Drought. Inky black with very small tan head that dissipates quickly, coffee aroma, bitter coffee taste with berries in the background, long finish. Good solid stout but a bit too coffee-bitter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Pours a jet black with a full 2 finger mocha head
S - Dark cocoa, roasted black malt, toasted wheat bread crust, toasted sugar. Some sour artificial grape along with alcohol vapors.
T - Moderate cocoa powder coats the entire mouth. Heavily roasted malts, hazelnut, brown sugar, backed with a peppery hop bitterness. Some espresso comes out towards the finish.
M - Full bodied, but too much carbonation.
I’m digging the intense chocolate and the hops mixes with the espresso flavors to add nice bitterness. It starts out sweet but turns pretty dry toward the finish. It could use a little less carbonation. Great flavors overall.

Pitch black pour into snifter..substantial dark brown head..aroma of dark chocolate..espresso..French vanilla coffee..molasses..quite roasty with perhaps a note of some wood....medium body..slight chalkiness with some black cherry on finish..no real trace of the extremely high abv..surprisingly quite drinkable..texture is not really as full as expected..which is probably the biggest issue with this..
