Bottled Dec 23rd, 2013. About a month old.
A: Pitch, pitch black pour with one of the darkest brown heads ever (almost pure black itself). Tall, dense head to boot. Heads fades super slowly with great retention. Moderate thin streaks of lacing everywhere.
S: Ohhhh yeah. Beautiful coffee notes. Chocolatey and sweet coffee notes, more like a mocha or even a sweet iced coffee. That is to say, not an acrid, bitter coffee aroma. Touch oaky when swirled. Even a little char/smoke here and there.
T: Again, loads of coffee. A bit more bitter here but backed with lots of sweet chocolate still. Delicious mocha flavor, very creamy and thick with great chocolate notes. Flavors turn a bit less sweet and becomes more of a lightly bitter coffee bean and bittersweet chocolate. Never gets truly acrid though. A bit of oak in the finish mixes with the bittersweet chocolate/coffee combination.
M: Heavy, creamy, smooth. Decadent.
O: Delicious. I really enjoyed this one. Bold flavors and well balanced. A bit one-note with all the coffee and chocolate but I don't mind much because it's so tasty. Drinkability is fantastic with the smooth, creamy mouthfeel as well.
