A friend of mine gave me a couple of bottles of this.

Dont review often,but figured I would put my 2 cents in on this one.

One of the thinner feeling 13+ abv beers I have had.Decent chocolate,coffee, and malt taste up front,some hop/fruit taste on the back end.Certainly not very complex considering the beers/brewers involved.Nice enough beer,but not outstanding.

Probably give my other bottle to a local bar for a tasting.

Serving type: bottle

Had on tap at FFF XV. One of two beers I managed to take notes on before my day got out of hand.

A- It was poured into a plastic cup. Shared a couple pours before grabbing one all to myself. Black beer, thick brown head that held on for dear life to that plastic.

S- Chocolate, coffee, and hops. This thing smelled pretty good.

T- Great flavor profile, the blend of beers made it a flavor monster, so much going on, all of it good. Starts with surprising hops before the chocolate, coffee malts and then a bit of alcohol near the end. Delicious.

M- A lot lighter than expected. But I liked how smooth it was, a little more carbonation than I thought. Crisp.

O- With all the hype this beer was bound to disappoint. But it didn't. It is really a great beer and considering the risk they took in making it I was happy camper drinking it on tap and taking home my bottles.

Serving type: on-tap
