2014 vintage. Pours smooth no heat. Is jet black. Refreshing cool smell. Slight chocolate smell. A smooth roast malt taste. Is delicious. Feel silky smooth, not much of any carbonation. Oily, leave traces all the way down. Over all a great beer tasty would get again.

2013. Pours black with a mocha head that dissipates into a collar. Roasted malts, black strap molasses, and licorice on the nose. Tasty is predominately the same, with some bakers chocolate and malty sweetness balanced by some background bitterness. Smell and taste are reminiscent of Evil Twins's Even More Jesus. Oily mouthfeel but finishes a bit cleaner. Not my go to, but very good.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2012 bottle.

Appearance - Thick black body. Medium mocha head. Thin collar.

Smell - Licorice. Roasted malt and coffee. A little boozy.

Taste - Fruity. Licorice. Deeply roasted malt. Hefty bitterness. Fudgy in the back end. Boozy finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Medium carbonation. Definitely a sipper.

Overall - An intense and delicious stout. Excellent.
