A four pack of this will run you roughly $10 at any decent liquor store, what a bargain at that.
Cracked open the first bottle when I got home, and was immediately nailed by the fantastic aroma of this beer. Coffee and a dark, dark chocolate lead the symphony of flavors in this beer, accompanied by a silky, bitter hop and chocolate finish. This beer is a pleasure to drink, and a must try for any stout lover.

A- deep oily opaque black with a small tan head that leaves a bit of lacing.

S- huge nose that fills the room with dark cocoa, fruity coffee, molasses/rum, toffee and a little ash with the fruit and roast blending together nicely.

T/M- extremely creamy mouthfeel leaving a luscious dark chocolate, sweet espresso, light grain, and just a touch of dark fruit. Finish is long, relatively dry, bitter and a touch ashy with lingering hop and coffee bitterness covering the tongue.

O- an indisputably good beer with lots of components blending nicely. A touch lower bitterness may have made this more drinkable but at 8+% abv maybe that wouldn't be such a good thing.
