Consumed at the brewery on February 9th, 2014,

Beer is black with a little tan ring of foam around the edges of the glass.

Aroma is dark, bitter chocolate and coffee.

Flavor is intense roast flavor, nearly burnt. Baker's chocolate and over-roasted coffee. Rich, deep and not bitter enough to be a deal breaker, though you should not make the mistake of reading that and thinking it is not bitter enough. No alcohol present in flavor, which is a nice bonus as we close in on 10%.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with just a touch of carbonation tingle.

All is well with this beer. I'll be drinking you again, my friend.
