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!

Pours pitch black with a huge, deep brown head. Smells of tons of coffee, sweet milk chocolate, caramel, roastiness. Huge flavors of bitter coffee and bittersweet chocolate, roasty & smoky, huge maltiness, caramel, malted milkballs, alcohol is almost completely masked, immense aftertaste that lingers on the palate forever. Mouthfeel is very viscous, coating the mouth, very creamy, perfect carbonation, and slightly dry finish. One of the easiest drinking big beers ever. Dangerously smooth for 12% abv and simply Unbelievable. One of the great pearls of craft beer.
