22 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Enjoy by date of 1/15/14. Consumed on 11/20/13.
A - Brown approaching black with a half finger of light brown small bubble head. Head lasted for a while and left well-defined rings around glass as liquid receded. Visually appealing.
S - Cream, vanilla, dark chocolate, and roasted coffee beans. No booziness.
T - Wow. Chocolate covered espresso beans crossed with a damn good cup of coffee with a beautiful vanilla sweetness. Phenomenal. Lasting dark chocolate/vanilla sweetness with a slight hint of dark fruit. Perfectly mellow. Hides ABV, yet warming.
M - Smooth as silk, creamy, and a wonderful tingle in the mouth.
O - I loved this. I will buy it whenever I see it and recommend you do the same.

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!
