12 oz bottle from a four pack at FmcD's poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a syrupy jet black. Little to no head. It always seems odd when there is no head.

S - Chocolate, roasted malts, coffee

T - More of the same as the nose, with some smoke and licorice. The alcohol is well masked.

M - A touch below perfect. A good balance between being creamy and carbonated.

O - A meal in a glass. Always worth a try, breakfast or otherwise, especially in the winter months.

This made me sign up so I can start logging my reviews.

I really feel like this is the perfect stout. Had it on tap at Mexi-q in the Upper East Side. Perfect blend of coffee, chocolate and even hints of pine with the perfect amount of carbonation. At 8.3% it is definitely something to savor and the mouthfeel is what makes this beer elite...I can only describe it as a million little angels dancing on your tongue with every sip.

Dark, strong flavor and color. The coffee and chocolate flavors are noticeable but not overpowering. There's a good balance of sweetness and bitterness. It pours from a 12oz bottle with only a slight head which is a rich brown in color. It has a rich mouthfeel with small, slightly sharp carbonation.
