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!

This pours a very dark brown color with a creamy brown head. The aroma is full of robust malts and coffee making it very inviting. The flavor is rich, bold, complex and extra silky smooth. There is so much robust flavor here my taste buds are going wild. This is just as good as I could have expected and then some. You get all the alcohol warmth without any of the obvious taste. After finally having it, it’s easy to see why this is as highly regarded as it is.
