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

Flavors of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, bitter chocolate, bitter roots, straw hops. Overall rich, full bodied, flavorful with some bitter notes.

rondphoto (4059) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 28, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown/black with a good 3/4" beige head cover, a wall of lace. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste is milk chocolate malt that grows until hops make a timid entrance on the swallow. Malt takes over again, moving the chocolate milk to a long sweet finish. This is a big brew, and an exquisite brew, well worth the effort. Highly recommended.

CObiased (321) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours dark chocolate black. Light head that fades to nothing. Nice but typical aroma - coffee, burnt malts, little chocolate and a whiff of licorice (more robust as it warms). I was hoping for more from this beer. It's good but not great. Yes it has the formulaic characteristics of a stout but not enough chocolate to call it double. Rogue double chocolate stout is much better but much more pricey.

scotchzombie (533) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Boot black with short tan head. Audible carbonation. No lacing. Wet. Aroma alcohol, cocoa malt. Taste is roasted chocolate malt, coffee, alcohol. Slightly burnt coffee aftertaste. Flavorful but a bit thin.
