A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with light amounts of gentle carbonation along the edges of the glass and hints of dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy tan head that slowly reduce to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of sweet milk chocolate with light aromas of freshly brewed coffee and hints of roasted malts.

T: Upfront there is a strong flavor of sweet milk chocolate which is followed by moderate flavors of roasted malts and roasted coffee. Overall the beer is pretty sweet with a light amount of bitterness in the finish which fades quickly.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slick upfront with some light amounts of dryness and alcohol warming in the finish.

O: This beer is fairly sweet and pairs really nicely with dessert - in my case leftover 1st birthday cake from my daughter's birthday party over the weekend (vanilla cake with vanilla frosting). The alcohol is pretty well hidden but due to the sweetness, this is a sipping beer. Quite enjoyable.

"This beer reeks of chocolaty goodness, not much coffee in the aroma, hopefully more in the flavor...nope! this beer is ALL CHOCOLATE!! Even more so than "Young's double chocolate stout! Too much chocolate in my opinion, cant even really taste the roasted malts or any coffee either....

The beer comes in a dark black color with a bit of light in the bottom of the glass with a fluffy espresso head.

The aroma is just huge. It smells like fresh black coffee with some of that sweet roasted malt that comes in these big sweet stouts. Then there's some milk chocolate in there too.

The flavor follows with some really dark bitter chocolate. Then it hits you with tons of black coffee. It's quite a sweet beer with a pronounced coffee flavor. The finish has this wonderful earthy bitterness from the Chinook and Columbus hops.

The body is actually medium for a big beer like this. However, that works with the beer being like a mocha coffee, so it has that thin mouthfeel. The alcohol is completely hidden on this.

This really wowed me. It's up there with Victory at Sea and Peche Mortel with beers that really show off coffee well.
