From BeerAdvocate Magazine #87 (Apr 2014):

Coffee, Chocolate, Delightful

A twist on 2nd Shift’s LSD, brewed with an Ethiopian roast called Aramo Grande 1 from Blueprint Coffee. Only 35 cases were bottled. Big, freshly ground coffee nose rising from a most impressive coffee colored, foaming head with. Viscous, creamy, roasty, charred raisins, milk chocolate, toffee, molasses, but not overly sweet. The is a straight up, coffee loaded, bigass Stout that was indeed a delight to try.

Pours black and you can tell it's thick. The head is big, brown, and sticks around. The nose is a lot of chocolate with a roasted background. The flavor is a lot of chocolate, some roasted malt, and dark fruit at the end. This has a full feel, as chewy as a stout can get. This is a great stout! The name is very fitting.

on tap at Baileys range, served in tulip

pour is dead black with a cocoa creamy and frothy head.

loads of roasted malt with a hint of chocolate and sugar

heavy on the roasted malt all around. bits of charcoal blended with a subtle sweetness. some dark chocolate mixed within.

light and easy, mild carbonation, a bit dry

easy drinking, enjoyable, no hint of this being 7.10% abv, i would have though closer to 5.5.

750 mL bottle. Pours thick. Big mocha head. Leggy and sugary looking. Smell is boozy. Roasted malt. Dark chocolate. Tastes just about the same. Boozy. Lots of dark chocolate. Molasses. Heavyand very sweet. Too big for my tastes. Needs a bit less sweetness.

A - pours a thick black with a big mocha head that does dissipate after a little while
S - chocolate, vanilla, umami, burnt marshmallow, dark and roasted Malts
T - sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, burnt marshmallow, cream, balanced by roasted malts, burnt.marshmallow and some alcohol
M - big thick milkshake feel, alcohol surprisingly well covered at 11.5%, aftertaste is milk chocolate.
O - this is another big beer that only comes in bomber form that I have to dock for the price. 12 bucks/bomber is too much. I'd like to see this in 4 packs of 12s for 12 bucks, then I'd probably buy it on the reg.
