This is a pretty strong beer. Now doubt about it. This is a pitch black brew. Evan the foam is bark. It has a heavy roasted chocolate and caramel odor to it. The taste is very harsh at first. Though it really mellowed out while drinking it. Not sure if it needed to breath or just warm up. Similar to a red wine. In the end, it was a heavily malted, coffee tasting beer. The mouthfeel is ok.

Overall, this is a goodbeer. Definitely better after it breathed some.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12oz can into a snifter, looks of spent motor oil! A dirty copper, light brown head even resembles such.

The smell brings on licorice, roasted coffee, and sweet chocolate. Very pleasant.

Subtly sweet with hints of chocolate and coffee. Almost like the best espresso I've ever had, minus the hop bitterness that bites as soon as it hits the tongue. Taste is right on key, and so drinkable at 10.5% abv. Amazing, it's hard to drink it slow!

It's smooth, silky, and leaves a coating almost like milk does in your mouth that stings of hops and the taste of roasted chocolate.

Very good stout, hand's down one of my favorites and glad I got to finally try it. If you can find one, drink it. Oskar Blues did a very good job here!
