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!

2012/13 vintage... (black foil)

A: Pours a deep pitch black with one full finger of guiness like light mocha head. The foam settles in a normal amount of time, leaving a ton of lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is malt, milk chocolate, coffee, and a touch of vanilla. It smells like a cookie. Wonderful.

T: It starts out sweet with huge chocolate and coffee notes. The beer finishes the same way. Start to finish, it's wonderful.

M: Full bodeied beer. It's syrupy, coating, smooth and delicious.

O: Fantastic beer. It's a chocolate bar melted down, mixed with coffee, thinned out with alcohol, and bottled. It's great. I've had this beer before, but this is the first bottle that I truly loved. I plan on grabbing a few more of this batch to throw down in the cellar.
