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!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a deep ebony color with a mocha head that leaves chinks of lacing.

Smells of deep roasted notes along with some sweetness.

Tastes of the deep roasted notes rounded out by some sweetness and earthy hops. Notes of coffee, chocolate, and molasses lead off with some dark brown sugar sweetness to it. Chocolate lingers on with some roasted and earthy bitterness rounding it out. Booze is present, but pleasant.
Chocolaty sweetness continues to linger through the finish.

Mouthfeel is full with a creamy amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is delicious and a must try for any big stout fan.
