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!

Poured from a 750 mL bottle with a bottled on date of 10/24/13; into a pint glass.
Appearance - shadow black, no light; thick, creamy mocha head. Lacing is thick, but scattered.
Smell - coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruit and vanilla.
Taste - robust and flavorful coffee and dark chocolate. This is a big and tasty brew!
Feel - big and bold; creamy and complex!
Overall - this is as good as I imagined! Very pricey, but worth treating yourself if you like really big stouts.
