On tap at 101 Bottles. Pours a dark black with a thick dark head to match. The aroma is of dark malts, chocolate, and coffee. The complexity here is great and the coffee like flavors are ones i really enjoy in stouts. There is little hop bitterness here but it works well in this beer. It's well balanced and the alcohol is masked pretty well too. This is my first beer from Ballast Point and certainly won't be my last.
Serving type: on-tap

Black in color with no reddening around the edges and a finger of coffee colored head. The nose has a roasted malt character that takes on coffee and burnt toast notes, plus strong alcohol and a hint of dark fruit. It has a dark chocolate taste with char, coffee, berries, grapes, and bitter hops on the back end. There's a burning sensation from the alcohol, which is 10% by volume and very much apparent in the beer. It may not sound like it all works together, but it does. Goes down silky with a medium body.
