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!

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A beastly 4 inch head erupts to the top of the glass. Huge rocky carmel colored foamy bubbles slowly receed. Body is absolutely onyx black. Nose is vibrant, as you can smell it as soon as you open the bottle. Massive spicey coffee tones and sweet maltiness is evident. Enters the mouth with an array of flavors, initially thick rich alchol laced coco. Zesty spiced coffee swells all over the tongue. Mineral based hop bitterness finishes out the well rounded palate. This beer is very big and super thick on the mouth. Hop and coffee bitterness hangs on to the back of the tongue. Noticeable alchol is a consistant factor throughout the flavor profile. Drinkability, well you can feel good about sharing the bottle with a friend.
