A- Settles into the glass with a pitch black body and a huge, frothy, mocha-colored head. The head dissipates quickly, but leaves a ton of sticky lacing behind.
S- Tons of roasted malts and piney hops. Hints of vanilla and baker's chocolate.
T- Really similar to the aroma. A huge roasted malt RIS with an insane hop presence and hints of chocolate and vanilla. Somewhat sweet, lots of roastiness, tons of bitterness.
M- Full-bodied, palate-numbing bitterness, medium carbonation, but a slight carbonation tingle.
O- Just a massive beer with a huge body and huge bitterness. Troegs wasn't kidding when they came out with a beer for the end of the world.

12oz bottle into tulip. Thanks Josh!
A: Pours black and viscous with a dense finger of mocha colored head that slowly faded into a faint collar.
S: Huge and rich notes of deep dark malt, dark chocolate, sweet fudge brownie, leather, and maybe a hint of dark fruit. Very rich smelling but there is not a trace of alcohol to be found.
T: Follows the nose with potent flavors of lightly bitter dark chocolate, sweet fudge, deep roasted malt, and dark leather. I get notes of blackberry and dark fruits in the finish, and the aftertaste is full of lingering chocolate and roast.
M: Huge full body, viscous and extremely chewy mouthfeel, and very airy and frothy carbonation that bubbles up in my mouth after each sip. No trace of alcohol burn, almost no bitterness. Very smooth and decadent.
O: I was pleasantly surprised by how good this one was. Nothing the most complex stout, but it doesn’t have anything off putting to me. I never had it fresh, but after couple years in the bottle this is drinking perfectly. Thanks again StormKing47.

A dark tan head rests calm and thick across this black and brown brew.
Aroma is rich with milk chocolate, caramel, plum and raisin. Got mincemeat? Yes.
Tastes dry and woody up front. Its syrupy with the caramel finding place after a few sips. Some cardamom, dark fruit and licorice find their way. Can be astringent at times.
Heavy for sure, but warming all the way through makes for a nice sipper on a cool spring eve.
