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!

From notes on 5/12/14

Deep dark body. Poured with a one inch head. Very sweet cocoa smell. Very sweet chocolate coffee taste. Very good. Would love to try the ba version.
