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!

Can't figure out any reasons to lower this from a perfect score.

The appearance is a gorgeous black with a monstrous toffee colored head.

Tastes initially of a slight sweetness then gives way to a pronounced coffee flavor. This eventually fades away leaving a wonderful roasty and chocolaty taste.

This beer has the mouthfeel of a regular type stout not a high ABV % stout. I feel like I could drink this all night.

What a wonderful beer. Wish I had easier access to it but I will surely buy it every time I come across it. I highly recommend it to anyone, one of the best stouts I have had.
