A - Jet black, no light shall pass. Two fingers of head billow and collapse into a sandy cap.
S - Dutch process cocoa powder, chocolate malt, roasty, bourbon, vanilla, ancho chiles
T - Dark chocolate, espresso crema bigtime, cinnamon, currant/prune, coconut cream. Sweet, but not cloying. Malty, but hoppy enough to keep it grounded
M - Absolutely luscious and viscous without being syrupy. Light carbonation. Big body.
This is definitely the best IS that seems to always be available somewhere in Nashville

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.
