look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle.

A- Pours a black motor oil color. No light passing through this beer. 2 finger mocha tan colored head that leaves lacing down the sides of the glass as I drink.

S- Nice semi-sweet chocolate roast malts in the front end of this. Light coffee notes come and go along with some light anise notes coming and going. Alcohol in the tail end of the nose but nothing too overwhelming.

T- Semi-sweet chocolate notes mix with some heavy roasted malts in the front of the taste. Some light coffee mixes in taking place of the chocolate toward the middle. Light hints of something with toasted oak in this as well....I might be searching too hard for this though. Alcohol in the tail end a little heavier than in the aroma.

M- Heavy mouthfeel. Carbonation is good with the style. Roasted malts left on the palate along with some light alcohol in the aftertaste. Oil slickness left everywhere in the mouth. Clean tasting with some crisp roasted flavors.

D- This is a very good...ok it's a greast year around beer that I can't get enough of. Good beer within the style and would recommend to anyone!
