One of the best stouts on the market. High ABV with no evidence in the taste.

Pours like 30 weight oil. vanilla head half finger then dissipates to a light film on top. coffee and chocolate very pronounced. Alcohol is very present. very smooth beer.

To me, super easy drink. mostly coffee with chocolate undertones.. it's a 'got to be in the mood beer' for me but when in the mood, it's great. goes well on a stout night~
in my experience, ages well in the bottles, going on 2 yrs

Amazing stout, chocolate and coffee flavors are pronounced but don't dominate. My only complaint is it's only available in the fall/winter.

Sum more than the parts on this one. Interesting aroma consisting of jalapeños and coffee. Perfect medium to heavy mouthfeel with a chocolate and spicy finish. The alcohol is hidden in the finish.
