Availability: Year-round

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!

dark black licorice in color. pours with little brown head. seems to leave little to none lacing residue, good taste, hint of coffee at end, good damn beer if you're into stouts..not as tangy as i would like with a stout, however i prefer more of a tang in the mid-taste range myself. overall smooth drinking stout with lots of flavor. a little pricey at $12 a pint, however you're getting what u pay for
