A: pours jet black full bodied liquid, light wont go trough, thick beige/tan brownish foam with lots of lacing, mild carbonation. permanent foam ring as beer is drank. requieres aggresive pouring.
S: wonderful bouquet, intense roasted sweet malts, coffee, dark chocolate, toffee, dark burnt caramel, cookie dough. cant wait to taste it.
T: same as nose, wonderful taste, sweet, little bit salty end, bitternes is present but well rounded. mild bitter prolonged aftertaste.
M: full body, dense liquid, mild but adequate carbonation, silky, almost like chocolate milk.
O: delicious thick, silky, meal-like beer, excellent chocolate, caramel, coffee palate, 10% alcohol per volume, but masks it perfectly, can sip this all day in a cold winter, excellent brew.
one of my favourite stouts.

4.19/5 rDev +1%

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into KBS snifter, bottled in 2013. Bottle stored in cellar then briefly refrigerated prior to opening. Pours a beautiful jet black and forms a two inch foamy head that's beige in color. The head ultimately settles into a thin ring around the glass.
The nose is French roast coffee and milk chocolate, quite inviting. There's also a strong roasted malt aroma, followed by a spicy presence that hints of nutmeg. The taste is quite similar to its nose, bitter mocha, sweet molasses and roasted malt, fudge and spicy (chile ancho and nutmeg).
The mouthfeel of this beer is quite pleasant, almost no carbonation present which in my opinion helps savour the beer even better.
Overall - very excited to discover this beer, its quite enjoyable and hides the 10% ABV extremely well. Its sweet yet no overwhelmingly so and all of its flavors are well balanced.
