Tasted from can. Pours black with thick beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and nuts. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet and chewy. Hides the huge ABV extremely well. Flavors of coconut and nuttiness up front which gives way to a big coffee flavor. Finishes with bitter chocolate. Awesome beer.

The beer pours a nice brown head that dissipates at a moderate pace. It has a fairly good looking look with a nice oily texture and its dark chocolate black color.

The smell has a nice and moderate coffee note mixed with a light and sweet almond note that mixes well with the coconut. There is a also a sweet chocolate that makes the smell even more indulgent.

The taste contains the same notes as the smell. The difference is that almond note is a bit more intense and takes center stage while the coffee is pushed to the outer edges.

The feel is good. It's heavy but creamy smooth with some tingling carbonation.

Overall, another pretty good and indulgent stout worth getting. It has a good balance among the different notes to the point where it's a nice dessert to have.

16 oz. can from early September release. Poured into Kane tulip glass and allowed to warm.

L: Small light brown head with almost no retention, leaving nothing but a thin ring. Beer is a dark black.

S: Lots of cocoa, some coffee, coconut, and almond nuttiness. Roasted malts.

T: Again cocoa really pops out, with nuttiness coming along, a bit marzipan or almondbrot-like. Coffee more to the rear than in most of these stouts. Roasty malts on finish. A very little alcohol heat, not much really.

F: Full-bodied, not much carbonation. Construction and balance are decent, but flavors could work together more. Points for very little in the way of alcohol heat at this ABV. Still somewhat boozy.

O: It's not in the league of Trillium, which puts together these amazing dessert-type stouts, but it is a very solid effort and barrel-aging could improve it.
