The NothingThe Nothing
Notes: You hold in your hand a beer so dark, so rich, you may lose yourself as you fall into the never-ending depths of temptation. The Nothing exists to be the most decadent dark Chocolate Imperial Stout. You have met your greatest foe. Now defeat it.

Darkly roasted chocolate malts are combined with 2 types of cacao nibs creating a balance between subtle chocolate cake decadence and residual malt sweetness to pull you deeper into the complexity of The Nothing.

Don't be afraid of the dark.

This is my first official review on BA!

This is my first Smog City beer, and I gotta say it was awesome.
Though this beer is boozy, it is very drinkable. Tastes of dark chocolate and dark fruit. One of the better chocolate stouts I've had.

Black color with dark brown head. Aroma has some milk chocolate and cocoa drink. Taste is a bit ashy with burnt malt notes, dark malt, a bit weird on the finish with stale cacao notes. Medium body, soft carbonation. Decent stout but not something to remember.
