A - I was shocked when I saw how black and viscous this beer was when I poured it! It almost looked like chocolate syrup, or black motor oil. This beer is crayon black with a mocha brown head.
S - Smells sweet and chocolatey, roasty and thick. Some tangy and earthy scents too.
T - This beer has huge flavor. Plenty of thick bitter coffee. Roasty, toasted, burnt hops. A little hop tang and malt sweetness. Nice semi sweet chocolate present. Smokey in the air of your mouth. There is a slight tangy/acidic note I can't quite identify. All of this going on with a little alcohol warmth to boot.
M - Very viscous and syruppy. Ive had thicker bodied beer but this is up there. However its incredibly smooth and silky rich. A little carbonation to tingle your taste buds and add another dimension to this stout.
O - A truly insane stout. This beer is delicious and addicting all while being ruthless and mean, punching you in the mouth and face. Get this beer.

4.64/5 rDev +5.9%

Poured from the 12oz. can into a snifter.
This amazing brew purs a deep, inky and oily black with about a one-finger head that fades into some lingering foam around the egde. Only a bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma is roasty malt -- the darkest of dark chocolate, roast coffee, rich black tea. There are also notes of dark dried fruit .
The taste is an assault on the tongue. Intense. Chocolate, a bit of sweet toffee and raising and then big, bitter dark chocolate. The lingering, drying bitter note on the tongue has hints of more chocolate and roast coffee and malty Assam tea.
The mouthfeel is creamy and sticky with a bit of carbonation as well.
Overall, just wow. This beer does not disappoint. One of the best stouts I've tasted.
