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!

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Pitch black appearance with a two finger dark tan head that dissipates pretty slowly and leaves nice lacing.

Chocolate and coffee to the nose. Nothing too complicated but very inviting.

The taste immediately gives me chocolate and coffee but neither is overpowering. In the aftertaste, the coffee dominates. Plenty of roasted malts. Delicious. Not as much alcohol heat as I expected.

Thick, creamy mouthfeel and pretty low carbonation. This is a pretty filling beer.

The low carbonation makes it easier to drink, but this is definitely still a sipping beer.
