Black with a quickly dissipating head. Smells of dark chocolate and roast malts. Burnt malts, oatmeal, boozy edge, cocoa nibs, molasses. Heavy body, light carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel, chocolate and char aftertaste.

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.
