I don't drink coffee, not a chocoholic, yet this beer has transformed me like a goddamn werewolf or something. I'll forego the play-by-play of pouring the beer and staring at it before I drink it, Bob Costas, but I will tell you how it tastes.

It tastes like jumping in a fully-equipped Delorean, hitting 88 mph to go "Baaack in tiiime", and french kissing a 1940's Playboy pin-up girl just before brunch. It tastes like someone secretly replaced my ordinary stout with the love child of Juan Valdez and Betty Crocker after an all-weekend long brownie bender.

If you love beer, and you love things that taste good and (spoiler alert) make you feel just plain awesome, then...hey....try it!

Appearance: Black. Thin film of a head that dissipates quickly. No lace.

Smell: Amazing. Coffee, chocolate, lots of coffee. Maybe a little vanilla?

Taste: Follows the nose. Sweet chocolate up front transitions into a slightly bitter coffee taste. Outstanding.

Mouth feel: Smooth, thick, creamy.

Overall: I'm just starting to get into stouts, but this is really good. Prob the best I've had.
