COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all it must taste rare!

So this looks and smells fantastic. Flavor is thick, chocolaty and delicious. And the $3.99 price for a can is quite inviting. The only thing keeping this from having a much higher score is the fact that I got a quite significant aluminum flavor from the can poking through. Really strange for a 12% beer. Weird. Definitely would have again from a bottle though.

HuskerTan (1848) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Can. A- Coffee, chocolate, alcohol, roasty, tobacco, fruity, burnt sugars. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Booze, cocoa, roasty. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, boozy finish. O- At first pop of the top, it bursts with strong coffee. However that faded fast. The aroma was pretty complex but the taste was overwhelmingly boozy. A little bit too boozy in fact. It was a solid stout but too strong for me to completely love. I love Jesus but this was too much Jesus. Doesnt live up to the hype.

Jaceks21 (121) - Zgorzelec, POLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Aromat bucha od czekolady z wanilią. Pojawia się odrobina likieru, słodyczy. Wyczuwalna lekka wędzonka. Czarne, nieprzejrzyste, z lekką pianą, ktra zostaje do ostatniego łyku. Gęste, ale w smaku niesamowicie gładkie, świetny balans. Nie jest zbyt alkoholowe i nie jest zbyt słodkie. Alkohol świetnie przykryty, rozgrzewa przełyk i świetnie uzupełnia całość. Po prostu jedno z tych piw, ktre trzeba wypić, jeśli ma się taką okazję.
