Pours a very dark brown - almost black, with small beige head. Rich aroma consisting of malt, coffee, and caramel. Tasted very similar to a mocha. Included hints of roasted wood and malt. Slight tinge of hops and smoke in taste. If you like smokey flavored drinks this is the beer for you.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance is a dark brown to black color with a finger of beige head. There is a slight roastiness to the nose. The flavor profile leads and finishes with healthy roast and the finish has a sweet quality to it. The body is robust and substantial, but this offering is not quite as big as the best double stouts around.

4.3/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance:
Dark body, almost pitch black, in fact all light seems to get trapped in its inner core much like a black hole. The head is a nice thick and fluffy tan organism that reminds me of the sirens of old, singing to me as if to draw me in just to feed on me.
Smell:
The aroma dark and sweet, heavy with coffee and chocolate, mild figs and light raisin. The alcohol is nicely drawn out.
Taste:
A strong coffee and chocolate flavor dominates the palate, sweetness completely envelopes your tongue.
Mouthfeel:
This is a full bodied ale, thick and warming to the drink
Overall:
Smooth, relaxing and fun to drink, this is a good stout.

Serving type: bottle
