32oz growler into an oversized tulip glass. Pours a jet black in the glass, topped with a think head of milk chocolate colored foam. This maintains a rich ½ finger cap, soaping the sides of the glass with sticky lacing. The aroma has a lot of roast smokiness going on with it, almost like burnt coffee, with tangier notes of ripe citrus, chocolate and caramel all working themselves in as well. This is flavorful but seems like it could be a bit more robust in the nose. The taste is VERY burnt and roasty feeling, leaving a good bit of smoky char lingering on the tongue. Bitter green citrus is present, as is some mostly balancing chocolate sweetness but it’s that roast that really sets this off. The feel is full bodied and chewy with a bit of sharpness on the tongue. That 12% is just ridiculously well hid here and probably elevates this beer a bit above what it normally should be based on the flavors. This beer is very aggressive though, especially with the roast, and while it definitely packs a punch, I wish that there had been an overall greater complexity and depth to the flavors. Definitely not quite worth what I paid for this fill.

a - poured a one finger thick creamy tan head into a tulip glass that settled into a thin ring. the body was dark black.
s - chocolate, some coffee with a slight alcohol burn.
t - roasted coffee, chocolate, some dark fruits, alcohol burn.
m - kind of flat and thin.
o - i had high hopes for this but the carbonation level really took away from a promising beer. the heat went well with the beer.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Inky black. Stains the glass. Small head. Doesn't last.
Smell - A little smokey. Boozy as hell. Strong roasted malt. Licorice.
Taste - Sweet caramel. Licorice. Deep caramel. Smoke is more muted, but present. Sweet.
Mouthfeel - Thick. Low carbonation. Viscous and a little sweet.
Overall - Tasty stout. Tastes like it's smoked, but I can't find any info that it is.
