This was another big on my wants list, thanks to HanksBeard (reddit), shared at the CCB bottle share night.

pitch black color, stains the glass, long legs, no real head,

Nose awesome dark malt stout, choc, cocoa nibs, very mild chili note, big dark choc, vanilla, coffee, little nutty and roast, little brandy like fruity barrel note.

Taste is phenomenal, dark creamy melting choc, cocoa, buttery coconut oak, fruity brandy notes and little vanilla barrel, little earthy hop, mild peppery spicy note, so much melting cocoa, etc. Finish is more vanilla, barrel, long spicy pepper but not overpowering, little vanilla barrel note, mild fruity.

Mouth is fuller bod, creamy lush, thick, decent carb, mild warming booze and mild pepper.

Overall great, very good but just wish the brandy came through a bit more, it's hard to get through the huge awesome base beer.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice oily black with a thin mocha halo.

S - Aromas of coconut, cinnamon, vanilla, brandy, delicious.

T - Taste is just like the nose, coconut, cinnamon, vanilla, brandy, chocolate, light malts and smoke. Super tasty, really drinkable.

M - Mouthfeel is smooth, nice drinking, alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this beer was much better than ba abraxas. Delicious.
