Thanks to Craft_Compulsive (Reddit) for this one.

Pours a dark fizzy head that attempts to rise up but fades fairly quickly like a high acidity or abv, so no real lacing due to that, but decent legs, midnight black color. 4

Nose brings lots of black malts and roast, some roasted malt out front, with a hint of char, as well as a hint of espresso and fresh roasted coffee beans, and a mild black malt aroma. Then some cocoa, dark caramel and fudgey cocoa, dark chocolate like, dark chocolate covered espresso bean candy like. Great aroma, hints of the char and roast without getting acrid or burnt, and nice coffee and cocoa. 4.5

Taste brings more roast and coffee to start, a little black malt and faint acrid roast with a touch of a burnt coffee. There is some fresh roasted coffee and a bit of espresso, but a bit more bitter and acrid as opposed to the nose. Some charred malts, black malt, with touches of cocoa and super bitter dark chocolate but not a lot this time either. Mild creamy choc, and touch of a fudgey flavor. Then hops kick in, bitter earthy spicy hops, that start fairly bitter and get very bitter on the finish. Finish lingers for a while with spicy bitter hops, chewy hops even, and a little sticky feel as it attempts to dry but not quite, bit more coffee and roasted malts and coffee beans lingering. 4

Mouth is med to heavier bod, a touch syrupy, light on the carb unfortunately. 3.5

Overall pretty good, it has a great nose, the taste had some good aspects but dropped off on the cocoa and fudge while increasing the roasty slightly acrid burnt notes and big on bitterness. It had some great characters and was tasty in general, but the lack of carbonation made this feel like it was a lot bigger and syrupier than it actually was. A bit more carbonation would have made the mouth pop a bit more and the flavors come out more, and I think it would have bumped up quite a bit. 4
