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!

Bought bottle in 2011, opened October 2013.

A - Thick coffee black body. Tall, creamy, dark cocoa head. Great retention and lace.

S - Bourbon, coffee grinds, oak, caramel, honey, white booze.

T - Thick coffee, worcestershire sauce, dry oak, burnt molasses. Dry, 80% cocoa dark chocolate finish.

M - Thick, creamy, full body. Soft finish.

O - An excellent double coffee stout. The worcestershire note is the only thing holding this beer back.
