Jet-black in color, this monster smells of coffee and chocolate. The taste is much of the same, with hints of creamy toffee and roasted malt. Smooth and delicious, this medium bodied ale is all about the malts, but has enough hop bitterness to be balanced.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Dark, deep brown. Head is tan and clings in a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Carbonation looks a little high for the style. Pours nice and smooth.

Smell: Booze, char, chocolate (both malt and real), some coffee and raisins. Lots going on here. Some sweet burnt caramel/toffee aromas as well. Faint biscuit dough quality on the back. Hops add a touch of citrus to the whole thing. Lots of roasted malts.

Taste: A thinner version of the nose. All the flavors are there, but they come across muted somehow. Tobacco and chocolate reign with some dry crust making up the backbone. A nice hit of sweetness and booze keep things fresh. Flavors tend to play over one another rather than with one another. Dark fruit in the back as well.

Mouthfeel: A little thin. Carbonation is definitely on the high side and ends up drying the whole things out. Flavor lingers for a good bit.

Overall: Smells amazing, but loses some appeal after a few sips. The flavors tend to hit and disappear and never really come together. All in all, it's decent.

12 oz can poured into a New Belgium globe
Drank on September 27th. Reviewed from notes.

A- deep brown with a white, somewhat foamy head that fades to a bubbly ring around the glass. The head leaves a sticky trail of lacing in its path.

S- roasted malts, coffee, faint vanilla and toffee, maybe cinnamon?

T- chocolate, vanilla, toffee, and a bitter coffee at the finish.

M- medium to thick with a light carbonation.

O- Good stuff. I would say that this is the best canned stout I have had if it wasn't for TenFidy. Thanks to KMatlack for this great brew!
