This beer had all the makings for a great beer, but it was far too heavy and by after a fourth of the beer, I was over it. If it wasn't too thick, this beer would of been amazing. Frankly, I was very disappointed by it. I still have faith in Brash, though.

Found this beer at some store or other in Grand Rapids. Not familiar with this brewery. Poured into North Coast tulip.

A - Jet black, with tan head which receded awfully quickly, leaving no lacing. Entirely opaque.

S - Smoky chocolate, cocoa nibs

T - Plenty of bitterness, with an initial richness brought on by the lactose which is very pleasant. However, the initial flavour writes cheques which the body can't cash - fades quickly, and leaves very little but nondescript bitterness on the finish.

M - This is the only thing really holding the beer up. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous, with ideal carbonation. I suspect any impression of richness in the taste owes a lot to the mouthfeel of this brew.

O - Disappointing for the price. A study in viscosity, and not much else. I will not purchase this again.

Pours a dark as night black hue with a khaki two finger head that stays and slowly recedes to look like a cake gone wrong with dimples everywhere and lacing everywhere the head has been,the smell is Booze,dark chocolate,a touch of vanilla and tobacco,the mouthfeel is full bodied with minimal carbonation and the taste is definitely dominated by the dark chocolate it really is big but i still get some vanilla,hazelnut and oak and as it warms some booze and dark fruits aswell and overall it's definitely a choc sweet stout but I'd like to see this with less chocolate as it dominates abit too much for me cheers.
