A - Pours black with a dark brown head. Looks like motor oil. Leaves decent lacing and head slowly dissipates into a thick brown ring around the glass.
S - Chocolate and brownies. Bitter bakers chocolate. Dried fruit, maybe fig. Very little alcohol. Smells great.
T - Loads of chocolate. Some nice roastiness with a little bitterness towards the end. Similar to the bitterness associated with coffee. The alcohol is completely hidden which is amazing considering the high abv.
M - Thick and creamy. Good carbonation for the style. Very smooth.
D - Extremely easy to drink. Had to stop my girlfriend from drinking it all. Could probably drink 3-4 of these in a night and regret it in the morning.
This is an extremely good beer. Almost perfect. Would love to try a barrel aged version.

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.
