Pours midnight black with a thick beige head. Aromas are chocolate, caramel, mocha. Velvety smooth upfront flavors of chocolate, coffee, caramel. Surprisingly medium mouthfeel--lighter than I anticipated. The finish is coffee and malt but also gypsum. Damn fine beer.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a solid jet black like the oil out of my old ladyís Neon when she forgot to change the oil in a year, darkened tan ring around the glass for a head, nominal lacing. Aroma of coffee, smoke, soot from a chimney that hasnít been clean in about 3 years, and burnt brimstone from the 3rd layer of hell- awesome! Hits the mouth with a wide body thatís thick, malt was practically burnt but they made it workout, middle is a sharp acidity to it, finish continues with the acidity and I detect some cream and a litlle wink. And a smile. With no panties on... and the old lady aint around!

A heavy dark pour with minimal head. Aroma coffee, oatmeal and a spicy hoppiness. Taste is delicious, reflects the aroma with added chocolate and dark dried fruits. Mouthfeel is silky with a touch of effervescence. Hops give the after taste great carry. Great beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured at cellar temp (56F) from bottle. Pours a dark black color with two finger tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, and a hint of oat. The coffee part of the aroma is earthy and a little dusty. Taste is like a black morning coffee with creamy chocolate. Mouthfeel is very round. This is deliciously creamy and you might even think of a milk stout with this creaminess. The oats do a great job making that creamy texture. Great on a cold evening.

12 oz. bottle poured into shaker. Pours black with a gorgeous two-finger tan head. Deep roasty malt, coffee and chocolate aroma. Sublime lightly sweet coffee flavor that still manages to have a hop presence in the finish. Mouthfeel is as thick and chewy as it looks. Iíd heard about this stuff for a while and am very happy itís finally available in my area.
