Had this at the jester king grand opening
Color was great, black with a cool orangish brown head that dropped to a sticky ring around the snifter.
Coffee, chocolate, caramel, and roasty aromas abound a little hint of vanilla as well as some licorice notes
The taste is wonderful, bitter coffee flavors up front with the roasted malts in there as well, the sweetness becomes more pronounced after a litte while and the chocolate and licorice flavors come through
Mouth feel isnt heavy but not watery either, it's a full bodied beer but not overbearing on the palate.
Very drinkable, when this comes out in bottles I'll be buying it by the case, the alcohol is nicel hidden by the flavors in the beer and it's not heavy enough to stop with just one bottle. It's every thing I want in a stout
I can't wait to age one!
Serving type: on-tap

Been sitting on this bottle for a while now, tonight seemed like the right night. Had it fresh and this one held onto since they went farms house on it...enjoyed from that jester king zwanze tulip.
a - brew pours a deep lush black with a nice dark brown cap that eventually dissolves down to a thin skin. Lacing is slippery and doesn't cling much.
s - nose is faded chocolate with some soft roast notes. Not really much to it. Very subdued. Little burnt.
t - comes alive on the first sip. Nice chocolate and roasted coffee. I had remembered this being a roast bomb but this is nice. Roast is still fairly aggressive but the oxidation puts the chocolate in a mellow place that sits right with the roast...and lends to some dark fruit sweetness which is really nice.
m - fairly soft and light. Easy drinker, almost thin even. Abc is invisible.
o - this beer is in a great place right now. Very enjoyable. Drink them if you got them!
