Been waiting a long time for ten fidy to work it's way to massachusetts...
poured a pure black with a finger of dark brown head that lasted well for a high abv beer and left nice lacing all the way to the end of the glass.
smell is nice, mixture of roasty grains, coffee notes and a little chocolate.
more coffee along with a touch of baker's chocolate in the initial taste, finishes with a nice bitter hop note, more than i was expecting.
rich and creamy with the bitter finish helping to make sure the palate isn't left too coated. nice finish for such a strong beer.
excellent drinakbility for a RIS, alcohol presence only really starts to come through as the glass begins to warm.
i've read lots of hype about this beer over the last few months. it lived up to it, excellent example of the style! need more...

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.
