Produced a full head of cappuccino brown, that left a plethora of primitive dinosaur hieroglyphs. Completely opaque and dark as strong coffee. Turkish coffee impression similarly informs the aromas, with a raspberry-dark chocolate streak, a tiny dust of licorice, and some burnt caramel. Mouthfeel is stout perfection, bordering on whole milk with chocolate syrup. Espresso, gingerbread, burnt wheat, bitter, baker’s chocolate, allspice, dried cassis, wormwood, and burnt lavender. #doublestout #stout #beer #beerbeerbeer #greenflash #abv #stoutout #beeroclock #beerculture #beerdrinkers #stoutitallout #?

This beer is almost too good to be true. It is a double stout I could drink all day long. #mmmmmbeer

Super hops meets super stout. Very hoppy, chocolate, and hints of coffee.

Great double stout - 8.8abv. Not too far on the chocolate/coffee side, but the right amount of influence.

Not exactly "big, bold, and complex," compared to its peers it has well-integrated alcohol, hops, and sweetness, and then is rather direct in its roasty, chocolatey flavor profile. I think this bottle has a year or two of age.
