4.45/5 rDev -1.3%
Dark tan thick single finger head with excellent lacing on a jet black body. Aroma of espresso, burnt wood, banana peel, rubbing alcohol. dark chocolate and roasted malts. Aroma would be better if it was a bit stronger. Flavor follows with milk chocolate which dominates throughout providing a sweetness that at first is too much but you eventually get used too. Additional notes of coffee, vanilla, cake icing, milk, roasted malts and some espresso which doesn't overwhelm. Full and creamy body and light carbonation. Mouthfeel can't get any better. Very good brew. May be too sweet for some. Lucky to have had a chance to try this one.

Flew into Tampa, and swung by the Cigar City taproom before checking into my hotel. Tasted 28 September 2013.
Appearance is amazing. Black, with a big mocha head, amazing retention and lacing. Truly stunning.
Smell is espresso, a tiny bit sharp. Super well supported by rich chocolate.
Taste is 3 parts coffee and 1 part chocolate. The coffee is rich and flavorful, not sharp, and balanced well by sweetness.
Feel is outstanding. Rich and heavy, but fluffy. The nitro is an excellent touch.
A fantastic stout. Great coffee and chocolate malt presence. Happy I got to try this.

On-tap with 9 oz. presented in a snifter.
It poured jet black with a thin brown head. Huge chocolate and roasted malts on the nose followed with coffee, caramel, raisins, and cherries. The coffee flavor comes out more in the taste, and it's mixed with thick, dark chocolate. It's like liquefied fudge poured into a coffee. It has a roasty malt characteristic with a touch of cherry on the finish. Goes down creamy and smooth and leaves you with a warming sensation from the alcohol.
