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.

A - dark black fading to a light amber towards the lip of the glass it was poured into. Head non-existent almost (well poured from the waitress). Very slight lacing in the glass that sticks well to the glass. Good start.

S - mostly a dark cocoa nose, with hints of anise and a sweet aroma like melted chocolate. Slight touch of smokiness here. Served cold, would expect more of this when warmed.

T - Really unique. A balance of smoked wood and earth tones combines with bitter chocolate, roasted malt, and some sweetness on the back palate. A touch of Dutch cocoa lingers on the aftertaste. Really distinctive flavor profile; well worth trying for those of the dark beer lovers.

M - rich and full-flavored make this a sipping beer. Sweetness makes you wanna come back. A slight burn in he upper palate from the alcohol. A little aging couldn't hurt his one. Coats the roof of the mouth.

D - as I let this one come up to temp, it appealed to me more and more. I'll admit to a predisposition towards stouts, but you could do worse than this one. Bonus points for being both domestically brewed and semi-local. Would buy again if given the chance.
