Cloying sweet. Strong coffee on nose that reminds me of my morning coffee, which is nice. There was something funky on the palate....very molasses.

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very dark black with small head and curtains of lace. Aroma of dark chocolate, espresso, deep roast malts. A little sweet in the aroma that is not apparent in the taste. Taste is roasted barley, dark chocolate and black strong coffee. Bitters as the finish gets longer. Slick in the mouth not as think as expected. Does not present well but is an excellent brew

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark with lots of tan head and lacing. Aroma of dark roasted coffee, some sweetness, and espresso. Roasty throughout slight dark fruit but mainly dark chocolate and coffee. Just enough hops to cut the sweetness and keep it fairly dry. Roast lingers for a very long finish

12 oz bottle. Don’t even recognize these bottles anymore, and then wonder how the hell i never rated it in the first place. I gotta start going back through all the beers i had in my freshman year of beer drinking. This was definitely one of them. Nice toasty flavor here. Roasted malt heavy. One of the most interesting stouts these guys have. Ill have another.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from a trade. Poured into glass. Nose is a very inviting dark cocoa powder and baking chocolate. LARGE light brown head with large bubbles. Taste is very dark roast coffee and bitter like coffee grinds. Overall very good, but a tad too focused on the dark coffee bitterness without the body to back it up
