12 oz bottle thanks to the great IBUnit63. Been looking forward to this one for a while. Served up in my Terrapin snifter.

A: Poured a pretty nice and dark black. Very little light gets through but that which does comes out in the form of a very dark and deep red. A very thin line of mocha head develops and turns into a lasting ring. The ring creates some nice lacing that leaves some nice waves on the glass. The brew also leaves a this brown film on the glass as well. Very nice.

S: Smell is mostly of coffee, nicely roasted coffee beans. Chocolate comes out as well. Nice roasted caramel malts come out as well in the nose. Although it only has a few notes in the nose, they are very appetizing and enjoyable.

T: The first thing that comes out is the coffee in the taste as well. There are some really nice oatmeal notes as well. Kinda shocking how much oat comes out. Chocolate is rich and smooth. There is also some really nice lactose notes as well along with some really nice nuttiness. This brew is very well rounded and damned tasty.

M: Full bodied brew that is oily and thick. Really coats the mouth and leaves a lot of malt an oats in the aftertaste. ABV is not noticable at all.

D: This brew is great in the nose, taste and appearance. The crazy part about this beer is how easily it goes down for the style and ABV. This is truly a great beer and I am most thankful for getting the chance to drink this one. Just amazing.
