Poured from a bomber into my newcastle goblet.
This pours jet-black, not a trace of light comes through, even when held up to light. Aggressive pour yields about an inch of beige head that fades to a thin film after a few minutes. Looks perfect
Smells strongly of chocolate, and coffee, with a slight tinge of alcohol.
The taste starts with very strong black coffee like you'ld get at a truckstop/diner with chocolate malt in the finish. I can not taste any alcohol here. I'm impressed!
Mouth feel is pretty thick and wet, and the carbonation is there, but feels soft and welcoming.
Overall this is a delicious beer. It reminds me of ballast point victory at sea without the vanilla, or alcohol burn. I'd put it right up there at the top.
This is a beer I will definitely be drinking again. I hate to give all 5's, but I can't find any faults in this beer.
