Bottle aged almost 1 year old, I am assuming.
Appeared jet black with a caramel colored head one finger in size, poured into a snifter.
Big aroma of roasted coffee beans, chocolate, and notes of vanilla.
Its taste offers coffee up front. I then notice dark chocolate cake... Amost like a booze-soaked cake, though the beer isn't overly boozey. A touch of toffee comes to mind. Mocha lingers on the finish.
Full mouthfeel. Chewy. Not very slick...more so dry, which i love.
Overall this is decadent and beautiful. Hard to find a fault here. Its coffee and chcolate flavors are in nice balance,unlike some other coffee stouts. A real treat.
