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.

Not going to lie, this just didn't do it for me, and I LOVE stouts. The aroma was full on black coffee, shut down all others smells, the taste was a mixture between strong alcohol and black coffee with a plastic, artificial aftertaste. At almost 10 dollars for a four pack of cans, absolutely not worth it in my opinion.

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.
