Draft. Sample pour. Poured quite dark. Body looks reasonably viscous. Aroma is straightforward. Chocolate, roast, coffee, booze, fudge. Flavor is equally as direct. Fudgy and syrupy chocolate. Roasted malt. Some java. A slight sting of alcohol. Just a bit of burnt malt. Slight velvety feel. Creamy but the body isn't super viscous. This will get it done but don't expect anything you haven't experienced before.

Taste is cocoa, dark chocolate, roasted malt, and oats. The oats were a prominent taste and a nice surprise. Really enjoyed this beer and I ordered a second glass. Best thing I have had from Backlash.

Had this on tap at Russell House. No doubt this is a stout, so intensely dark and a small head to it. Nice crisp drink - not overly malty. This is a bit of a chocolate bomb on the tongue - a bit intense but a nice note of coffee combination. Liked this a lot - 9% a bit much for a lunch beer, but I will make sure to not do anything important today
