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!

From notes dating back to August
A - pitch black creamy mocha head, solid looking stout
S - toasty coffee, licorice, cocoa, and a hint of booze
T - Big coffee kick, licorice and cocoa are prominent with a lightly smoky finish
M - chewy smooth start, creamy through the middle, slightly bitter finish, not even a hint of the high octane within
O - Its been a while, but i recall really savouring this brew with my beer advocate in crime andrenaline, very impressed by the flavours and masking of the high alcohol content, would love to stumble across this again
