Pours black with a 1 finger coffee colored head. Laces out evenly across the top and clinging to the sides.
Smells like I just brewed a cup of joe and tossed in a white chocolate bar. A little nutty like candied roasted nuts.
Tastes of roasted french vanilla. A lot of deep malty undertones. A slight bitterness of chocolate. Also the malts have a faint smokey character.
The 10% is not that noticeable but you can tell there is a good amount of alcohol in this one.
Split a bomber with a friend and was satisfied with my half.

This poured the color of midnight at a bottom of a well, with an espresso-crema cap of foam.
The aroma held layers of dark chocolate and roasted coffee, roasted malts, a hint of vanilla. It’s a sipper, with a smoothly warming flavor of a sweetly bitter espresso with cacao and vanilla, and just a touch of booziness at the end. This is a big beer but so enjoyable!
