Jet black body, toasty tan head, smooth beer

moderate lacing

Mouthfeel thick

Taste: Chocolate, charcoal, grape, dark fruits, toffee, and burnt roast malt at the finish

Smells: booze, cocoa

Overall, this is brilliant. I'm buying a six pack very soon.

Taste: Awesome creamy blend of cocoa, black coffee and light toffee
Feel: Full bodied with medium to high carbonation, alcohol makes it feel bigger than it is
Overall: Amazing stout, PERIOD
