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!

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.
