Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!

Nose: espresso, chocolate, roast malt
Pours heart of darkness black with a thin 1/2" tan tinted foam cap, some lace, has legs.
Palate: light sweetness followed by black espresso coffee that gives way to a hint of chocolate and a hint of dark dried fruit.
Creamy rich full body, medium low carbonation, warming but the alcohol is not as hot as you would expect for 12% abv.
