This beer lived up to the hype - huge coffee and chocolate. ABV very well hidden - well crafted.

EBF sample. Pours syrupy and black. The beer sticks to my sample cup. Aroma is impressive. Coffee and chocolate, both very bold. Maybe a little bit of dark fruit. The flavor is immense and filled with bitter coffee and espresso along with dark chocolate. Faint dark fruit. It's mostly a big one-two punch of coffee and chocolate but it's done very well. Espresso bean finish. Full, thick and oily feel. Some alcohol heat. Great feel with lingering bitterness. I wish I had this on my radar earlier.
