4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Robust, smoky aroma has licorice, coffee, molasses, caramel and semi-sweet chocolate notes. Pours a rich, warm sable a fleaís eyebrow above black with a thick, fine-bubbled and rather persistent tan head. Hearty flavor has a strong smoky malt overtone that ushers in chocolate, coffee, caramel, nutty, earthy and subtle licorice notes that boogie on your tongue and stay long after the beer has gone down the pipes. Firm, smooth, oily texture is fairly fizzy, though the tingle does not persist the way the flavors do. Somewhat bitter hops make their appearance only in the final act, the bitterness nicely balancing the chocolaty sweetness. This is indeed a monster - monstrously delicious!
