A - It's obsidian. Opaque through the middle with the tiniest ability of light to pass through around the edges. Pour as vigorous as you like, you won't get a head on this viscous bad boy.
S - You can really smell the alcohol in here, but hey, this is a legit high gravity beer so you're getting what you pay for. The other smells are licorice, hops and mocha coffee cocao (yes, all three).
T - Having recently had actual molasses, I can confidently say ths is the beer equivalent. (I know fermented molasses is really rum, but I'm talking flavor not distillery/brewery science.)
M - This is so viscous it's almost hard to swallow, but if I don't swallow it I don't get to drink any more. That would be a tragedy.
D - You can have one of these. You want another? Well you can't appreciate it if you try to have more than one at a time! You'll like the one you have, but you shouldn't have another. If one wasn't enough it's YOUR fault, not the beer's.

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.
