell: Roasty, fresh-brewed espresso nose welcomes in full notes of chocolate fondue, dark malts, fresh oak lumber. Some breweries get coffee additions wrong -- Great Divide got it right.

Taste: After the first sip it's hard not to shout out an "AWW YEAH BABY!" like you're rooting hard for your favorite sports team. Dark, heavily roasted malts harmonize perfectly with the deep, sultry flavor of quality espresso. Add in a heavy-handed pour of dark chocolate sauce and heavy cream flavored with vanilla extract. Fairly sweet, but it's kept in check by the roasty, earthy bitterness, tannic wood qualities, and the cumulative, spicy, sprucy hop component. Hint of fruit. Very minor touch of alcohol warmth, like imbibing a complimentary shot of Godiva Mocha Liqueur. Finishes drying with a vast roastiness and lingering tastes of chocolate and oak.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Spoiler Alert: It's absolutely delish, what can I say?! Rich flavors that know no bounds. Sometimes I'm hesitant to drink an entire bomber of something by my lonely, miserable self, but I cleared through this bottle in record time. One to sip and savor slowly, but it's hard not to chug it greedily like an insatiable fiend.
