Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 11-09-2002

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 a pitch black with a nice two finger milk chocolate head. Great retention. Leaves patchy lacing down the glass.

On the nose is rich roasted coffee. Big dark malts. Bittersweet chocolate. The coffee smells very very fresh here.

Taste is very coffee heavy. Roast dark coffee and bitter chocolate. Alcohol is present on the aftertaste.

Big chewy mouthfeel as you would expect from a stout. Good carbonation as well.

Bought bottle in 2011, opened October 2013.

A - Thick coffee black body. Tall, creamy, dark cocoa head. Great retention and lace.

S - Bourbon, coffee grinds, oak, caramel, honey, white booze.

T - Thick coffee, worcestershire sauce, dry oak, burnt molasses. Dry, 80% cocoa dark chocolate finish.

M - Thick, creamy, full body. Soft finish.

O - An excellent double coffee stout. The worcestershire note is the only thing holding this beer back.
