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!

S- Vanilla in oodles.

T - Vanilla, coffee, licorice , mild bitterness on back palate gives perfect balance

M - Medium not oily, amazing. Warming alcohol creeps up on you

O- World class.... Dangerous beer goes down all too easily. This truly is a beer with a Wow factor.
