Pours a clear, deep brown, with ruby highlights, so dark as to appear black, producing a huge 3+++ fingers of mocha, moderately lasting, frothy head that leaves beautiful, clumpy webs of lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malt, Baker's cocoa, rich dark chocolate, roasted nuts & coffee with hints of molasses & a faint touch of dark fruit. Taste is overwhelmingly Hershey's chocolate syrup, followed by dark roasted malts & slight burnt notes, hints of cola & coffee with a hop bitterness appearing at mid-sip. The dry finish exhibits a slightly burnt, unsweetened cocoa & low caramel like sweetness. Aftertaste is dry, bitter chocolate, roast & a more exaggerated burnt note than in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low-moderate carbonation, chewy, creamy & smooth.

I normally would not write a review as short as this but folks should be aware that purchasing this is risky. A friend shared a bottle of this with me this weekend and it was either a terribly executed oatmeal stout or grosely infected. All sour fruit with carbonic and mineral character.
