The beer is pitch black. Smells of cocoa and booze. Heavy chocolate from the cocoa nibs. Perfect carbonation delivers a buttery alcohol blast. ---Rated via @BubOhioBeer

Espresso aroma, pours a thick black color, no head, beer sticks to the glass. Mostly coffee flavor and chocolate. Excellent.

Are you kidding me? Are you f-n kidding me? This beer is the most epic beer of all beers. A pitch black color with a tan head. The aroma is chocolate, espresso, caramel, and vanilla. The flavor is perfectly balanced with some german chocolate cake, espresso, coffee, and caramel. The aftertaste is somewhat sweet but the bitterness from the coffee balances everything. Is it sacrelig to say better than Dark Lord or Expedition? This beer probably is!

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2015 This beer is an explosion if flavor. It pours thick and looks like motor oil. It could be a sipping beer but I found myself guzzling it because it tastes so darn good. Reminds me of some mighty fine imperial stouts that are aged in Whiskey barrels. Don’t need the whiskey barrel. This brew stands in its own. Definitely a powerful brew. Drink a bomber if this and go to bed!

Rating #2141 - 2015.10.31 - Black as the belt of a bible thumping Albertan in a karate class, with a weak tan head that caps nicely. Aroma is heavy roast malt and dark roast coffee, molasses. Huge cocoa, espresso notes, Taste is heavy on roast malt and coffee flavours, pronounced sweetness, well bittered. J.
