COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most decadent creation ever to be crafted in FCBs brewhouse. Deep roasty flavors, rich chocolate nose, coffee undertones and impeccable balance are the result of imperializing an already flawless brew.

The smell was wonderful in the glass, but things tailed off from there. The coffee notes were not as strong and the beer felt thinner than expected in the mouth. Finish improved it somewhat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle for 2.99. Pours black with a brown hue and a small mocha colored head. Aroma is mostly roasted coffee with a little chocolate aroma. Taste is similar with a heavy amount of roasted coffee and sweet chocolate. Body is about average, a little creamy. I am surprised by how much this beer tastes like coffee instead of chocolate. Its not bad; in fact its pretty good. Its just not what I was expecting.

Steve_0 (2575) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a big tan head and great lacing. Sweet cocoa, roasty, lightly earthy, bready, grassy, and vanilla aroma. Taste is dark chocolate, light oak, toasted malt, a hint of vanilla, earthy hops, and brown sugar. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Damn decent stout.

12oz bottle pours a fairly viscous, opaque black with some off white head. Nose is what youd expect, malt, chocolate, toast, caramel, brown sugar, nutty. Flavor is more milk chocolate, caramel, sweet, malt, light toast, light toasted almond. Full, dry finish.
