The 8.0 per cent abv, bottle conditioned beer is brewed from British, Czech and Danish malts with Styrian hops and an English yeast strain. All the ingredients are transported along precarious roads to the brewery located 3,500 feet above sea level.

The pour was a murky pitch black with an average (1-2 finger) chocolate shake brown creamy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a thin film and medium collar that pretty much lasted throughout and had good sticky lacing.
The aroma was of a roasted dark malt, mild resin hops and a leathery yeast with notes of chocolate, dried dark fruit (prunes) and a nice mild alcohol tinge.
The taste was very malty and just a tad sweet with a hint of chocolate early on, then progressed with a mild bitterness, a touch of dark fruit and a bold coffee note towards the finish. The flavor hung on for a decent duration after the swallow with a smooth choco-coffee taste and a mild alcohol warming sensation at the end.
Mouthfeel was medium in body with a thin oily texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was a nice a roasty brew, although I did find it to be just a little thin for a stout it did possess very nice taste and a great drinkability...
Poured black with a large, creamy, tan colored head that lasted a good long time.
Aroma dominated by mocha coffee with hints of roasted malts and bitter chocolate.
Sweet malty taste up front followed by mocha coffee with a bitter chocolate finish. Slight alcohol presence, perfectly balanced.
Silky and thick mouthfeel with above average carbonation.
