Availability: Year-round

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!

750ml bottle pours dark very nice head smells of dark chocolate roasted barley and hints of alcohol but the prevailing smell is that of chocolate waiting for head to subside tastes of chocolate with a faint smoked woodiness and finishes smooth with hints of alcohol but leaves a smooth chocolated taste in your mouth feel is right for this style the only thing to say is a tiny bit too thin but that is over looked i could definitely drink a few glasses

i recommend this beer to any one that can obtain it and it is definitely worth for even a trade you cant go wrong with alesmith

Poured on-tap at the San Diego Brewing Co brewpub. They had it on for a guest tap while we were visiting. The beer poured jet black, with a thin, tan head. There was a milk chocolate nose, with hints of bitter toffee. The beer has flavors of coffee, nut, and chocolate, with bitter coffee undertones. The beer carries creamy flavors on a dry body, very well blended and balanced. The aftertaste is a blend of bitter and molasses, with a crisp finish. The beer has lingering tastes of sweet toffee. Very easy and smooth to drink.

Serving type: on-tap
