2014 Edition poured into snifter

A - Black, with a creamy looking mocha colored head that dissipates pretty quickly, but leaves a nice film and significant lacing.

S - Strong deeply roasted, almost burnt malts, dark chocolate, some coffee.

T - Dark chocolate, expresso, dark chocolate/cocoa powder. Charred barley and coffee beans gives it a very bitter taste.

F - I wouldn't consider it really full bodied, but does have a fairly creamy texture. Average amount of carbonation.

O - This beer has some really good flavors and feel, but it is a little short of outstanding for me because of the amount of bitterness. I think the coffee profile is way short of Founders Breakfast Stout, so that surprised me. Almost comes across as hoppy like a Victory Storm King. Still very good though.
