From 08/19/14 notes. 22 oz bottle into a snifter, batch 414-415. Thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one.

Pours a dark mahogany color with one finger of tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Lots of dark chocolate, some soap, cream, vanilla. Taste has sweeter chocolate than the nose had. Medium body and low carbonation. Easy to drink and doesn't feel like 10.5% ABV.

Overall a very good American stout. Not too much going on but it is well made. Would pick it up again and somewhat frequently if it was easy to get.

4.04/5  rDev -0.5%

Appearance: pours jet black. Somewhat sticky, leaving some brown behind as I swirl it around. A small centimeter tan head that sticks around for ages and leaves a lacing on the sides. Completely opaque and dark.

Smell: strong coffee and rich dark chocolate. Lots of dark malt complexity, ranging from roasty, to dark caramels to dark fruit. Small alcohol bite.

Taste: opens up with bold espresso flavor. Quickly expands into a rich dark chocolate flavor. Roasted malts and burnt caramel. Small amounts of dark fruit. End has some strong but not over powering booze.

Mouthfeel: on the heavy side but not quite the heaviest. Lots of bitterness coming from the coffee and burnt flavors. Some alcohol astringency and heat. All the said it is very drinkable

Overall: even though I think the coffee is overly strong, I still think this is a very good almost great beer. Lots of bold and harsh flavors. I can't imagine what coffee break abduction is like though
