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!

Almost a year on it, bottled 9/3/13.

Pours pitch black with brown edges. Nice initial head with a couple trails of lace.

Coffee, caramel, toffee, sugar in the nose.

Caramel, coffee, toffee, vanilla flavors, with hints of blueberry/plum. Lingering pine/dark chocolate finish with a twinge of booze.

Creamy lush mouthfeel.

I'm a sucker for these kinds of beers, but this is exceptionally well done. Wouldn't mind being able to get this on a regular basis.
