Growler huge huge thanks to wickedtoaster (Reddit) for this amazing beverage. Filled about a week ago.
Great looking creamy foamy 1/2 finger head fades at a med pace, huge legs and decent lacing, ridiculously super dark pitch black beer. Practically strains the glass.
Nose brings pure awesome coffee, a light nutty aroma, nutty coffee mostly, little dark caramel and dark malts, chewy like dark molasses maybe, great awesomeness of coffee mild nutty and dark malts, hint cocoa, little syrup.
Taste is amazing, super thick dark malts, loads of chocolate and coffee. Dark thick melted bakers choc, creamy like maybe oats, milk choc, etc. Great nutty coffee, lots of awesome coffee, fresh roasted coffee beans. Then mild caramel and toffee like characters, into mild booze characters, little warming slight tingly booze. so much creamy awesome coffee dark choc goodness. Finish is a bit dry but lots more dark malt, bakers choc, little bitterness, little dark choc oat character, great awesomeness.
Mouth is full bod, super thick little booze, decent carb.
Overall holy shit! This is up there with the best beers I've ever had. So much awesome, I'm glad I was able to try this. We had a slew of amazing beers on the night and this was the winner big time! Big thanks Chris!

Huge thanks to JLindros for sharing.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a motor oil hue with a nice one finger mocha head that left tremendous legs and leopardess spotty lacing. This is just incredible.
S - Aromas of TONS of coffee, dark and rich, creamy, smooth, iced coffee on the nose.
T - Taste is just incredible, stupendous coffee and chocolate notes, bitter roast, chocolate rich and bakers chocolate, super creamy and code, like a mocha cappuccino. Super nice bitter roast with a nice lingering creamy iced coffee notes, incredible.
M - Mouthfeel is just silly creamy delicious, just velvet goodness.
O - Overall this is an incredible beer, so much coffee especially on the finish. Drinks like an iced coffee with rich expensive coffee notes. Exceptional.
