look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours black with a finger tan head.

Smell is super roasty, malt and espresso.

Taste is rich, lots and lots and LOTS of coffee. Roast is dominating. Bitter without being overpowering. Nothing else comes through.

Very drinkable. Waaayyy too much coffee and not enough beer.

A: Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Head doesn't stick around.
S: Tons of dark chocolate and coffee. A tiny bit of booze.
T: Wow. Dark chocolate and roast malts. Great balance of flavours. No harsh or astringent flavours. So smooth. Nice subtle warming finish.
M: Velvety, smooth and rich mouthfeel.
O: Masterpiece. Oats, chocolate, coffee and roast malts in perfect harmony.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Black as oil, tight head, mild lacing along the edges, noticeable viscosity that ebbs and flows like warm maple syrup - 4.50, S: First whiff provides strong licorice and molasses, very strong chocolate malt, heavy on the grain with definite burnt smells, thick espresso, hint of citrus - 4.25, T: The palate follows the nose - lots of dark to burnt grains, some strong coffees, a dry sweetness to this beer mixed with a bitter wallop, hops provide a strong piney bite, very full flavored, all-around an intense beer - 4.75, M: Heavy bodied and with a velvety embrace – 4.50, D: For an 8.3% beer, this in extremely drinkable would serve as the perfect dessert beer - 4.50
