This is the beast. Clocking it at nearly 17% ABV, it'll slap you around, but you'll come back for more. Well balanced despite the heaviness, and a good stout flavor underneath all that heft. When you want to go big instead of going home, this is your beer.

Nose: alcohol, chocolate, bourbon,
As brilliant deep dark brown one can get without being pitch black under an enormous 3" clingy, rocky, persistent, lacy foam cap that marks each drink with a ledge of lace.
Palate: A rich alcoholic chocolate bourbon malt drink that makes an excellent sitting by the fire after dinner drink.
Chewy, creamy, very soft fine medium carbonation, surprisingly well balanced and nuanced.
