Black pour with a tan head...my mouth started to salivate with the thought of drinking this beer. On the nose there’s roasted malts, coffee cocoa and dark fruit. The aromas flow into the flavour that lingers with a warm sweet finish.

Pours black as a starless night. Very good head, especially for 9.4% alcohol. Retention is slightly below normal, as is lacing. The nose is rather subdued, chocolate and coffee are noted over a light alcohol base. As it warms, chocolate comes more forward as does vanilla, dark fruit and roast. Light full body with a creamy texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with effervescence in the middle and finish. The flavor profile is intense, complex, but is not well balanced. The alcohol is not hidden well enough. It begins with a rush of coffee that quickly yields to a rich dark chocolate with notes of vanilla. A bit of effervescence in the middle brings out the mild roast and hop bitterness. The bitterness is citric in nature and fades into light dark fruit, mostly fig, notes with a bit of char and smoke. Throughout alcohol is in the background, but as the flavors fade in the finish, it predominates. Take the alcohol content down a bit, and this becomes outstanding. As is, it’s very good.
