Deep mahogany in color with aromas of roasted coffee, molasses and dark chocolate. Subtly hopped, making it astonishingly smooth and easy drinking for such a big beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Aggressive pour yields a 2 1/2 finger head of uniform bubbles. The head is tan and does not retreat quickly. The beer is dark black with ruby red edges in the light.

S: I smell coffee and vanilla. Maybe some boozy smells also.

T: The front is coffee. The midpalate has some boozy flavors to it. Then I get a mix of the 2 in the finish.

M: Slightly higher than expected carbonation. Still relatively smooth and creamy.

O: I think the alcohol could be hidden a little better at 8.2%. That is drowning out a little of the other flavors. I expected a little more vanilla or roasted malt flavors to accompany the light coffee taste. Overall this is a middle of the road beer. Would not seek it out - but would not turn it down either.
