I caught this on tap randomly at one of my favorite beer bars, and I loved it. Super rich stout with great flavors going on - I'm not sure if they ever bottled it, but consider this a formal request.

On tap at the brewery:

Really smooth and creamy; a very dark brown body with a mocha-colored head. Lots of coffee and chocolate in both the nose and taste. Definitely delivers on par with Cigar City's excellent other stout offerings. Lots of creamy, chocolate milkshake flavor, with very little bitterness and just a touch of boozy heat. Liked it less than Good Night, Mekong, but it was still extremely good and very drinkable.

Pretty hot for the ABV, definitely made to make it over the high seas.

Rich, malty and roast goodness. Dangerously drinkable in my opinion. I get more coffee than chocolate on this beer but the Chocolate & Vanilla cask version was quite nice, as well.
