Availability: Year-round

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.

From a can bought back from SC. Complicated code on the can. My best guess is thta this was canned in January.

Pours a thick foamy dk brown, with a small oatmeal head. Taste is of nicely toasted malt, not overly rosted, so quite smooth tasting. Wasn't picking up much in the was of chocolate or vanilla tones, no coffee either. Just a simple straightforward solid stout. Looking forward to the rest of the 4-pack.

A - Pours a dark opaque brown, whilst pouring its relatively translucent to where I can fairly easily see through it. Kind of like a brown ale. Decent finger or light brown head, thin ubbles. Ok lacing, weak retention.

S - Big chocolate nose with lots of coffee, thats mostly it - maybe some milk/cream. Simple but welcoming

T - Fantastic chocolate taste up front followed by minimal dark fruit/alcohol flavor. Finish is pure chocolate and coffee, aftertaste is coffee

M - Lighter bodied for the style, nice carbonation, still fairly smooth. Easy drinking brown/stout
