Doesn't get much darker than this brew. Thick black stout. Strong coffee and chocolate aroma. Very heavy. So thick you can almost chew it. Sweet chocolate up front followed by a coffee bitterness. Fantastic.

12oz bottle. Pours black with a half finger of brown head. Smells of dark chocolate and roasted grains. Medium feel. Moderate bitterness with rich oat, coffee, and chocolate flavors. Excellent, love world-class beers that are easy to find.

Finally got the chance to try this beer.
Look: Black with a dark brown head. Deep red when held up to the light.
Smell: Coffee
Taste: Mildly bitter start with a sweet aftertaste. Lots of coffee and chocolate. Not very boozy at all, which is impressive for such a high alcohol content.
Feel: Very creamy

This one is definitely going into the rotation. One of my favorites!

It's strange that I've never had this until this week. I guess because of the relatively high abv. It's potent, but not especially boozy, which can be a dangerous combination! Anyway, it tasted of chocolate with some coffee notes. A friend thought it smelled more of coffee. It's excellent, though I split part of my bottle with a generous host.
