Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!

This bottle was purchased a week ago at Jungle Jim's and is being shared with zep9865. This beer pours a viscous midnight black in color with a two finger, creamy dark khaki head. The aromas are of mokah and bitter cooking chocolate. There is a nice cream aspect to it that welds the coffee and chocolate together in a near perfect manner. It drinks like lightly roasted chocolate coffee beans with a touch of cream and a light boozy finish. It's also sweet but not too sweet. It's nice but the coffee features a little more bitterness when compared to a bevy of other stouts. The alcohol isn't very present for being so high in abv. This drinks exceptionally smooth and coats the palate with chocolate and coffee goodness. Overall this is a superb beer and definitely worth a try. If only I didn't have to drive to Cincinnati to get it!
