Dark brown to black pout with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of coffee and chocolate notes. The flavor is similar with some coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malt and oats coming through. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Good stout.

2013 release. Pours total black, with a bit of caramel head. Big coffee, and oat texture on the nose, with a touch of roast malt character. Very thick across the palate. Lots of dark coffee, roasted malt and oat texture. Very heavy, but still good.

3 Nov 2013, tap at Ritual Brewery. Black. Nose is coffee and maybe maple syrup. Med body and fizzy. Carbonation burns the tongue a bit. There are lemon hops, coffee beans, syrup, moderate alcohol. Pretty good.

Bottle. Alcohol, coffee, and chocolate syrup aroma. Black with small tan head. Sweet chocolate/coffee malt and alcohol flavor. Decent body. Pretty good - not surprisingly boozy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from BA Brew33. Clunky pitch black pour with orange-tan head. Big coffee roast, burnt grain, light molasses, and a whisp of smoke. Some tart dark fruit. Flavor starts with semi-sweet chocolate and fades quickly to bitter, unsweetened chocolate, roasted malt, and steeped coffee. Some acidity that lingers to a tongue-watering bitter roast. Peppery alcohol and bitter chocolate finish. Coating palate. A seemingly under-rated stout.
