Great smell, coffee, chocolate. Initial taste is understated. Strong coffee chocolate aftertaste. Otherwise very smooth. Easier to drink than most 8.5% beers.

Pours a dark brown practically black color, very thin almost non-existent head with no lacing on the glass.

Smell is all dark roasted malt, not picking up a hint of hops or much else other than a slight presence of chocolate.

Taste is dominated by roasted malt although it may be more appropriate to call it burnt malt, has a very bitter burnt flavor running throughout that controls everything, not sure coffee contributes much to the burnt bitterness since it's not overly coffee flavored but the bitterness is similar to a dark cup of joe, medium-low carbonation with decent stickiness, some cocoa peaks its head near the finish along with some sweetness after the burnt flavor wears off enough.

Poured into a shaker point glass.

The beer is a thick, dark chocolate blackness with brown barely coming through the edge when held up to light. A cream colored head dissipates to a fine wisp with light vertical lines of lacing.

The aroma brings out dark roasted malt, cocoa, and chocolate. The taste follows the aroma. There is a rich lactose sugar component in this that offsets any bitterness.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly dry.

Overall, this is tasty, but a little high priced at over $11 for a sixer. The 8.0% ABV is very sneaky.

A very Pleasant smell. A thick rich tasting stout. Good flavor but not super complex.
