Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet-black in color, this monster smells of coffee and chocolate. The taste is much of the same, with hints of creamy toffee and roasted malt. Smooth and delicious, this medium bodied ale is all about the malts, but has enough hop bitterness to be balanced.

Pours a cola color with a khaki head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of nice roasted notes.

Tastes of the roasted notes mostly with a smattering of hops. Notes of coffee, chocolate, and brown sugar lead off. Nuttiness and vanilla come through next. Hops make their way through next and add some earthy bitterness. Finishes with a bit more roasted notes.

Mouthfeel is medium-full with a slightly assertive amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a nice double stout, and it is worth checking out.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a BrewDog cervoise glass. Can is at least a year old.

A: Dark and cola-like, with light head.

S: Smells oddly fruity and shot through with boozy whiffs.

T: It is really fruity, and kind of flat. But still, it's tasty. Aftertaste has hints licorice.

M: Smooth and flat. Almost silky.

O: Good, but not great. I remember it having more bite and bitterness.
