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.

A: Pours an opaque thick jet black in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and faint dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy mocha colored head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark chocolate, dark fruits (alcohol soaked figs & prunes), roasted malts, and coffee. Hints of anise/licorice are present as well.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of dark roasted malts which is quickly overtaken by the moderate flavors of dark chocolate and coffee. That is followed by a light to moderate flavor of dark fruits (alcohol soaked fig + prunes) with a light amount of sweetness. Hints of anise and minimal amounts of bitterness are present towards the finish. Light notes of alcohol/booziness in the finish.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Hints of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: Relatively easy to drink and enjoyable with notes of both RIS and BSDA flavors/aromas. Alcohol is pretty well hidden though this one is more of a sipping beer.
