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!

A- Black as night with a thick tan head. A little lacing and alcohol legs cling to the glass as it fades.

S-Chocolate, coffee, malts, maybe some dark fruit. The alcohol is detectable but well hidden.

T- Chocolate/coffee up front with a bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Again, alcohol is present but certainly doesn't taste like 12%. Very balanced.

M- Medium to full and creamy. The flavor balance in this beer is just great.

O- A very well crafted I. Stout. Def. one of the most balanced beers I've tasted.
