A: Pitch, even when held to the light. Almost no head to speak of. Dark tan ring of foam rings my glass. Lasted the whole glass. Little to no hop aroma.

S: Chocolate, roasted grains. Bare coffee notes. Big nose full of 10% abv.

T: Excellent cocoa bitterness from the roasted malts. Dark fruits and cocoa. Fades into coffee and diet cola with a lingering bitterness. I'm not sure if this is from the hops or roast.

M: Lucious. Not quite as viscous as I expected from the pour.

O: Quite a specimen. This was on my list of big stouts to try and I'm glad to have knocked it off. I'd drink this all the time if it was local, but I'm not sure that I'll seek it out again.

Price: $13.00 Served In: Pint Glass
