Appearance- Pitch black with very thin bubbly mocha head.

Smell- Coffee, coca, chocolate malts. Thats about it. Very nice though.

Taste-Coffee, malts, light chocolate. One sided, but still tasty. Light booze.

Mouthfeel- Very light and smooth. Impressively so actually. Light carbonation. Light Booze heat.

Overall- This is a nice beer. I do like FBS better though.

2012 vintage. The beer was poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass after sitting at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Appearance: The pour is a pure, deep black with a frothy chocolate covered head. Retention is excellent for this style and the carbonation looks very fine and spread out.

Smell: The aroma hits you the second the top is cracked. Fresh malt assails the senses, so much so that it’s hard to smell anything else. There is a hint of alcohol, fresh coffee grinds, and chocolate malt along with an interesting biscuit maybe even oatmeal cookie aroma.

Taste: Lots of sweet dark malt, a nutty biscuit quality, followed by the bitterness of a fresh black coffee, chocolate nibs, and more malt for a very pleasing finish. Alcohol is rather present in this beer, which is a bit surprising given its malt presence.

Mouthfeel: Like slushing finely carbonated motor oil through ones mouth. A very chewy yet aesthetically pleasing feel, and definitely a full-bodied brew. There is a drying essence to this beer that almost requires you to take another drink after only a few moments.

Drinkability: Moderately drinkable, especially at 8.1% abv. This isn’t a beer that could be drank one after another, unless one were spending an evening in an igloo, that being said, it would be a great way to wake up in the morning, maybe with some bacon and sausage before one dons flannel and heads out to chop fire wood for the hearth.
