Poured into a pint glass.

3.75 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy tan head. Retention is good and a short ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Lots of roasted barley and semi-sweet chocolate in the nose. Dark roast coffee, char, and molasses to follow. On the drier side with a heavy roast character.

3.5 T: Tastes like it smells, however, it is sweeter than the nose. Lots of roasted barley with mild char, bitter chocolate, cocoa powder, dark roast coffee. Layers of caramel with some milk chocolate added.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Fairly creamy and super smooth with a slight bitter aftertaste.

3.5 D: Decent all around. No complaints, but no real praises either.

This is one of the best tasting stouts I've had, very flavorful. The one I had was 7.5% ABV, though.

The beer comes in a black color with a thick mocha fluffy head.

The flavor is milk chocolate and mocha, hints of coffee, but with lots of woody and earthy hops in the middle and on.

The mouthfeel is fluffy and medium plus.

The beer has lots of similarities to Darkness.
